    i need your help...
    i'm tryng to understand the site and all the process that will help me to print..
    but i have some doubt.

    when i export my stl file from 3ds and i open it with Netfabb studio i always get it worst and more "polygonal".. why?
    is there any option i need to check for a smoother surface?
    thabk you very much. :D

    When you model, set the object shader as a solid instead of
    smooth, this way you´ll see what you get when its printed.

    Objects will print as they are modelled. More polygons-> smoother surface.
    If you use sub-surface modifier, remember to apply it before exporting.
