    [Solved] FBX Import not working

    Dismayed that this bug is still present - switching to English language didn't help. Don;t want to have to break flow to go to OBJ, it messes up scales

    The coming triumph of voxels?

    This would be game changing, have signed up to their updates :O

    Define Measurement Units and Edit Scene Scale

    This is a really important topic and it's a great disappointment it doesn't seem to be taken seriously
  4. Hi all! I have 'a' mesh with multiple subobjects / subtools / submeshes. I made use of zremesher for creating a low topology mesh. I then used UV master to unwrap it in Zbrush. For some reason two of the submeshes would not unwrap. I would like to use 3DCs UV tools to manually UV & unwrap these two submeshes whilst maintaining the other UVs. I've tried a bunch of import options, but the mesh won't even import to the sculpt room (shows up as 0 polys, - imports to Blender fine). Any help greatly appreciated.

    3D printing joint

    Hi @Oleg_Shapo, I scaled up so that the pieces are approximately 2cm according to 3DC scale. If I export as an stl using normal export it comes out fine: When I use the export for 3D printing menu it comes out like this: Are you sure the tool works as expected?

    The scale is preventing the export @Oleg_Shapo ? It's a slight issue as this is the correct real-world size that it needs to be printed at

    I saw you download @Oleg_Shapo, any luck seeing the issue?

    I left for over 5 minutes and nothing,nothing seems to be happening in 3DC either. Sending now @Oleg_Shapo

    3D printing joint

    Also @Oleg_Shapo, when I try export with the 'Export for 3D printing' item in the file menu, rather than the normal export item/menu, nothing seems to get exported. I get an almost empty file. Any advice? Recording #621.mp4

    3D printing joint

    A question @Oleg_Shapo, so I don't need to redo the joints, just export the exact same model with that setting off?

    Thank you Oleg! I will try

    3D printing joint

    In a recent print I tried out the 3DC joint creation tool to see if I was able to use it to connect pieces of my print together. I've attached some pics of the kind of joints I tried as this was the first time. The prints were done in nylon12 on an industrial printer by a bureau. Unfortunately none of the joints have any friction in them, if trying to attach the pieces they just fall off. I wonder if the print quality is too fine, - the joint tool is made for a lower print resolution (which will increase friction perhaps?) Would be great to get some tips if anyone has used the joint tool successfully.

    Maintaining scale in 3DC

    Also to add here for reference, importing to separate instances (where it is a multipart model) also seems to muck up scale

    Maintaining scale in 3DC

    So as a followup to this/ maintaining scale question (and I'm leaving this here as much for my own future reference as for anyone else) - if you import a model into 3Dcoat and want to maintain the export size & position & rotation the same as the imported model, you need to set the size and position and rotation of the model before applying, and then click the popup about maintaining export scale - any transformations after this point will affect the eventually exported model, so don't do it
