Author: Baha Abu Nojaim Category: Latest News

Happy new year everyone! How about a new MakePrintable UX-UI that repairs your Mesh faster, and simpler?

We are delighted to announce an update that should make your experience using MakePrintable much smoother! We’ve been hard at work improving our auto mesh repair process, updating the UI, enhancing the workflow, and SPEEDING UP the process!

Here’re some more details

More integrations:

If you haven’t noticed already! we have added some integrations that will allow you to import your 3D files easily from anywhere, we have Thingiverse, Google Drive and Box to simplify the way you fix your 3D files and speed the process for you.

Performance enhancements:

The Mesh auto repair process is now much faster in handling your files with increased speed that can reach up to 5X.

Improved fixer:

We’ve enhanced the triangulation of the fixer, removed the issues that cause spikes and cleaned the output.

Revamped workflow:

We’ve been looking for ways to improve our workflow and simplify it; we wanted to give you the best out of it so we thought that we should make the viewer larger with no scrolling required. We had also managed to reduce one of the steps, in efforts to save more time.
