I have a commission to print an Auryn medallion from the never ending story. I’ve found an open source stl file, but it lacks the scale texture.

Is there a software or trick out there that would allow me to add some snake scale texture to a section of a print?

give a try to +Meshmixer

You could set up a brush in Blender to sculpt in the pattern:

I’ve never tried this with an imported STL, but if there is sufficient geometry, there is no reason it shouldn’t work.

@Sergio_MC I already use meshmixer for my support material, didn’t know it could do that too! I’ll check there next. TY!

@Sergio_MC I can’t find a meshmixer community. Back to the drawing board.
