It seems as if I have a possible good, or at least significantly better part in my 10 minute soak now. Finally some encouragement.
I will post photos later. Going to bed now.
Also if some of you use Solidworks to make your items like I do, and you were having some scaling (size) issues I will have a post for that sometime this week. THAT was another issue I was dealing with.
Do you have size export issues as obj filles too? PreForm does import both well.
You can also scale the model in PreForm. I do that with anything made in 3dCoat since it isn’t precise when exporting.
I have not used the obj format. In the 20ish file options in Soldiworks obj is not 1 of them. I have no interest in generstng files in other programs.
Was just curious if it is an I/O bug in Solidworks with that particular format.
In any case you should be able to resize the model in PreForm.
I think the issue might have been my old XP tower running Solidworks 2008. Once I started using my WIN7 Pro tower and SW 2012 the sizing issues have not been a problem.
