Portabee Source

that is part of an ongoing community effort to bring 3D printing into fruition worldwide.

The Portabee is of RepRap heritage, meaning that a sizeable percentage of its own parts are printable, and is to some degreeself-replicating.

Here are the STL source files for the core Portabee parts.

We encourage you to use this source code to produce spares for your Portabee.

Please also modify and build upon this source code as you see fit to make Portabee and 3D printing even more awesome.

Warcraft Illidan

What game heroes would you like to see at gambody?

This 3D model consists of files inStereoLithography (.Stl)format that have been optimized for 3D printing.

Before printing the files, we strongly recommend reading thePRINTING DETAILSsection.

Version 1 and Version 2 are the files for Warcraft Illidan 3D Model model optimized for 3D printing, the preview pictures of which you see above.

Betrayer… In truth, it was I who was betrayed.

Still, I am hunted. Still, I am hated.

Now, my blind eyes see what others cannot: that sometimes the hand of fate must be forced!

Now go forth… unleash the tides of Doom… Upon all those…who would oppose us.

We will not betray the great lordIllidan. Better meet him with all honors onGambody Marketplace!

Illidan Stormrageis a night elf which born as Demon Hunter and the founder of the Illidari. Unusually gifted sorcerer, the extent of his powers became difficult to classify due to his powers increasing in large bursts and his having absorbed the powers of Skull of Guldan. The owner ofTwinBlades of Azzinoth, made by the blacksmiths of the Burning Legion especially for the commander-in-chief of the army of demons. His pursuit of arcane mastery led him to commit horrific acts against his own people and the races of Azeroth. For his actions, he was imprisoned for ten thousand years, until his release during the Third War.

After his release from prison, he went through many obstacles and now appeared before you in the guise of amodel for 3D printing.

The inspiration for making this model came after reading his story about the acquisition of Skull of Guldan.

One of the nice things its his tattoos that are made in the form of scars on the body, so that it would be easier to paint them and give your Illidan a truly demonic form. The set includes hands withThe Twin Blades of Azzinoth, but you can also replace them with normal hands and chain. You can combine and put the blade in one hand and chain into another. Or wrap the chain around the rock and let the Illidan hold it in another hand. By the way, as for all parts of this model, special connector was made for wings which doesnt require glue for their fastening! And for your attention two platforms are presented that are empty inside and modeled in the form of a rock:

The first platform is just a stand that economy your filament.

The second platform is bigger than the first. It made as a composition with skulls, for those who love impressive models.

You will never regret that you bought this model onGambody Marketplace.

FDM versioncontain changeable weapon, hands, chains and made in large size.

SLS versionless thenFDMand made as one part, for economy your material.

All.STL files for 3D printinghave been checked for errors and corrected inNetfabb.

Note:Before starting3D printing the model, read thePrinting Details forCURA 2.7.0.software.

There are 18 parts for FDM version and only 1 part for SLS.

All parts of the joints should be printed at100% infill.

Building Windows Store apps with C++ (archived)

I am writing an 3d printing app. I have an 3d model STL file which I need to print with 3d printer. Can anyone help me out with printing the STL files ?

Could this be a good tutorial:Quickstart: 3D printing.By the way,3D Print Sampleis a good start to be a demo.

3D Manufacturing Format (3MF) is the correct format to be printed, Im not familiar with STL file, and how to translate it to 3MF.

It is a common way to recognize those who have helped you, and makes it easier for other visitors to find the resolution later.

So your question could be how to load STL file into the app?

It is a common way to recognize those who have helped you, and makes it easier for other visitors to find the resolution later.

Yes, and then convert the stl file into 3mf format to print it

Probably your question is out of my knowledge scope, but you can always get support by following channel:

Get started with theQuickstart Guidefor 3D printing in Windows 8.1

Get theSDK for Windows 8.1Development Tools.

Check out the Windows 8.13D Printing Sample.

Learn more on theWindows Dev Center.

I cannot find more information from MSDN documentation except those two article. But as I know STL format is kind of below (ref from

facet normal ni nj nk outer loop vertex v1x v1y v1z vertex v2x v2y v2z vertex v3x v3y v3z endloop endfacet

UINT8[80] Header UINT32 Number of triangles foreach triangle REAL32[3] Normal vector REAL32[3] Vertex 1 REAL32[3] Vertex 2 REAL32[3] Vertex 3 UINT16 Attribute byte count end

However 3MF is a kind of XML format, Im afraid you have to write your own code to convert, or to find some third party code for helping.

CAD File Formats and How to Export Them for 3D Printing

There are a lot of CAD (computer-aided design) file types out there, each with their own names, formats, and parameters. From STEP files, to STL files, to IGES, and more, it can be difficult to differentiate between them all. This post will help you understand the difference between these file types, and which file is best for uploading to a 3D printer or 3D printing service.

Before we review the steps for CAD file preparation for 3D printing, heres a brief overview of different CAD model types.

One very basic way to distinguish between CAD models types is by breaking it into these two groups:

A parametric model is one which consists of solid blocks or vectors that have both magnitude and direction. A mesh model, on the other hand, is a collection of small triangles that make up a surface.

If you compare these two types of models to a 2D image file, a parametric model is like a vector file (.AI, .SVG, .DXF) while a mesh model is most similar to a pixel image (.PNG, .JPEG).

Just as a pixel image (.PNG) approximates a vector file (.AI), when converting a parametric model to a mesh model, a mesh file (.STL) approximates a parametric file (.STEP).

Pro Tip:If youre looking for an in depth read about mesh modeling vs solid modeling, check outthis article.

Now lets dive into how you can prepare and export your CAD models for 3D printing and which file types we recommend.

There are 3 main file types used in 3D printing:

IGES or IGS (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification)

STL (Stereolithography or Standard Tessellation Language)

STEP (Standard for the Exchange of Product model data)

This file type was created by the US Air Force and was used for exchanging CAD geometry. It was later adopted by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

Main thing to know about this file type is its an older, unsupported specification so it will never be updated or changed. Hence, why this is the third best choice for 3D printing files.

STLs were originally developed by 3D Systems specifically for additive manufacturing and are widely known as the industry standard. However, STL files have several shortcomings. For example, theres no associated units and holes or gaps (watertightness) can cause issues when producing parts.

There are 2 main types of STEP files:

In our opinion, STEP files are the best file format for transferring CAD data. STEP files carry all of the parametric data required so manufacturers can easily read the size and geometry of the part you need.

Pro Tip:STEP AP214 will save the colors and layers in your CAD program when exporting as an STL. When saving formultimaterial prints, we prefer this standard since it helps to distinguish the different solid bodies.

Its easy to run into problems when exporting an STL file. Since a lot of people do use STLs were going to point out a few important considerations and then walk through specific exportation steps for the most common CAD programs.

The most important consideration to take into account here is the resolution of your model. If you try to export an STL with a low resolution, your model will look faceted and if you export an STL with too high of a resolution, your model will become very large and difficult to share.

There are two main settings to consider with every CAD program:

This is the maximum distance between the surface of the original design and the surface of the STL triangle created.

This is the allowable deviation between adjacent triangles. You should think about approximating a curved surface with lots of flat triangles; the more shallow the angle, the closer the approximation is to the curved surface.

Set Deviation to 0.0005in and the Angle to 5 deg

Click the Options button, and choose the High detail level

Select Detail Controls from Mesh Options

Set Max Angle to 20, Max aspect ratio to 6, and Min edge Length to 0.0001
