Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video 3D printing your scan with a MakerBot, part of 3D Scanning with a Camera.
- In this video, we'll prepare our file for printing…with MakerBot Desktop.…Our model has already been transferred from Meshmixer.…It looks pretty good. Just be aware…that if you are using multiple 3D printers in one location,…you might have to change the device type…up here on the toolbar under Devices, Select Type of Device.…Just make sure that the correct one is checked.…Meshmixer doesn't always transfer that setting.…Under SETTINGS here, I'm going to choose…the Standard print settings.…
I think that that's a really good balance.…You can see that mess over text says,…"Sweet spot between speed and surface quality,"…and I would generally agree.…I'm going to turn off the Raft from my Replicator 2.…I print all the time directly onto the plate…and have a lot of success with that.…Because we auto-generated supports,…we definitely don't need the MakerBot generated supports.…I'll choose Save Settings. Now we're all ready to go.…I will choose EXPORT PRINT FILE…and wait for the preparation to finish.…
Once the processing is finished, we get an option…
