Merging two STL files

Posted · Merging two STL files

Hi all

I've added a second extruder to my Ultimaker2 and all works as it should.

My question is I've modified a file that has a nozzle size indicator that clips on the from of the printer, however the numbers it are a bit difficult to read at first glance.

So I drew in Solidworks a dial with 'cut' numbers and another file with the extruded numbers in the exact same place as the number 'cuts' on the dial.

The issue is when both are brought into Cura in the correct orientation the extruded numbers are placed above the dial indicator not recessed as desired, could someone guide me as to how to merge the two files so that the extruded numbers sit flush in the 'cuts' made for them. Please see the images below.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
