Wow, this works really well!  Even on my Makerbot with an Automated Build Platform

Thank you. I tried to design so that it would work on as many printers as possible. :)

nice print, TheCase

The .STL would be smaller if they were saved as binary STL instead of ASCII.

the export plug in for Google Sketchup wrote as ASCII. When I centered it in Replicator G, it still came out as ASCII.

Do you know how to convert it to binary?


Run it through cloud.netfabb and you get it cleaned up and in binary. I just run everything through cloud.netfabb now.

Thanks for the idea. 36.6 Mb ASCII became 2.42 binary. :)

thank you. I will have to try that. A friend mention netfabb a few months ago, but I forgot about it.

MeshLab can do it. Slic3r can do it. The Cura project planner too, but it also reduces the resolution. Blender can do it (import an STL, select the object by right clicking, export STL).
