The MatchMeshEdge command moves face edges of an open mesh to meet adjacent face edges.
|●||First, the command will try to match vertices, then it will try to split edges to make the edges match.|
|●||No part of the mesh is moved more than the specified tolerance.|
|●||You can use this command either on the complete mesh or on selected edges.|
|●||When selecting a whole mesh, using a high tolerance can create unexpected results. Use larger tolerances only if you select specific edges to close.|
|●||Before edge matching, magenta edges are open.|
Select a mesh edge.
Select specific edges to match.
Specify the tolerance distance.
Matching the mesh takes place in four passes starting at a tolerance that is smaller than your specified tolerance and working up to the specified tolerance with successive passes. This matches small edges first and works up to larger edges.
|●||Some STL/SLA printers have problems if meshes contain many long, thin facets. These can slow the printer's slicing process down, produce odd printed results, and run the printer out of memory.|
|●||The MeshRepair command may be useful when tuning up meshes for STL/SLA printing.|
