Go to all my models
hi all.

i have rhino 4 and rhino 5 as well as meshlab (which i have not worked with).

i produced some models for the COLOR process using Materialize Magics many years ago and this process was a breeze. however, i am having a hard time getting software that will let me do this now that i don't have access to Magics any more.

can anyone help me with whether Rhino 4 or 5 can do this or whether i should start working with Blender or how to get this done? the objects i have a simply single files that i want in ONE color.

Sketchup allows you to color by face, then export to DAE for color prints. I'm not familiar with the others.

If you're new to 3D printing, learn the secrets from a professional. Get my book "3D Printing with SketchUp"
