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?

    • 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.
