Wire printing

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had success with wire printing? The closest I've gotten is this print of a standard cylinder. IMG_20150810_145715.thumb.jpg.ad8185484b6e777ab8d52221cd79798e.jpg

The first issue is I can't get it to print a nice bottom layer on which to build the print on. I tried adding a brim but it isn't showing up.

Also the tops of each triangle aren't drooping (if they're supposed to droop at all!) equally and so when the circle tries to connect the points, sometimes it can't find anything to stick to.

The wire printing is very experimental. Bagelorb is the engineer that made it, he should be able to give some pointers, but i'm not sure if he's on the forum. If you create an issue on the CuraEngine repo he should be able to help you.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
