Export Sliced Object to STL or OBJ?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Export Sliced Object to STL or OBJ?

When I have done some slicing and playing with settings, I have found that every once in a while the "Make Overhangs Printable" produces a nice aesthetic result. I have only been able to save the file as if it was the original version.

Maybe I am not doing something right, but it would be nice if it can be done or incorporated into the software.

Yes, I can build it on my own, but if the software can do it so darned quickly, why not let it be output?

Or, am I missing something?

    Make overhangs printable does so by performing some magic on the 2D level of the slicing process. This is a whole different ballpark then doing the same thing in 3D.

    We can't save the modified result, because we don't have the modified result ;)

    Well shuckydarns....I just used it on two minor objects I had made and it presented an elegant solution.

    As I said, no problem making the changes, just thought if it was done, then why skin the cat twice?
