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.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
