It all depends on what software you are using. What software is it?
You could try Autodesk 3D utility http://bit.ly/1nkWfSa You will have to make a hole for the excess powder to escape.

As for your profile image.
Open the 'Settings' from the drop down menu on your image (top right)
This will change the headings to Email, Account, Profile, Favorites etc.
Pick Profile, hover over image, Edit
Pick this and open another file.

Thank you for that link, I did not know about this tool.

My models are generated by 3D scanning, so I can use any software for postprocessing. Now I use Blender and do it myself, manually. So I just want to make this as automatic as possible. Fully automatic tool or web-service would be ideal.


Continuing profile picture offtopic - I know about edit button in settings. I tried to pick another file multiple times, but this did not change my picture. I just see progress bar for a couple of seconds and than it just stays the same - no effect whatsoever.

Hello

I need a 3D file (STP or IGS) of a plastic army action figure. I am an ARMY veteran and have great idea but I am not sure how to implement it.

I was told this is the first thing I would need

Please let me know if you can do this and what the costs associated with it are.

Hey guys,

Wanted to share another quick update:

Ever since we started offering Print It Anyway, you've been telling is its a great way for you to learn from your models - even the rejected ones. You've also been telling us you'd love to just print-it-anyway when you get a rejection on a normal order.

So today we're making it even easier for you to learn and experiment with rejected models. After a model becomes rejected, you will be able to purchase the rejected model through Print It Anyway via the "Upload & Buy" page. On that page, you will see a "Print It Anyway" button next to the rejected materials, allowing you to just PRINT IT ANYWAY!

YAY

Carry on giving us feedback, and we'll act on it :-)

Natalia


Will this re-insert the print it anyway part into the original order?

WOW so cool! Can't wait to see how this turns out. Your entire Bee Set collection was amazing and it was fun watching each new model come it. Looking forward to doing the same with these models.

Things are finally working for me, I guess. However just adding the "multiple materials" label to my two existing uploaded photos is changing the order of the photos in the scroll band, leaving a new render between the two uploaded photos. That's going to be messy so I hope you're eventually adding something that automatically orders photos based on a pre-established standard material order or allows an override to set specific orders.

The render looks a lot better than the photo, or in other words I've got to up my game in the photo taking department.
