Help! When i click preview after changing the filenames it just makes the base taller!

aye look I tried to customize it myself but it made me dizzy can I pay you to put it in a different text, please.

hi i was wondering if the rebel empire stl needed supports and if so how to get them off

It will be a real challenge to print on an extrusion printer.

Supports will probably be essential. They can usually be cut off with a knife.

Can you make this customizable?

See two comments down

Ok, I know about the script. But all I get is a rectangle. So just make this customizable.

I assume the rectangle you are seeing is the base and you perhaps haven't loaded in the dxf files.

Make sure you have all the files provided in the same folder. i.e. the script, yes.dxf and no.dxf
Run the script
If it produces just a rectangle then try commenting out the code that makes the base to confirm that's what it is.
If you still can't make the example work then I would not be able to help too much because I don't have any of the software any more.

If you get the example running then try making your own .dxf files of whatever you want and tweak the script till you are happy with the result.

Good luck.

Still confused. I give up. Completely.

Can I change the text?

Yes. You can make anything from two images so it doesn't even have to be text. Check the description for full instructions.

I am a professional magician and I would really love to have one that says magic - illusion. If that would be possible I would really appreciate it!

There is a script that will generate the model for you. You can make it say anything you want.

You might want to edit the final model using some modelling software so it looks good.

So, I put my dxfs in and it still just is a yellow square. Any tips?

Got the same thing too.
Using the other option that is right beside the option you were using just puts a rectangle.

your video was deleted

i can't seem to make it work for other dxf files :/ i made my own. how the alignment work? thanks. this is really amazing.

The script just calculates the overlap of two extruded solids. You need to use a 3D modelling package to trim out extra bits to make it look good.

Your inspiration is the work of Markus Raetz. If only the youtube video tell the name instead of just nothing.
