    wrote a whole long thing and erased just to say blender is a horrible environment. I'm sure it will appeal to some, but the logic of things is way off and weird.

    Is it really necessary to make it a single object in Blender? I've printed models I've made in an old version of Lightwave that were created from simply overlapping different objects with no joining or booleans for the most part and exporting them to STLs, DAE, or OBJ files. I check that they are watertight and such, but I haven't had any issue with this method unless there are any gaps between objects that should be overlapping.

    This allows for more easy editing of the model later should changes be needed without having to go back to a prior iteration.

    Nice thanks!

    Let me ask. If I use particles to add a bunch of meshes to a cylinder, think water drops on a coke can, can I turn that into a solid printable object?
