Bug Reports / Re: Version 2.4 on XP
« on: March 17, 2016, 08:58:35 AM »
This version is pretty old, the most recent one that runs on XP is the 2.9.2 available here

See this thread for more details

The only benefits of ascii version is that it is human readable (but this is definitely useless for huge meshes!) and that some tools don't read binary version...

Maybe you imported a binary mode stl file, and exported an ascii version? this could explain file size despite reduced number of triangles.

Congratulation for this BIG achievement! Funny enough that mesh mixing that gives the name of the product is among "to be documented section" ;)

Any chance to get a pdf version to read it quietly off connexion? (eg. while commuting...). Yes, I know there are many other solutions, but...

Any chance to keep compatibiliy with XP? the latest versions (including this one) install fine, but complain that "GetUserPreferredUILanguages" entry point is missing in KERNEL32.DLL :(

Chances it's the same, according to this comment
I deleted the original monster batch of obj's a long time ago.(snip) It is scan data from a lab

...and the link is missing...!
If you mean this one I followed a few links in the thread, and finally got here where you can download a zip file with the full body composed of a thousand of .obj files. A chore to import all files in Meshmixer, but no need for Zbrush.

Questions & Troubleshooting / Re: Bridging a hole
« on: November 18, 2015, 02:47:11 AM »
The proper way of drilling a hole is to select the hole area on both sides, then in the menu that opens after selection, choose "Tube Handle". Hopefully you have kept the undrilled mesh? Otherwise, repair the holes you cut using Analysis -> Inspector

Questions & Troubleshooting / Re: File causes windows explorer to crash
« on: October 25, 2015, 02:02:38 AM »
I had the same issue in the past with another program, it was caused by the file preview. Could it be a file format problem that causes whatever app generating windows preview to crash?

That's the problem of using an OS no longer supported. Some libraries provided by Microsoft rely on modern OSes entry points not provided by XP.

It does make a difference... previous version 2.9.2 ( worked fine on XP, but I have the same problem as you with 2.9.3... Going to revert now (I didn't do the update recently so I didn't noticed the problem...)

Wish List / Re: Cut Mirror and Weld
« on: September 15, 2015, 01:21:07 AM »
Interesting... I didn't realized that the mirror tool did a remesh near the seam. This is interesting to do just the opposite of your proposal, cut a mesh with a nicely triangulated boundary: mirror the mesh where you want to cut it, then discard one half.

Questions & Troubleshooting / Re: Face groups not showing

Facegroup display is probably disabled. Press space bar to show the hotbox, then click on 2nd row, rightmost button. For more details on the hotbox, see Magweb's "UIBasics II" paper (
