Questions & Troubleshooting / Re: printable surfaces from mathematica

An alternative to close ends of tube (after joining helix halves as described by Magweb):
- in select mode, double click on each facing boundaries to select them
- Pressing shift, unselect a small portion of each boundary. Both unselected areas must be more or less in front of each other.
- Use the bridge tool to fill most of the end, except for a small hole where boundary was not selected.
- Close the hole by clicking on the blue sphere in inspector tool.
- Repeat for the other end.

As soon as I can figure out how to attach photos I'll update this post
To allow attachments click on "Additional options" at bottom of reply field.

While replying, click on "Additional options" to see attachment capability.

the fit-to-view button in the hotbox (hold spacebar, button to right of magnifying glass)
Btw, what about adding help bubbles on hotbox buttons?

Are you  the "Anoved" I know from LEGO world? If so, welcome here (and if not, welcome nonetheless...)

- that within this tool double clicking on the selected areas creates handles (red spheres)?
Right click works too (and may be easier)

That's where you see the usefulness of some documentation - I forgot about the "1" smoothing and double click on smooth boundary...

As told by Magweb, different users have different usages! See for example my low-poly count tutorials, something MM was not created for initially.

From what I see in your image, it seems that your heightmap is not a single skin but does have some thickness. And it seems that the inner skin is inside out (pink areas are supposed to be seen from inside an object). After that... the holes and (perhaps) self intersecting surface near the tips will not help! Could you share the file?

Weird. Can you share your scaled mesh before trying to hollow it?

You have a mesh dimension problem, your model measure only 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.3mm so meshmixer can't hollow it with a plausible wall thickness. As suggested by RMS, enlarge your mesh using Analysis -> Units/Dimensions tool.

Questions & Troubleshooting / Re: Meshmixer Multiplying File Size?
« on: January 12, 2015, 02:21:55 AM »
STL large file size is probably caused by usage of STL text mode instead of binary mode. Most probably your 3D printer software doesn't crash because of file size but because it doesn't support stl text mode. So when exporting, try "STL Binary Format" option instead of "STL ASCII Format"

Wish List / Re: Plane cut option to keep both sides as separate objects

It does work, but I don't really see the point of splitting the mesh without beeing able to select one half or the other?

When you are in plane cut mode, choose "Slice group" mode instead of cut, this will create two face groups separated at plane cut location. You can then select one group and separate (edit -> separate, Y shortcut)

Interesting - thanks for the tip!
