Surface Mode: 'Surface'/'Both' inner supports...

Recommended Posts

Posted · Surface Mode: 'Surface'/'Both' inner supports...



Is there a way to get supports to print on the inside of a solid model with no infill (or Surface mode: Surface/both)?  I know that I can slice a model with zero infill, and the supports will be created externally, but not to support internal overhangs...


I have some complex models that I need to print hollow.  Being able to precisely control the number of perimeters (at any scale) is very desirable for me (so hollowing the model in MeshMixer works, but generally does not give me the results I'm looking for).


Thanks in advance for any help.
