Playtime - Meshmixer 2.1

Posted · Playtime - Meshmixer 2.1

I've started using it, but they've changed the UI so much, the tutorials that are online are pretty much useless.

I think I'm missing something in terms of basic operations. (I know I'm missing something!)

Simple things like rotation of parts etc, and the extrusion stuff is very different.

Any one got good pointers to tutorials with the new gui?

    I have not spotted how to do this but is there a way to get Meshmixer to reduce the size of an object by, say, 25% (all axes)? I know you can manually rescale using alignment but you cannot, as far as I can see, use that to get an equal reduction on all 3 axes.,

    Haven't done it with Meshmixer, but with netfabb Basic it is pretty easy (part->scale).

    So it is true then, eating Weetabix for breakfast does make you go blind :)

    As Dim3nsioneer mentions, you can set the physical size of your model with the Unit/Scale tool.

    You can also scale using the Transform gizmo ('t' hotkey). Click and drag on the the little white box in the middle.

    If you are familiar with the old UI, the main change is that now many of the tools are in second-level menus that only appear once you have made a selection, above the selection tool parameters.

    Sorry about all the out-of-date tutorials, unfortunately meshmixer is made by a very small team and nobody has the job of writing documentation/tutorials.

    Hey meshmixer, we are still grateful for this tool. Please keep it alive! It is one of the best/funniest tools I ever had the joy to use.

      • 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
