Solid Thing

Recommended Posts

hi,

you have to design your print in the 3d software as 2 separate parts and save them together in one STL.

Make the outer part hollow, (shell, in most software).

If this is no help enough, you might want to post a screenprint or something to get a better idea of your question.

Thanks for your fast reply! What do you mean with "save them togehter in one STL"? I work with Blender- I´m only able to make a boolean operation, so that the two parts become one.

I want to print a fuselage with a solid block in it, so that I can screw the wings on it.

I hope this helps!

Regards!

Not so fast this time, did not see it before.

I'm not familiar with blender, "save them together in one STL" means, you can save more then one part in a stl.

Perhaps you can copy your fuselage, scale down one, and substract one from the other?. or something like that.

than you end up with a hollow fuselage, to print with no infill.

Or draw a part for the spots you want hollow, and then do a boolean substraction.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
