I often have problems with naked edges in my rhino models. I am never quite sure how I got there and it is often hard to repair. I run the check - for naked edges and when the pink areas come up. I try join edge but it appears as though there is only one naked edge and nothing to join it too. I also try to repair it by meshing the model and then doing doing match mesh edges or fill mesh holes but again this has not worked. It is also hard for me to often understand how I got the naked edges because generally the naked edges appear on an area that was built similiarily to another but they only show up in one place. I am wondering if any Rhino users out there could take a look at my model and give me some feedback on what is going on with the pink/naked edges - (1) how they got there (2) how to fix them. If you respond here, I can send the model to you. Thank you for your help in advance!

Howdy,

I just recently noticed that it seems to be a pretty big deal if you keep your units setup as 1unit = 1inch... this will cause a lot of errors when uploading to shapeways.

The correct scale settings inside 3dsmax should be 1unit = 1mm. This is under Customize > units setp > system units in 3ds. Real important 1unit = 1mm... or there's a big chance your model will fail the automated checks.

I say "recently noticed" because I have already printed two models at 1unit = 1inch... both uploaded and printed fine... but now if I export and upload at that setting the obj or stl will fail nine times out of ten. I was pulling my hair out for a week or so trying to figure out the problem, seems obvious now.

Note to shapewyas: It might be wise to mention 3dsmax unit setup settings in the shapeways tutorials for 3ds users.... I didn't anything about that when looking ( http://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/3d_modeling_in_3d_studio_ max_for_shapeways)?

Hi guys,

Has anyone used Autodesk 123D Capture to print stuff with shapeways? http://www.123dapp.com/catch

It looks pretty impressive to capture a physical image and bring it into 3d software. I'm just wondering if anyone has printed with it.

If so, love to hear your thoughts on it.

Hi, I'm new and just trying to upload a cube that should be an inch wide. In inventor it is 1 unit wide and when I upload it I select "inches" when prompted. But the result is 2.5 inches. The same problem happens when I modeled one 18mm wide (I selected "mm") but it became 46mm (which happens to be 1.8 inches). What am I doing wrong?

For example if I want to make a cube with 10 mm sides should I set units to millimeter and draw 10 unit cube?

I am trying to write a obj file with vertices. I am computing the vertex normals in my code and writing to this file as well. When I try to render this file in Meshlab it reads the vertices correctly, but when I go to 'Render->Show vertex normals', it is not showing the normals that I computed. Rather MeshLab computes its own normals and shows them.

I am not sure how I can visualize the normals that I computed/wrote to file. I want to apply Meshlab shader later based on my computed normals.

To test this I created a test obj file-

vn 0.517350 0.517350 0.517350
v 0.500000 0.500000 0.500000
vn -0.333333 0.666667 0.666667
v -0.500000 0.500000 0.500000
vn 0.666667 -0.333333 0.666667
v 0.500000 -0.500000 0.500000
vn -0.666667 -0.666667 0.333333
v -0.500000 -0.500000 0.500000
f 1//1 2//2 3//3
f 4//4 3//3 2//2

This is just one square. Now if I change the normal values in this file, it still shows its own vertex normals when I select 'Render->Show vertex normals'.
How can I have my own normals and apply shader that works on my computed normals?? Please help.

Thanks!!

I am having problems with saving as .stl or .wrl, in SolidWorks. It works, but it loses all colour. At first I had individual faces coloured, which took a long time, now I've got a seperate bodies for each colour, which saves a lot of time when trying to change it. Using either method though, it's not saving the colour to .stl or .wrl, and I don't know why. :\

Help!

Oh, it saves the colour of the overall part specifically, but not any applied to faces or individual bodies.


Edit:
Okay, I'm trying to use Blender now to colour the parts. I've attached the .blend file. When I try to export all the parts as .stl, .obj, or .x3d it doesn't save with colour.

Am I doing something wrong here? Or is it not supposed to save with colour? :\


Okay, I figured out how to add colour using textures with AccuTrans 3D, to .wrl format. Very happy I've done it, now I can start making more stuff. :) (well, I'll order this and see how it turns out...)

It would be great if someone could explain how to do this or just do it for me. I already tried Meshlab but i can figure that out.

I have had some bad problems with blender's STL exporter so i wrote my own script. My solution is a bit kludgy, i didn't write a "real" exporter, because i really cant be assed to study the necessary python api in blender yet (besides it's always changing), but i wrote a standalone script that takes a Wavefront .obj file and outputs a binary STL, since the .obj exporter works WONDERFULLY, and both formats are dead simple to read and write the script was fairly short. That also means that it's useful for other software which can export .obj too.

