Slicing Microchannel Networks

Recommended Posts

I am trying to print microchannel structures. The slicing of fine channels consisting of one print-head move works. It does not work anymore when coarser structures (more than one line and layer) are present in the stl-model to be sliced. Assembling of fine and coarse structure on the platform (cura 13) is not possible.

Has anyone had the same problem and found a solution?

Can you be more specific? Maybe post an image of what you are talking about? I think you are talking about one of the "thin wall" problems but not sure. Thin wall issues were somewhat improved in Cura recently. Usually you can do a fudge fix with thin walls by lying about the nozzle size and saying your nozzle is .3mm or .5mm instead of .4mm but I don't know what you are asking so please give more details. And include relevant distances.

    • "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.
