Files created with Meshmixer are directly 3D Printable, and the different tools make it super easy to have your model printed
For 3D creators there’s exciting news from Sculpteo since users will now be able to leverage Autodesk Meshmixer as a 3D printing center for their 3D files. Autodesk Meshmixer is a free tool that makes it easier for users to modify, mashup, remix and repair design files for 3D printing.
Users of the previous Meshmixer version are already familiar with the 3D printing capabilities of the application and this direct-to-print feature has now been extended to online 3D services, letting you directly print your 3D models with Sculpteo. You can now import any of your 3D files to sculpt them, change their surface, add color and order 3D prints from within the interface. Like magic your file goes directly to your cart on Sculpteo.
Here are the different steps: open your file, prep it for print, upload via Sculpteo API, checkout, and wait a few days until you receive your print.
Like the previous version, this new release of Meshmixer includes powerful tools to help you get your 3D prints right:
- Use all the different pre-designed shapes
- Create new 3D models from a previous model that you have by sculpting it with different tools
- Modify your models and make them printable with powerful editing tools like the “Make Solid” tool
- Use a toolbox of brushes to paint your 3D model and then export it directly to Sculpteo to have it printed in color
- 3D print your models
- Native print support for MakerBot and Type A Machines, add/edit custom printers.
Sculpteo was the first 3D printing service integrated by Autodesk for the 123D apps family, beginning with 123D Creature.
Sculpteo enthusiastically supports this long and lasting partnership by being integrated in this latest release of Meshmixer. It lowers the barriers of entry to the 3D printing world even more. Files created with Meshmixer are directly 3D printable, and the different tools make it super easy to have your model printed with Sculpteo.
