## Close the "bottom hole" of a 3D-scanned bust

 I'm just a starter.I scanned my wife and obtained a bust.  The resulting STL after repairing has a hole viewed from the bottom.  Thick of it as a inverted bucket. I would like to close the bottom to facilitate printingg.  Please suggest how I can accomplish this in OpenSCAD?Thanks_______________________________________________ OpenSCAD mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.openscad.org/mailman/listinfo/discuss_lists.openscad.org

 Try :x=0;y=0;z=0;a=10;`import("myfile1.stl", convexity=5);translate([x,y,z])cube(a);`Move the cube around to fill the hole. Then export as stl.2016-05-21 0:23 GMT+02:00 Peter Falke :Share a picture.2016-05-19 15:18 GMT+02:00 William Ha : I'm just a starter.I scanned my wife and obtained a bust.  The resulting STL after repairing has a hole viewed from the bottom.  Thick of it as a inverted bucket. I would like to close the bottom to facilitate printingg.  Please suggest how I can accomplish this in OpenSCAD?Thanks_______________________________________________ OpenSCAD mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.openscad.org/mailman/listinfo/discuss_lists.openscad.org _______________________________________________ OpenSCAD mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.openscad.org/mailman/listinfo/discuss_lists.openscad.org

 I don't think you can do any CSG operations on a non-manifold STL in OpenScad.On 20 May 2016 at 23:29, Peter Falke wrote:Try :x=0;y=0;z=0;a=10;`import("myfile1.stl", convexity=5);translate([x,y,z])cube(a);`Move the cube around to fill the hole.
