How can I ungroup stl parts so that I can modify the design how I want

Discussion started by artgemtech

Hi everybody,

I am new to this site....

I recently dowloaded a stl file but it is all in one part and i couldn't find a way to modify the design.

Any help please?

I currently work with 3Dbuilding free software.

Any suggestions ????\

Thank you all

Have a look into Mesh Mixer. It's free, it works with STL files, and you'll find plenty of videos on Youtube about how to edit STL files using it. If you aren't familiar with more pro-level software like Zbrush, Blender, or 3dCoat, then MeshMixer is a good solution.

If STL combined from several parts You can split it. If STL is healed solid and consists only one shell - You can not modify it by splitting. But You may select its surfaces, make them solid and then modify - it is not easy but possible. The better way to ask Seller to help You in modifying...
