.stl painting multi color!

Post by Hutch » 06 Jul 2019, 00:35

Pretty sweet paint tool on the main site for premium.
Using a tool from Mosaic, 'paint' the desired extruder onto the triangle mesh! (This feature works already!)

Here's an example of FacePainter + KISS:

Hello. Im aware of the new software features of the mosaic palette, But Im not seeing clearly how we can benefit from it here. I have loaded a STL and paint it. I can see what I paint it in the STL preview in kisslicer, but in the mesh wondows I cant see any new meshe created (atached is a screenshot). After painting the stl in the software, it should create new meshes?

No. You "paint" with the extruder.

In this above, red prints with extruder 1, orange with extruder 2, yellow with extruder 3, green with extruder 4 and blue with extruder 5.

Each painted triangle is 2D with no depth. KISS takes the model which is still a single mesh and determines the 3D coordinates of the 2D "painted" triangles.

How do I assign a extruder in the model if new messhes are not created? look at my screenshot: in the small preview you can see that the model has been painted, but no new mesh was created, so how do I assign the painted area to a particular extruder in kiss?

Your model is a single mesh. Why would FacePainter create new meshes?

Your STL file is defining a single mesh. That mesh is made up of thousands of triangles. The STL file simply contains the coordinates of every triangle in the mesh, but there is also a spare field defined for each triangle. This spare field is amended within FacePainter to define the extruder for KISS to assign to that triangle.

After using FacePainter, you must not try to assign an extruder to the mesh within KISS; this is already assigned within the STL.
