I work in 3DS Max and export as an .obj. I’ve had a couple of files that I’ve had to re-upload, usually because of wall thickness. Sometimes their units don’t match up as well, I’ve had files that have the units set to millimetres which I’ve had to set as centimetres to get the right size - stuff like that.
They have a “print anyway” service now - which is fine for me because I hand finish the prototypes anyway.
If you are having issues like parts of the model not showing in previews there are a whole variety of reasons that could be happening - but the first thing I’d check is that all the normals are facing outwards.
Currently he’s in pieces while I tidy up the printing artifacting and prime (and sand and sand), but I realised that I hadn’t posted this photo here, so here you go…
Chris is 15.5cm (just a hair over 6 inches) tall.
I finally got a Twins from @garmonsway
they with brother
So, I reinforced him and put him together anD LOOK WHAT HE CAN DO
I had an unexpected visit from the courier at my Day Job this morning. He had remembered that I had had a couple of parcels redirected to the office, and stopped in here instead of home.
I am thrilled.
In order to keep my printing cost down, he is a very thin shell, so when I get him home I’ll be giving him a soapy bath to wash away the printing residue, then filling his internal cavities [eye brow waggle] to give him some strength before I test string him.
his print is caught up in the post, and it doesn’t look like I’ll be getting him before the weekend.
