adjustable wrench, trial1

Recommended Posts

You might want to adjust the horizontal expansion so the parts don't intertwine. There's a Cura option for that that I forgot the name (ofc is a hodden option that needs to be unhidden).


thanks, i never know that there was so much hidden "underwater"

do you give a possitive value or negative value to make the holes bigger?

i assume a +1

or is this trial and errow combined with a bit of good luch :)

Umm yeah is called Horizontal expansion. Well if you use a beta g number you will see the slice layers changing. So that will show you how much or less it needs to be. I assume negative number would compress the print and positive will expand right?

But to only change the outlines there's other option called Outer Wall Inset. Play with it and check the changes on the slicer view.

    • "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.
