    Hello

    I would like to print some N-Scale Mechs from the Mechwarrior Universe that I found done up in STL, but the developer left it to the downloader to mirror the the Right Arm and Leg from the Left Side Parts. I don't have the software or the graphic experience to do such and I was wondering is there a tutorial (and associated free to use software) where one could make the changes I need to get this Mech and others like it printed

    Thank You

    Darryl.

    meshmixer does this I believe, its a free software designed to change STL files. Select the part, edit then mirror. Then you should be able to split into shells and export

    Downloaded the 3.3 version of meshmixer since the newest 3.5 did not like my laptop's windows 10 install. A few minutes of figuring the program out and I NOW have mirrored parts of the Mech. Again THANK YOU for the HELP, GREATLY Appreciated!!!
