Windows 10 little trinket of joy.

Wed Nov 11, 2015 9:08 am

hiya every one,

thought I'd share this.

If you are using Windows 10 and are like me, you may have ignored the 3D builder program that is included.

Now I have realised it's a handy little tool.

if you need to break up a .STL file then this will be a great help. (it does other things too)

I used it to break up a large part so it could fit into my build area. I just cut the pieces and then saved the left over piece. then adjusted the cut to leave another piece and saved etc...

worth a look

Becky

So, where does one find the program?

3d builder has also proven to be a pretty good STL repair utility. It took in a badly-"leaky" STL file of an extremely-high triangle count model and repaired it and optimized it to a sane number of triangles WITHOUT CRASHING. For a freebie, it is a very useful, solid tool!
