Re: STL export orientation

In case anyone else is export STLs for 3D printing, the magic incantation to get Cura to read the STL correctly was: - repair it in Microsoft's 3D Tools: https://tools3d.azurewebsites.net/ - import the resulting 3MF file into Autodesk's MeshMixer, and export as ASCII STL And the results: https://img...

Re: STL export orientation

That worked perfectly for orientation, thank you. I'm still trying to get my slicer (3D printing CAM software) to recognize it as a solid object, but I haven't exhausted my possibilities there yet. Here's a rhombicuboctahedron, snub cube, and part of a small snub icosicosidodecahedron: https://imgur...

STL export orientation

I just printed a lovely Snub Cube via the STL Export and my 3D printer. I'm looking for other interesting shapes to print now, and came across the Small Snub Icosicosidodecahedron (too ambitious?). My problem is getting it to set on a flattish face for printing -- preferably the 3-way symmetry axis ...

Showing vector angles

My particular addiction is building models of polyhedra using a kids' building toy called Knex. To do so, I 3D-print vertex connectors with the appropriate angles. I had some difficulty obtaining the correct angles until I found Great Stella, and Robert helpfully pointed out the Display/Show Vertex ...
