Asset Forge for 3D printing

My hobbies now shifted from gamedev to 3d printing and I must say Asset Forge can somewhat be used for making 3D printed models. 

However, you can't just export the whole obj file of your custom model because the final .obj model isnt optimized for 3D printing. (The individual blocks, by itself, are 3D printable)

What you can do if you want to 3d print your model, dissassemble it on AssetForge, export the dissassembled parts as a single obj file and export it to TinkerCad.

Separate the parts in TinkerCad (that's another story) and reassemble it there.

Export it as .stl file, slice it on your slicer and print it !!

Hey this is pretty cool :)

That looks really cool actually! The plan is to add STL file format support in Asset Forge 2 (free update in December) which should be better suited for 3D printing.

Thank you very much. I never thought this was part of your plan for the future. I now look forward to Asset Forge 2.

Kenney...you are brilliant.
