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)

Yes, try to unplug your network cable. It worked for me...

Could be the same issue I had, see here: http://meshmixer.com/forum/index.php?topic=1848.0

Questions & Troubleshooting / Re: brush size
« on: December 12, 2014, 05:02:14 AM »
Brush size is not controlled by mouse wheel in 123D navigation mode. Switch to Meshmixer navigation mode (File -> Preferences -> General).
BTW, RMS: the [ ] keys supposed to control brush size don't work with a French layout keyboard...

If you have only a few letters to add, meshmix tool is probably the way to go, letters and digits are standard shapes included in Meshmixer.
If you have more text (or want more font freedom) the method suggested here is probably more efficient - but more involved...

Click on the object you want to move (or select it in object browser) then Edit -> Transform (shortcut T). You can then move it by dragging the colored arrows of tranform thingy.
