General Discussion / Re: How to print complex building
« on: September 17, 2015, 11:57:39 AM »
How large are you going to print this building? Although it looks bad to your eye, there is a chance that the size of those lost details is below what the printer could possibly print.

One option is to do the Make Solid on separate parts of the model, and then combine the parts in a different way. It may be the case that once you have multiple watertight shells, you don't actually need to combine them, your printing software may be able to do it for you. For example, in MakerBot Desktop if you import multiple shells as a single object, that is bad, but if you import each shell separately, it will handle merging inside the slicer.

Ok, thanks for the report, I know why the transforms/attract fail. I think I can fix that pretty easily.

I am still not sure why the import/export round-trip doesn't work. Can you send a sample file? To meshmixer at autodesk com

Please post a sample file so we can try to debug (although please check in meshmixer 2.9.2 which was released since this post...)

Questions & Troubleshooting / Re: Orientation tool

the Strength part of the orientation tool is based on the Strength Analysis tool. Basically, we try to orient the object for maximum strength, as MagWeb describes. We use the Strength Analysis to determine this orientation, so thin parts should be lying parallel to the print bed, rather than perpendicular.

You can also set the orbit center using the 'c' hotkey (with cursor over the mesh - it will be set to the first ray-intersection point).

Sorry, we have not updated any of the printer settings in recent releases.

Sorry, you probably need to ask this on a Type A forum...I don't know if anyone on this forum has a Type A printer.
We have it in our list in Meshmixer, but we do not provide support for the printers.

Can you post or send us a sample file? Pretty hard to help you otherwise. If you don't want to post publicly, send to meshmixer at autodesk dot com.

can you post some examples of parts you would like to have a mold for? Ideally with molds you have created.

I have been experimenting with mold generation but I am not sure how "smart"/clever it needs to be...

a screenshot/photo would be appreciated...

Wish List / Re: Export pivots as placeholding objs?
« on: August 31, 2015, 11:57:02 AM »
Yes, this is a bit too specific to build in, I think.

One way to do it more quickly in 2.9.2 is to use the new 'd' hotkey in the Align tool, with this you can quickly click through pivots and drop your marker sphere at each one.

With a script, you would basically iterate over objects, if it is a pivot, gets its frame, convert to world coordinates, and you have a 3D point that can be written to file, read read into OpenSCAD or something to generate the spheres.

Eventually we will have a script window inside meshmixer, then you will be able to use this as a sort of macro...

hey no worries - no pressure from me! I am just excited to try it =)

hrm...glad it is working, but I didn't do anything!

Yes, things like this can work, but we need about .5mm tolerances between parts, otherwise they will not fit. I can do a test print if you want to email me the parts ( at autodesk dot com)

I can get different flexibilities, but if it is flexible at all, the color is basically always black.

Anyway we have lots of materials so I am happy to do some trial prints =)
