index.php?t=getfile&id=18534&private=0Which software program is being used by you experienced modelers and Shapeways to generate the information circled in red? I want to get that program to measure my new models better and avoid reject on print issues to save a few weeks time going back and forth experimenting. I am using Sketchup but its time to move up in capability I guess.

I looked hard in the forums and believe it's likely one of the programs in the tutorials. I just cant seem to figure out which one. Hopefully its not one of the expensive ones.

The software used in the image is called Magics and is made by a company called Materialise. The full software is very expensive indeed - but they have a free version available called MiniMagics.

It's fairly basic in its functionality, but will allow you to do those measurements and also highlight (but not fix) STL file issues.

Thank You. Very much appreciated,

Looks like Minimagic is PC only. I think I'll switch all modeling over to PC as I am getting tired of non-mac compatible great software.
