Just found the address to my old robot wars building guide site… http://members.lycos.co.uk/igtbar/igtbar/ sadly the waybackmachine had only captured 2 images of this so i think this site is now lost forever 🙁 but yay i found the link
I attempted to open the tantillus stl file for top corner front left but sadly it failed in lic3r saying it had no slices or something, and Bill20r3 and teepee on IRC #Reprap explained about Admesh program.
A commad bassed programme, it fixes / translates rotates etc stl files.
bill20r3> admesh seems to have fixed it just fine, fwiw.
admesh is an open source program for repairing, translating and processing STL meshes. It’s very fast and almost as old as 3D printing. https://sites.google.com/a/varlog.com/www/admesh-htm
if this is down due to server issues go to:
admesh_0.95.orig.tar.gz 12-Oct-1998 20:52 50K file.
Roboteernat: bottom of the page https://sites.google.com/a/varlog.com/www/admesh-htm – the small arrow pointing down
download the file and save to desktop.
open command prompt window and change directory to point to admesh folder
save the broken stl file needed t be fixed ithin the admesh folder and confirm it id there by using cmd window and typing
'dir' to list the files in the directory
Once it is there, we can fx it.
admesh --write-binary-stl=file_admesh.stl file.stl
file_admesh.stl is the file output name
file.stl is the name of the file to be fixed
the file ‘Corner_top_front_left(1).stl has been fixed and saved as Top_corner.stl in the admesh folder.
All slicing fine now 😀
