Looking for someone to take a gif and turn it into a STL file for me


#1

Hi, I have watched video after video of how to take a 2d and turn it into 3d then print it. but I just cant get it to do what everyone else can.
So can somebody a helluva lot cleverer than me please help?

Would you post a link to one of the videos you’ve watched, to better understand your objective? Also consider to post the image you wish to convert.

Hi the gif I would like made into an STL file is this one…M%26PHugs112 .

I tried following a youtube video and Cura help to do it myself, I cant find the youtube vid now but will keep looking.

I dont want it to big and able to print on my MP Select Mini v1.

There’s going to be some compromises made, as the image you’ve provided is multi-color and your printer is single color. Are you wanting to have a mostly flat print with raised portions where the black lines are located? The image you’ve provided is very small, making the black line portions equally tiny.

I’ve performed a bit of conversion on this image and the result can be found via my Dropbox storage. I am unable to attach the file in the message. Let me know when you’ve downloaded it so I can remove it to keep my storage clear.

It’s 8 mm tall and a bit more than 83 mm in x/y direction. If this isn’t what you want, let me know what should be changed.
