Raft texture on model?

Recommended Posts

Well there is a feature called fuzzy skin.  You can enable fuzzy skin only on the bottom few layers if you want.  fuzzy skin is very cool.  If you set the values very small it is a subtle fuzz and yet can still hide layer lines.


Other than that I guess you would have to use the raft feature.

Thanks - I'll experiment with that. May not be exactly what I'm looking for, but worth a shot.


I'd love to replicate the same bottom texture that a raft has. I suspect trying to model it will cause the slicer a fair amount of grief. I guess the other option is to graft the code from the bottom couple of raft layers.

What I'm trying to recreate is the same texture that the bottom of the raft has. I would love that on the bottom of my model. That is, the surface of the raft that touches the build plate, which has a fairly coarse texture to it.


From the little observation that I've made, layer 1 is lines that are close, but not touching.


I'll try to grab some pictures a little later to show.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
