How to print

Recommended Posts

hello

I would like the next car will print this car comes from sketchup and got it exported to a STL.

Only this car is not coming from the printer.

Who can explain to me how I should do this?

You will have to split this into something like 50 pieces and glue it all together.

Be warned that Sketchup produces very poor quality files for 3D printing. If you have the possibility, switch to Blender or FreeCAD.

View the car in "xray mode" in the older cura (from more than 2 days ago) and anything shown in the color red will have trouble print as it is an error in the sketchup model. You have to fix all of those.

Alternatively you can sometimes overcome sketchup errors by checking some of the boxes in "fix horrible".

ALWAYS view the model in slice view before printing to make sure that Cura understands what you want.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
