Questions & Troubleshooting / Re: Sharp Inside Corner Cleanup
« on: February 10, 2018, 06:30:45 AM »

If you are looking at RE and editing meshes I hear lots of good things about Spaceclaim - with the ''STL Prep'' module I think it's about one third the price of Design X.

I have tested it a few times and for instance fixing STL meshes that I couldn't really fix anywhere else were fixed fast and great. I tried a shrinkwrap/make solid tool. But there are also CAD design and RE tools of course.

Bug Reports / Re: Centering a model
« on: January 27, 2018, 08:11:49 AM »
Thanks MagWeb you have done it again, it works!  ;D

The first option you said does EXACTLY what I need and the same as the old version when you clicked print - it get my model to the center on the platform.

I also tried the bunny, I saw you helped somebody else in a thread with the same suggestion. It took a while but that did work, so the bunny got packed/aligned the same. But other models take a lot of time and didn't get centered.

But that doesn't matter to me now, I will use the suggestion you made with EDIT/Align from now on.

Thanks again!

Bug Reports / Centering a model
« on: January 21, 2018, 03:14:03 PM »
I have a question that might be a bug report but I'm never sure with Meshmixer as it isn't always intuitive (I do love it by the way!).

I still use an old version of MM as I almost daily use it to arange 3D models - I want to center them all the same to make working with them more easy.

In version number 10.10.170 (version 2.7 maybe?) when I would click the print icon it would instantly center my model on the build platform.

I have downloaded and tested lots of versipns since but the print tool has changed, I see also a packing tool but this takes ages and doesn't work for me. I doesn't place the models dead center flat on the origin:

Nice, thanks! I had an older version installed as I use the automatic centering of the model under Print very often.

How do I do this now, is this the packing tool? That isn't working for me in this version, it takes very long and doesn't center the model. In the old program the model would be automatically set in the middle on the build platform which was ideal and very fast by the way.. Can I get this back somehow?

OK, thanks! I'll try that.  ;)

Questions & Troubleshooting / Viewing and editing inside a mesh
« on: January 10, 2018, 05:06:33 AM »

I couldn't find info on this and I have been trying to do this a few times over the years:

I have made a mesh hollow for 3D printing. Sometimes I add a hole on the bottom and sometimes not. How can I edit the inside surface. I would like to resculpt some parts but is there a way to change the view easily? The outside surfaces are in the way. I could maybe cut them and try to join them later but that seems too destructive..

Well Google has the answer  ;)

Found this:

And also this:

I hope that helps.

I am trying the Beta version, had one crash when I did a plane cut with Fixed fill, Remeshed fill didn't crash.

I use the (3D) Print screen a lot, this used to align my model in the center of a print bed and I could also scale and orient it there. I can not find any way to do this it's driving me crazy. There's a weird popup too with ''meshmixer'' and ''export'' that doesn't do anything when there are two (?). When clicked it does export but the popup screen looks odd.

Also when I open a model and MeshMixer starts the Z-Y isn't flipped. If I import something and have the option ticked it does work. I mainly 3D print so my MeshMixer Y axis is the Z axis for my models (height), can this be fixed?

How can I get a model to center now? So the origin I would like in the middle but the bottom of a model flat on a print bed.

That is nice news, thanks for reaching out and letting us know!
I hope Ryan/RMS is doing well and he will be missed  :-[

I hope to see an update soon and MeshMixer will be kept alive, it's such a great piece of software.

Well if Autodesk wants to continue development of MeshMixer I only know of one person who knows just about everything there is to know:


This forum and MeshMixer would be in great hands with him..

Oh no, I hope this is not sad news for MeshMixer. Thanks for all your hard work, you have left us with a wonderful gift, I enjoy using MeshMixer a lot.

Good luck with your new project!

Questions & Troubleshooting / Re: 123D apps

Still, I see MM isn't an 123D app anymore..  :-[
How come? I bought a Premium Autodesk subscription mainly for MeshMixer, what does this mean for my use of MeshMixer? I read somebody mentioning MM wil become part of Fusion360, is that true and what does that mean?

I have just seen the video of Maker's Muse that the latest beta (3.1.118) of MeshMixer has been improved a lot concerning the make Solid tool, have there been changes made like project Miller's awesome power? Or are there really settings I missed?

Video is here by the way, he does great and informative clips:
