    Hi everybody,
    just started working on the Corsair F4U. I’m using the STL-files, but in den download archive the parts of the right wing are missing. Does anybody has the same problem?
    Maybe a team-member could check this to…

    Thank you in advance!

    Not really sure about mirroring… The other models had all the necessary parts compiled in the download archieves.

    Hi Max, just mirror it.

    I was wondering the same. So it really is just a matter of mirroring the left… every other model has had the left and right wings. I assumed as much but this is a lot of plastic so glad y’all answered this already.

    You may want to add that into your user guide. It’ll prevent others asking the same question.

    Well this is covered in gcodes and of course factory files, the other methods are just a fallback, but yes, I’ll think about where to mention this. For now, I’ll make this topic sticky.

    It would seem to me that this could introduce some possibility for errors, if a user did not choose the correct plane to mirror about. and the problem may only be discovered after many hours of printing. I would like to see the left and right wing stl files 🙂

    Hi @timmyklus

    as I said, this is covered in both gcodes and factory files. You just load it, adjust only the parameters specific for your printer and hit the Prepare to Print button. It can’t be any easier. This issue is only affecting other “fallback” slicers, which could be used, but are not directly supported. Yes, it could introduce some errors, but there are plenty of other settings for all the parts, especially the Corsair. We’d need to write down all the parameters for each STL how it’s supposed to be printed, but that’s just double the work.

    In other words, if you want it the easy way, use Simplify3D and the prepared factory files. Or you can go the “free” but longer way, and it just involves some greater effort.

    Thanks for understanding 😉

    your slicer or printer host should have a mirror option, personally, i use Cura or repetier host.

    I use Simplify3D as slicer and now I found the mirror option. Thanks Martin.
