have you guys ever tried to use Meshlab to repair and polish OBJ files? Its awesome. I dont have a printer but it can be useful for fixing objects. I think it can read and write STLs and DAE too.

Wow! It's been a while! Good to see the Truespace community is still around :-)


I use Truespace 7.6 for all my 3D model printing needs. For me, it's just so much easier to use than other programs out there.

My workflow goes like this:

1. Model my 3D print in Truespace using inches. I leave the scene in Meters but use inch measurements as if they were meters.
2. I made a 'inches to millimeters' conversion button for my Stream Deck. Makes model size conversion real easy.
3. Export as .stl
4. Import into Cura
5. Print away!

I print on a couple of Ender 5 pro's and an Ender 5 Plus. It's a fun hobby!
