3d printing

I've been searching around but have only found 1 unanswered reference to exporting SH3D plans to a 3d printable format.

Is there more information on this I am missing? On a futures/request list?

Thanks!
Mike

Re: 3d printing

The only format that SH3D can export is OBJ. If that format cannot be used directly to make a 3D print, you might want to look for a conversion program online.

Use this search phrase:
"how to convert obj format for 3d printer"
And you will find relevant information.

Re: 3d printing

thanks!

I've been researching that already, was just wondering of any "native" support.

Thanks for the reply and a great program!

Re: 3d printing

The file format is the smallest of the problems for 3d printing an SH3D project. The most important one are the thin walls! If you scale the object down to fit on a 3d printer, the walls are that thin, they can not be printed anymore...

Re: 3d printing

Can you recommend a wall thickness that might scale down OK?

Like just make the 3feet thick in the app or somehow "fill in" the interior so it is solid?

I don't want to model the interior really...just have a model of the outside of my house.

Re: 3d printing

I haven't tried it yet. The effort to adapt my projects is too high for me.

Re: 3d printing

Oh yeah! Perhaps one of the smaller ones could be modified with less effort.

Man, this could be a relatively easy solution. Especially for a only rectangular house.
We can fill the whole house with a box or with boxes. You just have to align them exactly to the outer perimeters of every glas (windows, glas doors...).

Thanks for this idea, I will try this in the future (maybe in the near future thanks to corona...).
