Editing Text in an STL File
July 25, 2015 01:29PM
I am new to 3D printing with a Lulzbot MIni.
I downloaded an STL file from Thingiverse (Luggage_label_Customizer_2013-11-01_1.stl). I would like to replace the generic name and address info on the model with my own info. I would even like to increase the tag size. I cannot figure out how do either of these tasks and would appreciate advice or direction to resources that could help me.
Thanks, Pat

Modifying the .stl file would be difficult.
Download the file with extension .scad
This is an OpenSCAD file. Download openSCAD ( a free program) and load this file.
Change text and save as new stl for printing.
