Making a reverse copy

Recommended Posts

Posted · Making a reverse copy

Hi....I have a stl file of a knife blade which I have printed. The print came out great but is only half of the blade...meaning I would like to reverse it so I can glue the two halfs together to make a more realistic model to be used in movie making. How do I make a reverse model to print. Using Cura 4. Thxs in advance

Hi,

why not just use the "mirror" function of Cura (the 4th symbol in the left toolbar; shortcut 'M')?

Regards

Thxs for the reply...I thought mirror just made a copy..placed another beside the first. I printed a neck knife and it came out near perfect...so I wanted to print another (the other side) to glue to the first to make it stronger and look more real. We are using these in a movie. I will try that, thxs again
