DUPLICATE FILES

Post#1 » Mon Mar 18, 2019 2:30 am

Hi someone could help me to fix this issue:I import a stl model add support and so on than I export in stl and save the modificate stl file in the same cartel same name, than I save as B9 layout in the same cartel or different with same name or different or different name.
If I open one other time the saved b9 layout saved file, is corrupted because the layout show the stl file unified with support and I cannot modify it, and also only the support in the same layout but not the model!
How could fix this wrong visualization?
I tried to save the stl and b9 layout with different name or position but I didn't fix the issue, when I click on the b9 file saved with a different name, while opening appare the stl file saved name How could resolve?
Pls help me

When you open the B9l file are you selecting the "Supports" field and then "Modify" and selecting the support you wish to change?

This is normal. You created a layout with specific .stl file. Then you changed that .stl file. The layout can't help if you change the .stl file it was originally based upon.

If you export a layout with multiple .stl's and supports then it becomes a single .stl file. You can open it in a new layout and orientate it, support it and do everything else you want just as if it were a single mesh. But it you can't modify any of it, because it's treated as a single mesh.
