Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video 3D printing with Meshmixer, part of 3D Scanning with a Camera.
- In this video, we'll use Meshmixer's 3D printing tools…to prepare our model for printing…on a desktop 3D printer like on MakerBot.…To start, let's go to the Print option…at the bottom of our toolbar.…At the top here, you can choose…the brand of printer you're working with.…We are going to work with MakerBot Replicator 2.…There's a handful of other printers on this list.…But if your brand of printer isn't,…you can always choose Sample Printer…and then edit the printer properties…to add the specifics for your brand of printer.…
Right now we're previewing in PLA Translucent Green.…We'll keep this as is.…Our next step is that we need to transform.…Our object right now is actually…in a really good orientation.…The back is flat on the bottom of the print bed.…It's going to adhere really nicely.…If we wanted to make a change to the orientation,…we could flip the Rotate tab here…or we could use the gizmo to place it in space.…You can move it around either by dragging it…or use the Move options here.…
The only thing we need to do is resize this so it's bigger.…
