Rounds are no longer round

Postby Irish Archer » Tue Nov 20, 2018 7:21 pm

ideaMaker Ver. 3.3.02343

I have never had this issue previous to this last update of ideaMaker.

I have tried various changes to my STL file output setting in Inventor, with no change.

Have you tried to view the model with Wireframe enables? Would you like to share pictures with that?

I provided the wire frame you asked for.
The first was a slice preview. the second for which i turned the wire frame on for also looked the same as the original.

I have tried another template and the model appear correct in the slice preview, meaning some setting is causing this issue.

With SolidWorks, a more advanced modeling software than Inventor, the output has a option controls for resolution tolerance, type, UoM, and etc. Perhaps Inventor has a setting that is file specific?

You can adjust amount of vectors faces also.

Are both templates built in ideaMaker? If so, you can compare the difference between them in ideaMaker.
