How to implement concept of maximum positive - negative slope and scan frame offset in .m files

Recommended Posts

We have been developing a GUI for 3D- printing a cartridge and frame for dental implant procedure.

The frame is already rendered. But we need to be getting rid of overhangs greater than 60 (ie. maximum positive slope) {maximum negative slope concept also applies}.

We need to modify the rendered frame in such a way that there are no sharp bends, that 3D printer can not print and also there should be no necessity of support.
