State-of-the-art solution for 3D meshes
Developed by the leading software company in 3D design, engineering, and entertainment, Autodesk, Inc. released Meshmixer to help you in your 3D meshes needs. Through this newfangled program, you will be able to efficiently check the models for printability and orientation. Aside from that, you will have the capability to create and sculpt 3D objects under here, as well, free-of-charge.
What is MeshMixer used for?
This prototype design tool that is based on high-resolution dynamic triangle meshes once started as a simple tool for 3D collages. Now, it can effectively edit STL files to ensure quality in 3D printing. It is very useful for quick format adjustment as it can recognize and change the wall thickness of an object.
If it detected that the model you created only contains one 2D wall, this software solution will state that it is not good to be printable. If the basic structure of the model is messy or not sliceable properly it will be determined by this tool, as well. However, there are times that its analysis is not accurate, as it identifies errors that are not present and even suggests eliminating a part of it.
The most useful feature that it offers is The Plane Cut, which is used to cut models, or .stl files into several parts or their individual parts again. On the other hand, it is also capable of hollowing and draining models that are intended for SLA printing. Thus, if your model contains a huge polygon amount or file size for the actual slicers, this tool can greatly aid to adjust manually.
Ensures quality of 3D models
Despite some inaccuracies, Meshmixer is still a handy graphic and design software solution. It can help you efficiently determine the issues in your 3D models before it proceeds to print. This kind of tool is essential to make sure that the quality of your 3D projects is always impressive and professional-grade.
