Printing your 3D model has never been easier with MeshMixer! This week, in Sculpteo’s series of free online tutorials for 3D printing, we’re happy to announce our latest: MeshMixer tutorial!


Whether you are a professional or a non-professional designer, if you’re looking for a great tool to make your 3D models printable, MeshMixer tutorial is for you.

This free and indispensable 3D printing modeling software not only allows you to easily design your own creations by combining already existing models (mesh mixing), coloring and sculpting them like virtual clay, but also it is particularly useful to correct files designed for 3D printing.

The Meshmixer tutorial provides an overview of the essential information required to model, correct and export an object for 3D printing using this software.

Its first part explains the best modeling practices when starting from scratch for a 3D print. You’ll learn how to create a model using mesh combinations and how to make them printable using the Make Solid tool. You’ll also learn how to color your model in order to make full color 3D prints.

The second part of the tutorial explains how to optimally export your 3D file for 3D printing. You’ll learn how to upload your 3D file directly to Sculpteo and 3D print it using the MeshMixer interface.

The third and final part explains how to repair other models for a 3D print or correct any modeling errors you may have in your 3D file in order to make it printable. You’ll see how simple it is to correct your file for 3D printing using MeshMixer tools!
