I need to model a tank for Rapid-prototyping, I started to build the mesh on 3d max because i can export the mesh in .stl file. The problem is that i dont know anything regrading prototyping.
1) is there are specific ways of modeling for prototyping or should i model normally
2) in how many .stl files, I should break the mesh for prototyping
( i mean i model the tank in which the turret is a whole different mesh, hull is a different mesh, wheels are totally different mesh etc, in max i combine all and export .stl for prototyping will it work or should i export every different mesh individually )
I am confused plz help me out
