Have a question?
@Doodle3D 20.03.17 Concerning the question of "being able to make a sketch with exact dimensions" you answerd "We don't have a timeframe for it yet, but it will be included in version 1.0." Now Version 1.0 is released but I can't find this function...
Did a search in my email for 3d Doodle and found the email.
Hi, life has been busy and I realized I never saw the email with my license key. Is there a way I can get the key? I will like to compare this software with other products I have used.
thanks for your feedback; honnestly not the one I hoped, but you're transparent and honnest in your response I like it.
I've been looking on internet,
Simplify3D offers to fix 3D models while slicing; it does not work well with all models (I use hte piggybank as test model)
also, there are some websites that fix 3d models.
It's a better work around than Tinkercad (Tinkercad does not import the piggybank model).
I can live with that.
do you have a feedback regarding the union export? (messages exchanged in April)
can we get a tool for snap measurements? i have a design that would require me to adjust to a certain mm and not redraw the whole thing. thx
@Ivan Hoe, thanks for your comment. Always one step ahead of us :-) A Doodle3D Transform software update is scheduled for tomorrow as well as the long expected firmware for the Doodle3D WiFi-Box. You will read all about this and about the shipment of the WiFi-Box'es in this week's Kickstarter Update. Expect it tomorrow or the day after.
Good to hold fast to the conviction that timely, honest & accurate communication with your Backers is crucial.
Hi RL, there will be an update this week with the progress we're making and the setbacks we've had. Apologies for the lack of news, rest assured that not a day goes by without our team putting in hours and effort into getting Transform finished and into your hands.
Four months delay and almost three months without update, when will you launch the phone app or its already dead?
?? When will you launch the apps?
@kao, @hmsjun: we're still working hard on Transform and the WiFi-Box integration and hope to share more in an update soon. Apologies for the delays, we're doing our best to get it right.
Have you had a chance to use the online beta yet? If you did not receive our invitation for it please send us a private message and we'll get you setup.
Hey! I haven't received anything!
i did not receive anything.could you tell me what going on
@Pierre Fontaine, I will send it to you in a private message.
I've switched computers and no longer have my e-mail for my download link and key. Can a new one be generated for me please?
@Yanming Chen, I think Nico has just send you a message with a copy of your license key(s). Thanks for reporting.
Hey! I haven't received anything, even the beta version.
@Dylan I just sent you a message
Hello there..looking for that license key.
Sadly I'm having a horrid time finding the private messages through kickstarter.
Is there an email I can reach you at
Hi guys, the beta has been open to all backers since november last year. We have sent out all the invitations but a number of people had trouble receiving them due to the invitations being filtered out by spamfilters. Likely this is the case for you too. Send us a private message on kickstarter and we will send you your license key to get started with the beta!
I have the same question as the last person, hows the progress on the program. How do i get access to it, seems some people already have access to it are they pre beta testers, the pledge was to have access during beta testing.
i've gotten nothing no word.
I still am not sure it will do what i want and creator confirmed it would yet.
but it looks neat.
Hi! I have a question about this program! Is it done already? How can I download it?
@Christopher, @Mourik; for all the latest and full information please check our updates. Transform and the new wireless functions for the WiFi-Box are still being worked on.
When will I get the wifi box
Hi, i backed this but received nothing. Can you explain that to me.
Thanks for your help in the app chat.
The work around (ref. your advise) is: on another device, my pc, in the Doodle3D app > Imported image > Save it > in tablet > My Doodle > click on the image that was saved earlier.
I am currently chatting with Jeroen, your team mate in the Doodle3D app chat.
Current situation: problem importing .png into the app.
I understand from Jeroen this is a bug issue.
My configuration: samsung tab 4, 10.1", Android 4.4.2.
Using another browser as advised by Jeroen, is not an option for me.
I am unhappy about this.
That is a great idea for the future :) Autodraw does not have an API yet for us to use, but that would sure be fun. We do want to figure out a way to put a searchbar for google's icons from within the app so you don't have to leave the app to find your source material.
Hei folks, imagine Google's Autodraw > download drawing > import .png into Doodle3D > manipulate, edit > print. Power!
Dear Henk, we've sent you a message through Kickstarter yesterday. I will try to reach you by email.
how i get this wifi box, i payed for it but till this moment nothing!!!!!!!!!
@Charles Bernard, @pclabtech: thanks guys for sharing. We will discuss this issue in our upcoming tech meeting this week. I think we need to do some work on unions in our exports. Workarounds are nice but a real solution is better. I will let you know what we can do about this.
In the latest Cura (2.4) Charles's example doesn't cause this issue. Cura unions overlapping volumes by default.
I am using Simplify3D.
To add an information; if I import the STL into Tinkercad and export it again from Tinkercad; there is no more issues.
it's a workaround, but not a solution, TinkerCad does not support import of large STL (I cant import the piggybank).
See this doodle: http://hpics.li/636a69c
when sliced when I export it directly from Doodle3D: http://hpics.li/0fbcdd9
when I import it to TinkerCad (http://hpics.li/82ec788): results of slicing: http://hpics.li/65fd401
Charles does have a point. Using your program to type simple text on the screen, export the STL, then import it into another editing program (I use Tinkercad) some of the letters are deformed or missing "chunks"
@Charles What slicer is that? We've sliced and printed the piggybank design a number of times (in cura), never ran into what you are seeing on your screen..
do you have news about the STL export/slicing bug.
When I slice an exported STL, the intersection are empty; see the interestion of the pig bank grid here:
(and any other part where the design has a superposition of shape/material).
@pclabtech: Good idea, I think we can add that one when we're adding the 'dimensions' info.
I noticed there are no "values" on rotating objects. It would be nice to know if you are at 90, 180, 270, 0 or a variant of a degrees to better line up the object.
@Homero, Christopher: Hi guys, please check our updates. We will not send out the WiFi-Box untill we have a working integration with the Transform tool, otherwise you end up receiving something that is incomplete and we do not want that.
When will I receive the wifi box? I haven't received it
When will I receive the wifi box? I haven't received it and I should have gotten it by February
@Adam We don't have a timeframe for it yet, but it will be included in version 1.0.
Any time frame on being able to make a sketch with exact dimensions? I would use Doodle3d so much because it's so easy to use if it had dimensional capability. For instance right now I need to make a 3D printed bracket. The bracket needs 4 holes with exact spacing. But currently I cannot make this bracket with Doodle3d due to the fact I can't specify the spacing. I'm going to have to use my other cad software again.
@Gernot; the stamp tool is very experimental currently. As we said in our update, try at your own discretion :) The final implementation for a tool like that will likely be quite different (in code and design), so its unlikely we'll do cross-browser support for the experimental version.
@Ivan; Q1 is also addressed in our most recent update. The short version is we don't know exactly, but we are working hard on it to get it to the level and polish that we'd like to see. Please bear with us.
Q2 testing with the WiFi-Box is done throughout the proces as the code is being written, we'll reserve an extra 1 to 2 weeks at the end of the proces for our unit tests.
