    You can load images straight into cura if all you want is a "height map" so to speak.

     

    i tried this out, and its capabilities are garbage compared to the mattercontrol one. lines and extrusions are drawn from nowhere; and the height map i cant see ever being useful for any functional print. know of anything else?

    can someone help me find a better 3d converter compatible with MatterControl. MatterControl just refuses to convert my images at all and no one can seem to help me. It was working fine when I first downloaded the app, the within the first 3minutes of using, it completely stopped. I have a Mac, someone please help me or point me to the right direction for a better and more effective one
