Huge shadow around volume

Recommended Posts

If you want to stack items very close together, you can always multiply and arrange them in your CAD-editor, and save that as a new design. For example, in this way you can place items in a ring (otherwise the area in the ring would be wasted), or in some other hollow area. Or you can place items in-between other items with fingers, and so on. For your wheels, you could place them in a very tight hexagonal pattern. The printer will consider it as one design, and print all together.

      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "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.
