Meshmixer update

Recommended Posts

Posted · Meshmixer update

I noticed that there was a newer version of Meshmixer out which seem to have some enhancements for 3D printing. (http://www.meshmixer.com/download.html)

Someone wrote a nice article a while back on how to deal with overhangs and get great results using this program.

I noticed they had settings under "Print" to go to various Shapeways devices and Makerbot printers. I manually keyed in the Ultimaker's specs (210, 210, 205 and 0.02 printing resolution) and toyed with it some. They seem to have automated some of the Repair and Support Structure areas.

One thing I noticed was some of the STL files I was importing were shrunk way small compared to how they open in Cura.

Has anyone used the newer version for their Ultimaker printers?

I usually use it for supports and brushing some fixes if needed and then export again to slice in Cura. I dont know how Cura and Meshmixer handle STL import but it might depend on how the file was exported at first. I noticed that for obj files Cura assume that 1 unit is 1 mm (at least coming from 3dsMax).
