3D Print Terrain, solid, JointPushPull

Postby Jmlove » Thu Jun 05, 2014 12:39 pm

Hi Folks,

I am new to this forum, although using Sketchup for a while for simplier task I am now experience the use together with 3D-printing.

I have this attached file, surface generated from free painted terrain curves from a scanned in terrain JPG-file, repositioned to the right terrain height... we're talkin' x0000 of millimeters height.

I've red over and over that I need to make water tight solid for 3Dprinting and I have tried the Fred06 plugin JointPushPull as well as trying to connect the edges to a vertical z-plane to make a solid (straight lines down to a plane). The JointPushPull works but NOT when I want to move and make a plane bottom surface on the terrain (thickness with plane bottom), I end up with a "not valid argument fault". Is there something I need to do with my surface, clean up (if so what), connect lines...(?)

If someone can guide me further in any direction, and maybe also have a look at the file and make it with a meter of solid thickness with plane bottom, that would have been great!

Thanks!

Hi Johan, welcome to the forum!

sdmitch made a plugin that is handy for terrain: Add Terrain Skirt, which is the 2nd plugin in his post.

See the attached file, which was created in seconds with his plugin.

Perfect thank you, that worked like a charm... now I will try out to stamp my house and finally print!
