Learn to Combine Slice Files by Tony Riggs

In this short video we will be discussing some reasons why you might want to combine the slice files for STL files that you have already processed and the tools necessary to accomplish this task.  Some common reasons for wanting to combine slice files might be to combine geometry from parts that we always want to print together or cases where we might want an internal area of our part to have different slice settings and we can’t use custom groups to accomplish what we need to do.  In our CAD package we can break out sections of the part into multiple files and process them separately with different settings, but then combine them back together before we send them to the printer.

About Tony Riggs

Hey, my name is Tony Riggs. I grew up just north of Tulsa, Oklahoma and attended the University of Tulsa where I received a BS in Mechanical Engineering. I worked for five years at Flight Safety International (current customer with 40+ SW licenses). We designed and built flight simulators for commercial and private jets. I moved to Texas in 2000 and got married. I called up our SOLIDWORKS reseller and asked if they knew of anyone needing someone with SOLIDWORKS experience and I started there the next week. I began working with Stratasys machines in 2003. I had some experience with a few laser scanners and milling machines. I enjoy working on SOLIDWORKS Beta testing, but have different levels of success based on what else it going on that year.
