Having trouble connecting with proper splinage

Recommended Posts

connecting with proper splinage

 

Anyone care to take a stab at it?

 

Unfortunately you can not just lay the 2 pieces next to the hinge because the maker bot rep 2 will not print them correctly. For the most part makerbot seems to need most things to be splinedproperly in Am.

The primary problem I see is that the center object has parts that are only one patch thick.

The secondary problem is that parts of the object aren't closed.

It's easy enough to close the ends but we'd need to know what your target is in order to finish the piece.

 

Are the two rectangles off to the side suppose to be part of (attached to) the hinge?

(Didn't see Robert's post... I'm sure he's provided a proper solution)

 

Attached is my attempt to reconcile your trouble.

Replaced my model with a project file that has a new model in it.

I've added Robert's model (locked) beside mine as a general reference.

It appears we were following the same approach.

 

My greater concern at this point would be how the Makerbot/STL conversion deals with internal and 5 point patches.

Thank you so much Robert and Rodney

 

My wife went into labor after I made this post. So with the new baby I was not able to comment until now.
