A Quick guide to Mammoth
We wanted to share a quick guide to best practices for our latest mesh repair algorithm, Mammoth.
1.Quality: Prototype vs High
Use Prototype mode for blocky models that have little to no details. Your repair and optimization process will take half the time as it would using High mode. For highly detailed models, always use High mode.
2. Polygon Optimization:
Use the sliding scale to increase or decrease the polygon count based upon your preference for file size and a number of details.
Set parameters (in millimeters) to resize your model to the actual scale you prefer for printing.
Use the slider to increase the clearance value (in millimeters) to close small holes and gaps in your model.
Hollow your model to reduce the cost of printing. Use the slider determine your preferred thickness of the model’s shell (in millimeters). The more you decrease the hollowing value, the more you will save on printing!
7. Multiple Parts:
If your model contains multiple individual parts, we recommend repairing and optimizing each one separately to maintain a higher resolution. If you are unable to do so, try to position them close to each other as this may also help maintain resolution.
8. Wall Thickness Adjustment:
Using the slider to adjust the wall thickness value (in millimeters) will enlarge the model. Do not adjust the thickness value unless you want to enlarge your model. Areas with zero-thickness will automatically be thickened during the repair and optimization process, even with 0 adjustment value.
