3D Printing 101 with Simplify3D and Separate Connected Surfaces

OH GEESH. I’m traveling and after uploading this, and then checking my YouTube subscriptions, I see Angus at Maker’s Muse just covered this as well. Dang it. Well, make sure you watch HIS video please:


If you have a model that isn’t fully baked, you can use Simplify3D to separate the model in separate meshes, then, Simplify3D will combine the meshes the correct way and make the model fit for 3d printing.
