flat overhang being printed in an angle

Recommended Posts

Hey All.   I'm printing two piece with a tab and slot to join the parts. The slots are supposed to be flat overhangs which shows up in solid view but after slicing, they show up as angled in the layer view and is being printed that way.  I can't figure out why Cura would cha nge it.  It prints fine using S3D but I want to use Cura for the Ironing feature.  1.thumb.JPG.0963477bbc9cf16672226da47665e0d4.JPG2.thumb.JPG.0ed2af85c2f4848d10c98e9e368ae5cc.JPG

I think you might have "make overhang printable" checked.


If not then show us what the part looks like in xray view mode (there's normal mode, slice view and xray).  Does it show the overhang in xray mode?

    • "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.
