Posted · Can ultimaker2 print this type of model?

Today I try printing a bridge which is very complex. In this bridge, I add many supports. Also some parts are too thin. So I am not sure how to print this type of model by ultimaker2. I also want to print a Eiffel Tower, but I am afraid the final model will not be satisfied, for there are too many thin parts in it. How to set the parameters of cura if I want to print it? Thank you!IMG_1992.thumb.JPG.728d7ef44bf89359e6420649d8076044.JPG

    printing all at once is not recemmended, and small scale will need a lot of practice and experience, but generally tiny detailed stuff is much better if you just print in parts. Tiny geometric stuff is better suited to the resin printers. Everything else is fine with the UM2 and far cheaper, like over 100 times cheaper.
