I’m running into a funny problem;
I prepared a mesh model for 3d printing, quite a complex model, a lot of detail, etc… I manually had to fix some naked/non-manifold edges, which worked out nicely, now I´ve got a nice mesh, but also one problem: I meshed the whole thing in my modeling scale (1:1 drawn in cm), the 3d print is going to be 1:100. So basically i need to transform the model only by 1/10 (100cm (drawing units) = 10mm (when opening the stl as mm)). Scaling the model up or down I always get problems with my mesh edges again (non-manifold edges), I guess because of tolerance issues. Moving the model into Netfabb I can scale it (I guess netfab doesnt work with “real” units), but somehow I`m reluctant to do that, because I dont really know what happens with the mesh in netfab. So basically I just need to take a zero away from my model scale, but without actually changing its size…Any ideas on that?
