I was trying to edit a .stl file I downloaded in order to print it, but I encountered multiple problems. I am going to share all the files I’m talking about, so it will be easier for you to follow. You can find them here.
So, my file is the miner.stl one. I tried to import it in a new sketchup file with little succes: the application becomes unresponsive and after a few hours I terminated it.
Because of that I used an online converter to create a .3ds file which is miner.3ds. That way I was able to import it in the sketchup file (however this file is now 119MB! What the hell?).
However I need to cut it, as you can see in the miner_flat.skp file. I just need to remove the back of the miner that goes over the plane.
I simply can’t find a way to do so. Can anyone of you help me? It would be much appreciated!
