Dual extrusion merge

Recommended Posts

Hi

Just played with the merge function in Cura. If I multiply one model, mirror it and click on merge it results in a single object, which looks like the single object before. Is there a way to merge it by hand. As I am not sure how cura would know how someone wants to merge two models automatically, i think there needs to be a manual way to merge. Or do i need other software to merge models?

The dual-extrusion merge currently ignores the scaling/rotation/mirror of 1 object when it merges it into the other. So you need to make 2 different STL files. You could mirror 1 part, save it as a new STL and try merging that, but I think you'll generate an odd offset then.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
