I designed a microphone head as a prop, probably overly complicated and I want to print it on my FDM 3d printer. However, i need to merge two parts (mesh and head) before i can export to STL. i have tried on my 10.5 iPad pro from years ago and from my mac mini, but neither work, they seem to give up after a long while.
on my ipad selecting the mesh plus any other part take a long time.
the mesh was created by creating a line, lofting a circle along that path, and then copying that extrusion every 5 degree until i had a 120 degree sector.
the horizontal tubes were created by drawing a 1mm circle along the original lofting line and then revolving the external semi circle 120 deg. then I merged all these tubes and copied it twice for the other sectors and then merging the 3 sections. selecting the thirds was taking a while and even longer when selecting the mesh.
Are the parts actually contiguous enough to merge?
Can any of your computer do it?
