Frequently Asked Questions

Why is the STL file incorrect?

The internal processing of the Z3D Laboratory is optimized for creating, manipulating, and viewing 3D models. Generating and saving the model to STL is not optimal, and sometimes creates improper STL data. As such, we strongly recommend cleaning all STL files before using in other applications, and especially before 3D printing. Here are a few online services for cleaning STL files:

Why those colors?

The Laboratory provides a set of default colors, which are the same as those available for ColorFabb PLA filaments. ColorFabb offers the widest set of color variations.
