RE: [rp-ml] Printing overlaping mesh parts

    Your question would depend greatly on the type of output device you
are using and the proprietary data preparation software for each
machine. Those systems that are raster based have a greater likelihood
of combining mesh shells intelligently. Those systems that rely on
vector plotting will have a greater problem at the slice level
    You may want to solve this problem by using a mesh tool like
MagicsRP or Claytools to combine these shells into a single mesh object
before processing the file for printing

Subject: [rp-ml] Printing overlaping mesh parts

Is it possible to print a file with several mesh components, where all
of the objects at some point overlap?
ie, ringshank+head+prongs
Many thanks,
