"Dear Diary, today while exploring a dank, dark, and Kobold-infested cave, I encountered the ghost of a lovely human woman. She stared directly into my eyes as we spoke. I felt great pity for her and the lamentable truth of her untimely demise at the hands of the ruthless inhabitants here. She explained that they had been after spleen's on the day that they ambushed her, caught unwary."
And then they made her a descent grave with a nice tombstone.
Don't get too excited - there is a lot more to be done.
As I found out the reason Solid Edge is so resistant is because it doesn't like working with none solid and hollow objects, which meshes are. I tried some tools to fill'em up, but to no luck at this time. So for the time being I am stuck to tracing.
Additionally, just leaving the models as is is not a good idea - no assembly points. I need to add custom made joints, holes and such in order to make something worth printing and easily assembling. Otherwise I will just end up with the toy model with in default T pose.
Lastly, I do not have access to a 3D printer at this time.
So it will be a while before something tangible comes from all of this.
Yes, I have been looking into cracking the 3D printing possibilities of GR2 for a long time now. And so far this GR2->SMD->STL is the furthest I ever got.
At this time I am stuck with not being able to make anything out of STL for yet unknown reasons to me. But unlike GranyViewer I have a stable 3D model that I can measure and convert into a schematic manually.
At this time am using SolidEdge V20. I do have a copy of SolidEdge ST6, but that interface seams alien to me, so V20 it is for now.
But I'm not picky about the tools to use.
If you could convert GR2 to any other CAD format, I would love to hear it.
I would enjoy trying my hand at some fan art but it would only be vaguely conceptual for me at this point as I know so little about the characters. The Crystal Mage is the character who I would be most likely to paint.
You wont know unless you try. Besides, I stated with a lot worse.
