MeshLab

MeshLab
MeshLab is an open source, portable, and extensible system for the processing and editing of unstructured 3D triangular meshes. The system is aimed to help the processing of the typical not-so-small unstructured models arising in 3D scanning, providing a set of tools for editing, cleaning, healing, inspecting, rendering and converting this kind of meshes. The system is heavily based on the VCG library developed at the Visual Computing Lab of ISTI - CNR, for all the core mesh processing tasks and it is available for Windows, MacOSX, and Linux. . The MeshLab system started in late 2005 as a part of the FGT course of the Computer Science department of University of Pisa and most of the code (~15k lines) of the first versions was written by a handful of willing students. The following years FGT students have continued to work to this project implementing more and more features. The proud MeshLab developers are listed here.

Its compact size of only a few megabytes allows a quick download, an easy installation and the handling of STL and slice files within seconds.

Automatically clearing the bed and starting the next print (Videos+Instructions) - Fully automated production! So when visiting the huge CNC shop where they build my hotends I saw an awesome auto-feed lathe that you load up with bar stock, it turns a workpiece, parts it off whereupon it falls into a little chute, and it then pops out the back of the lathe into a little basket for collection. The guy running the machine shop says he just fills the machine, presses "go" and goes home for the night! Well, I had massive engineering jealously right there. If he could do it, then why not me on my little RepRap?! Another motivation was that as well as running E3D with David I am also a full time teacher of Engineering at a high school.

Belts and stuff: experiences to share. We are finally back with an insanely long Blog Update! With the FABtotum Personal Fabricator we went through a series of experiences in designing a proper belt system, and we thought it might be cool to share this experience. Some designs spawned several prototypes, some of those where a step forward, other a failure, but all helped us progress to today’s development stage. heekscad - Free CAD based on Open CASCADE There is a fork of HeeksCAD at However, I have been working on this Google Code version quite a lot, recently. I have gone back to my older undo code and HeeksCAD is now quicker and easier for me to understand. STL Volume Weight Calculator In two lines: Vital stats for 3D printing objects. Quickly estimate the cost of printing your 3D object! What is STL ? .STL is a file format that is popularly used for representing 3D object information for 3D printing applications.
