Cura: noob question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura: noob question

I'm looking at purchasing a printer with a very small print area. Small enough that it likely won't be large enough to print some models I may be interested in. I'm wondering, is it possible in Cura to take a model and say, cut it into halves for later reassembly after printing?

 

Thanks!

Yes it is. I do not think there is a simple "cut" command but you can sink the model below the build plate and print the top half and then rotate the model 180 and sink it again and print the bottom half. There will be free software out there which will cut the model in two before you get to Cura; not something I have done but probably Meshmixer or Netfabb, no doubt others too.
