Trying to make a decorative hinge pin in MatterControl

  • I can get the pin cylinder (53 mm high by 7.8mm diameter) drawn easily and also the exported .stl file prints perfectly in Tough PLA but I want to put a spherical knob of 10mm diameter on top of the pin. I can't for the life of me get Matter Control to put the sphere on top of the pin and connect the two as a single drawing. A little help here would be nice.

    If you make the pin 53 - 5 = 48 mm high, you can:

    • align the sphere on top centered to the top of the pin
    • union the result and export

    Here is a share code you can use to get the result that I made: NV9JRNGI

    You enter the code here:

    and the file will be in your 'Shared With Me' folder.

  • Thanks, I'll try that.
