Split Objects into Parts

Recommended Posts

Try Cura 15.04, which you can get here:

https://ultimaker.com/en/cura-software/list

If it works with 15.04, then the new 15.06 is probably not supporting that feature just yet. If it doesn't work even with 15.04, then you're doing something wrong. Maybe your .stl files don't consist of multiple parts? Note that only parts that are not touching each other at all are separable.

Complex parts can take a long time to split up (at least with 15.04). The program doesn't respond anymore, but it is calculating and will continue normally once the splitting is done.

Just out of curiosity, i have never seen any split option? Where is it . I have a model i want to split real quick that wont load into maya, and im on my tablet which i hate using for anything other than drawing or sculpting. They need to invent a pen with a scroll wheel. Ill try some other splitting programmes in the meantime.

Lol, i was looking in all the menus, never though of right clicking! Its hung for a while so ill give it a bit before i give up and do it properly in a 3d app. I guess it either takes ages or doesnt like complicated geometry. Not good in a hurry, lol.

But that one is still missing with Cura 1.99, isn't it?

 

Correct. It will not be in the first official release of the new cura but will be added in later.

It's quite slow so it looks like it hangs.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
