Re: Chamfers are not exporting to STL file (sword project)

I tried the recommended Macro, results were inconclusive:

The single design on the right it worked for, the dual design on the left, it didn't.

Now I am very confused...... :?

Re: Chamfers are not exporting to STL file (sword project)

Thanks for the Macro recommendation.
Hopefully it will be useful for my next project.

I did try the Box Select tool, but it wasn't reliable, it only picked random isolated elements and not the entire sword/design.
So I won't be trying that again.

Re: Chamfers are not exporting to STL file (sword project)

So there isn't a function like Export Visible or Select Visible? I did manage to get a functional version (I hope!) by avoiding the base objects that got Chamfered. But for future reference, there should be a simpler way to do this then isolating the non-visible objects to avoid exporting them and I...

Re: Chamfers are not exporting to STL file (sword project)

I used Edit>Select All before exporting, because there are many shapes involved:

There is no Body function in this file/3D Model, so I am uncertain what is being referenced.

Chamfers are not exporting to STL file (sword project)

My second sword design has been completed and I am ready to upload it to the 3D printing server for production. However, when I exported the shape, the Chamfers were not included: DBSlCEF.png Since this process worked on the first sword: DBSnSwordCFS.png I am confused why it did not work for the sec...

This is the first sword design I referenced:

This isn't the final version of the first sword, I made some minor changes before it was print ready.

Re: How to precisely rotate a complex group of objects?

That does look like the desired result. But I can't find a function named Part Container in my version of the software. This is the only function I could find that is visually similar: DBSlSword02PBPrb01.png Unfortunately, it's rejecting the design: DBSlSword02PBPrb02.png It will only let me place o...

How to precisely rotate a complex group of objects?

I've completed my second sword design and now wish to rotate the entire object 90 degrees to one side so I can have a pair of them in preparation for 3D printing: DBSlSword02RtPrb.png I'm looking for a simple method similar to rotating an individual object, just grab the colored sphere and pull unti...

Re: Is it possible to Loft/Sweep Facebinders?

Jello papyblaise. The technique you showed me above gave me an idea for how to solve the problem: DBSnSwordCf01.png Thank you for the inspiration and solution. This is fairly close to the final appearance of the sword, now I just have to finish the fuel line and trim down the upper blade base. The u...

Is it possible to Loft/Sweep Facebinders?

Is it possible to Loft or Sweep these Facebinders to make them into a singular solid shape?

The program wouldn't perform the function with these objects, but I am wondering if there is a similar way to enact the same procedure with a different tool or function.
