Meshmixer 3.1
« on: March 29, 2017, 11:56:19 AM »
Meshmixer 3.1 is now available! Download it here:

In this release we stabilized many core features, and eliminated crashes related to 123D. We're also very proud that Meshmixer 3.1 is fully translated into Japanese! In addition, Meshmixer installs faster, and now supports high-resolution displays.

Find all the details on the many other bug fixes in the full list of release notes below.

IMPORTANT: if you have ever enabled High-DPI Hack option in v3.0/beta on Windows (if you don't remember you probably haven't), please uncheck it in the old version before upgrading to Meshmixer 3.1.
