Re: Imagine 3D for 3D printing

Hello, thank you very much for the insight and suggestion. I downloaded AccuTrans demo version.

It opened Imagine3D object without trouble as can be seen here: https://postimg.org/image/iku09zyb9/

I then proceeded to save the object in .STL format (ascii) and tried to load it into Cura 12 printer software: https://postimg.org/image/6vq0m1uhx/

So this was the very first attempt without doing anything else than just opening and saving the Imagine3D object file in relevant software and relevant file format.

The open issues would be

1 How to open the object file correctly in printer software.
2 How to give the object accurate dimensions for printing.

I suppose these issues can be solved with a bit of studying and testing software features. There may exist some other generic printer software that can be tested as well.

As I have no physical printer available yet my idea was to produce the finished output file and send it to a printer service and later receive the printed item in the mail.
