Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing for export, part of 3D Scanning with a Camera.
- This chapter focuses on the final steps we need…to complete in order to buy a 3D print from Shapeways.…In this video we'll erase the back…of our Mesh and export it.…When we create Mesh files for 3D printing…they need to be water tight.…ie, a complete surface with no holes.…So this next step might seem…a little counter intuitive but bear with me.…Lets orbit to the back of the lion…using that Center mouse button.…We're going to use the Select tool and the brush.…
I'm going to paint a circle here on the back.…Under Modify you can see we…have this option to smooth the boundary,…you can also use the hotkey B,…and see we get a preview of this blue line here.…We can adjust that preview to get it a little smoother.…And then I'll choose Accept.…And I can hit X to delete those faces.…
Now that's one option.…The other option is to delete the whole back face.…And you can see that this is kind…of this highlighted green color,…and that's not in my model.…That's a face group.…If you don't see the green color…hit the spacebar to bring up the hotbox,…
