If I wanted to import say a blueprint, and only cut the outside border, ignoring the internal walls, would the included software be able to do this? Or would I need to “hollow” my design until all that remains is the exterior border before cutting it from a sheet of whatever material I chose.
What software is best used to take a 3D model and then “slice” it into layers. I have tried 123MAKE but it doesn’t seem to work properly and seems extremely basic. It slices the original model but then when I change the thickness of the layers for more detail, the displayed model stays the same.
Obviously I am new to this whole designing and making world, so any is appreciated.
I want to make scale models ultimately, scratch build them, using the slices as a skeleton and then building up with other material to get the final shape.
