mest to printable solid?

Recommended Posts

You'll have to modify it in your modelling program to have volume by closing all of the borders on your object so it's 'water tight'.

Your object probably has 0 thickness walls. You can either negatively extrude those walls to create thickness without loosing your shape. Or combine your whole model and close all the open surfaces to have a solid car model.

The process is fairly situational and depends entirely on how your original model was created. Meshmixer can fix 'some' issues, but more likely you'll need to bring it into a modelling program.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
