Mirroring the design - Rep 1.0.3 bug

Post by markm »

Hi,
With the V0.9 Repetier host software it was possible to load an STL file and then "scale" it by -1 in either the X or Y axis to create a mirror image before Gcode generation.

V1.0.3 refuses to accept my negative scale factor (box turns red). Can this be "fixed" somehow? Any other ways to create a mirror (crazily I don't think I can even mirror the object before export to STL using my DesignSpark Mechanical software).

Cheers,

Mark

As a workaround, you could use KISSlicer for this. The context menu of the small model preview in the right vertical window pane has the transformation options. When done, "Save packed STL" (not 100% sure whether this is a feature only available in the PRO version, but I don't think so).

OpenSTL seems quick and easy too.