As an extra i added a feature to let you specify the scale in the STL conversion. So for example you can model your stuff in centimeters and put a scaling factor of 10 to output a STL in Milimeters that Shapeways will accept. The script also automatically skips degenerated faces (points and segments) and triangulates the mesh using a pretty naïve triangle-fan triangulation, so don't use it if you have grossly deformed/non-planar quads or n-gons that are not completely convex.

Well enough babbling, here's the code (attached) As the header says, you're free to do whatever you want with it.

Friends,

I have been trying every possible export fromat from Form-Z and I just can't get the model to look right in any supported format. Does anyone have experience with this? It appears to support a lot of features and I've tried numerous settings for STL and VRML and tried also every format that MeshLab supports and there are problems with all of them!

Perhaps someone has experience with this and can tell me the magical formula - though at this point I'd rather have someone else do the conversion for a fee or a commission from possible sales on this site.

Thank you

Hello.

I was uploading my very first model, which I created in Maya. I had set the units to cm. and the measuring tool measured the height as approximately 13.4 units (cm). all good. I exported an .obj file, and opened it in Meshlab. Here, too the measure tool read 13.4- I assume- cm. I exported a Collada file and uploaded it to SW. The Email I got back said the model is 1090 cm (over 30 ft. tall!)

I have never used Meshlab before, so it's not clear what the units are set to- if it isn't cm. how do I change it? And if it is cm.- what do I do now?

Thanks for any help!

Cheers,
Doug

Hi all.
Complete noob here. Just downloaded sketchup a few days ago, and I've been playing with it. I have a specific project in mind, and I assume sketchup can do it, I just don't know how.

I want to make a steel pendant about an inch square (25mm x 25mm x ~3mm) with a QR code on it, with the black parts being recessed about 1-1.5mm. I have the code, and I can extract either the white data or the black data, but then I can only paste it onto the 25 x 25 x 3mm object as a skin.

Is there any way in sketchup turn that 2d image 3d without having to hand-create each cube and join them together? If not, what about Blender?

Thanks in advance.

Did any one here ever try to print a full collor sandstone object from Autodesk Inventor?
I have a collored object in inventor but as far i can see Autodesk Inventor 2009 doesnt save files as VRML or X3D.

I only know how to work with inventor so it would be difficult and a lot of work if i need to open the object in a other program and then put colors on it (again)

But i cant undo, let's say i'm in rapair mode, and delate a triangle.
If i then undo, it undos the rapair mode, and my part is gone.

I'm relatively new to Rhino so excuse me if I get some terminology wrong....
A friend of mine showed me some models created using Curves and/or Nurbs. As he created them I could see the surface looked nice and smooth but the wall thickness was almost nothing.

My question is would a model created like this run into problems when it came time to printing it (it would upload okay, though?) because of the thinness of the wall?

Secondly, how does one get around that? By turning the model into a mesh object?

Is there a way of "thickening" the wall of a model created with Curves, Nurbs and whatever else in Rhino?

Hi,

When I first discovered Shapeways.com, I was excited! So simple
and transparent!

The only thing is, I'm not a die-hard 3D modeler.
I only use sketch-up for 3D modeling.

So. Naive as i was, I uploaded my first model. Than I got all kinds of errors, like non manifold erros etc. etc.

But After some learning, I found a pretty sure way for getting Sketch-up models printable:

This is how I did the job:

Perquisites

Google Sketchup 7:
http://sketchup.google.com/download/gsu.html
and Cadspan Plugin.
http://www.cadspan.com/tools

MiniMagics:
http://www.materialise.com/MiniMagics

Accutrans:
http://www.micromouse.ca/downloads.html


Step 1
Create model in sketchup (work in mm) and use CADspan plugin to generate stl file.
(Follow instructions on CADspan website)
(Settings: Highest Gap fill & resolution).

Step2
Check stl file in miniMagics. This software is also used by shapeways (I think). On the right pane it says "how to fix my part"
If your model is ok than a green sign is showed.

Final step
Scale the model in accutrans and export as Collada
To do so select "Save with options":
-file type Collada
-uncheck quads
-next to "OSF set to" type 0.0254
-press "OSF set to" button to scale the model

Than check your dimensions! (Accutrans uses meters)

and press save to save in collada format.


That's it!



Edit: In the mean time I found out about the STL4SU plugin. I prefer that. It works a lot easier than the cad-span plugin!)

If you use Wings3D (and I haven't seen many people mention it here) then you are likely aware of how difficult it is to scale to an exact size. I have uploaded a model to test this and have found that one square on the Wings3D grid equals 2.5cm.

When uploading to Shapeways you must check off the scaling size as inches, NOT millimetres.

