Matter controller keeps crashing when loading certain files



  • I am finding on files that say to big to render my matter controller crashes the matter control program, for instance one of them is the yodsta off of thingiverse also the same with beach girl nude on thingiverse. What can I do to allow it start printing these "larger" files



  • Larger files will do this to MatterControl, so you'll probably need to decimate the models before you try to use them on the Touch. You won't lose any visible resolution in the finished model as the extremely high polygon counts that account for such large file sizes are too complex for 3D printers to print anyway.

    Here's a link to a good tutorial using Meshlab to decimate: http://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/polygon_reducti...
