Step 1: Import a 3D model
Meshmixer can import the following 3D mesh types
Meshmixer can import only one file at a time
Step 2: Add another 3D model
You can add multiple models to the build volume.
Ember uses a parallel 3D printing technology, it prints the whole slice in one go. This means that the print time is determined by the Z height of print job and is independent of the X-Y size.
Try this for yourself by printing multiples of the same object, as long as the Z height of the print job is the same, the job will take the same time!
To import another model
If you want to replace the current model rather than add another, simply click "Replace" instead of "Append"
Step 3: Selecting an Object
To select a model you can either
If you can't see the "Object Browser"
