Which software??

Recommended Posts

Posted · Which software??

Hi all, i recently downloaded a model which appears to be a 3d scan of a trophy. Which i want to replicate for a game we play at work with a custom base ill design myself. The problem is the base of the model is very jagged and the model is hollow (which is why i assume its a 3d scan.) So i need to import it into something, flatten the bottom and infill the model to allow printing, does anyone have any recommendation for what program to use?? I have Sw2013 which will import some stl's but not all, depends on the complexity of the model i think so if i can do it in that then thatd be great but i just dont know how to go about it at the moment

meshmixer is usually good for fixing scans.

is it a complicated model? Something like a trophy you can model yourself in a cad program. The result will be a lot cleaner.

Not sure I understand you properly, but the model is supposed to be "hollow". Meaning it should consist only of planes (polygons) that define it's shape. The shape must be completely closed, much like a balloon. But there is no actual infill in the model.
