[Feat.REQ] Separate multiple-models in a single file

Recommended Posts

Shameless ripoff from Simplify3D, small, yet VERY powerfull feature.

If one file has multiple models, i want to separate each into an individual model. From the pic you can see a complex machinery, if i want to print just a single gear from it, its a pain to go back to SolidWorks, chop up that model, save as STL, then load it into Cura. Also, some of us might not have access to mesh-editor or any editor to remove unwanted parts from the file.
The only good thing S3D did well was "simplify" things. One click and all parts were separate. Pick on you want, delete rest and slice.

"CAN IT BE DONE?"

    • 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.
