How to overlap materials in multi-material parts?

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to overlap materials in multi-material parts?

How can I create a defined overlap between materials in multi-material parts? Specifically, I want the extruder to move into material A at the intersection by a small amount, e.g., 0.2 mm, when extruding material B, to increase the bonding. Is there a way to do it with Cura or other software, or do I have to design the parts such that they overlap and (manually) align them?

 

Thanks!

Sounds like you are looking for "Merged Meshes Overlap" in Cura, it's in the section "Mesh Fixes" (search for "overlap", if it is not visible).