You can see the test model here.

Well, I've been checking around, trying to move my computing from my desktop PC to my new laptop Mac. I'm trying to convert my desktop to a Linux Homeserver, which means losing my 3D software... ugh! I have played with Blender, not that thrilled, and I've checked into a few others.

I ended up going with Silo!
It's from Nevercenter, affordable, has strict polygonal / CAD styled modeling and zbrush-ish style modeling. I've already began taking the tutorials... Yippeee! I hope to start modeling soon and get back on track.

I also start my iPhone dev class last night. Last semester was Objective C classes, now it's iPhone! (so I need a homeserver for my apps to talk with, hence the conversion process)

Anyway, just sharing... peace!

When exporting any model with 3D text in it from XSI 7.0 You will get an inverted normals error from shapeways. After hours of maddening troubleshooting, I decided to try exporting from a previous version (5.11) Surprisingly, this worked. There is some glitch or bug in XSI 7.0 that creates problems when exporting a model containing 3D text. Normally, previous versions of XSI wont allow you to open scenes from current versions, however I have found a workaround.

1. Open the scene in the current version of XSI
2. Use crosswalk to export as collada 1.4.1
3. Open the exported file in a previous version of XSI.
4. Export as collada 1.4.0 from the previous version
This file should be accepted by shapeways. (If you still have a problem, it is most likely not related to the text.)

You will most likely get an error that the model is too large. Drastically scale it to a very small on screen size and re-export from soft image. Do this until you have the size you want.

As a final note, I am not sure whether the problem is with XSI 7.0 or Collada 1.4.1. It could be a combination of both.

I've got a very simple 3d model in AutoCAD 2007. Just a closed polyline extruded straight up. I've tried several times to upload it, and keep getting the same error message:

Here's the error message; it may help you determine what went wrong: The fileformat of your object cannot be processed by our software. Please investigate the problem and try again.

I've gotten one file to be accepted by your system (3rd attempt), but it was too large and out of my budget to print. I scaled it down to a more affordable size, but have been unable to get your system to accept it in its scaled down form. I've tried simply scaling down the model that I was able to successfully upload, I've tried scaling down the original polyline and re-extruding, and I've tried re-drawing the entire thing at the smaller scale and extruding that, all with the same error message.

I know you're willing to convert for me, but I'd really like to master doing it myself so I don't have to bother you with it. Has anybody else experienced problems exporting .stl files from AutoCAD 2007? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

edit: I think I may have discovered the problem...I've got filleted corners on my object, and I think AutoCAD is screwing up the exact location of the intersection between the arc and the line. If I explode my 3d solid into lines and try to re-covert to a polyline, it breaks at the transition from stright line to arc in the filleted corners. I'll keep playing with it and see if I can figure out how to make it stop doing that.

Hi all,

Current design student at GT with a ring assignment, final print must be metal. Could I get some thoughts on the viability of the mechanism? Shapeways says it passed only raw silver/brass/bronze, which I understand means it will be printed in wax, molded in plaster, then cast in the final material . I intend to tab the slide to one end of the slot on the final rev.

Can I get an amen?

RING KARYSTOS STONE

"As a young kid I remember that my father always liked to decorate all our cottages which have lived in with that kind of stone.

I like this kind of pattern also (It is a voronoi pattern actually) so I have deciced to design a ring with Karystos Stones which I am pretty sure that many of you will love It's simplicity and uniqueness."

I've been trying to create something with words for a change. Ended up with something rather simple, but wonder what people think about the idea.
The idea would be that it can be generated from any text, but this will still need a bit of manual adjustment.

This is one possibility...

Here is a love pendant I have been working on and plan on buying soon; it is a symbol of how much love makes you crazy cause we all can relate to that. I added the new customization to the model as well.

Hi,

https://www.shapeways.com/shops/amalham?sort=newest&sect ion=Bracelets-metals&s=0

I have 500+ similar bracelets already and if you want buy similar items in needed size, form and ornament - please, not hesitate ask me, it's free. I will create models in similar form, with one of 150+ my own ornaments for free and place it for sale on my Shapeways shop. Most of my bracelets will costs about $100-150 in polished silver.

New bracelet will created for your size and optimized for low cost (will not scaled from current model). At present time I am not ready to place all my huge collection of bracelets here because you (as buyer) not able scale it to needed size and uploading process will too long story also.

Also I finished my new solid ring/bracelet creator and ready make models for free also. Several such solid bracelets already in my shops. Customizable (via CustomMaker) bracelets coming soon.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Panguver, shop owner.

PS. If you want order and resale it locally, I am ready to give you all needed rights.
