Hi there, I’m new to 3d printing and just got my first 3d printer last week (luzlbot mini). I like to know if anyone here uses Modo for modeling and printing with Cura. My questions:
1: How do I get the exact size of my model from Modo to Cura when I export from Modo to STL file?
Currently, I have to rescale the model size in Cura, it’s not much of a problem but I would like to eliminate this step.
2: Is there a video tutorial that shows the basics and advance use of Cura online?
Thanks for your help!
Is there a native unit that Modo uses? I use Maya and I think it either used inches or centimeters as it’s native unit. I ended up switching it to milimeters under the preferences menu, and that helped me get closer to the sizing I needed.
I was dealing with a similar issue, though I always tend to check my models in 123-D to get proper sizing. Measure twice print once, maybe?
Hope this helped
I found the solution. It’s a setting in Modo where you have to specify the output measurement of an STL file. There is a video tutorial for this and I’m posting it here for future Modo users.
