How do you print models bigger than printing volume?

Recommended Posts

Posted · How do you print models bigger than printing volume?

Hello,

 

i have a Anycubic i3 Mega which has a max printing height of 205mm. The model i want to print is 240mm tall so the rest is sticking out of the printing area. How do i make sure/force my printer to only print the model which is inside the allowed printing area? I cannot slice my model unless i somehow remove the area which is too tall. My plan is to only print the 205mm of the model and the rest 35mm separately. How can i do that?

You cannot do this with cura. Cura can only scale. You have to use CAD-Software to cut your precious part into pieces and glue them together afterwards.

I’ve used Microsoft 3D Build (comes with Windows 10) to slice pieces of models before.

 

Ive seen others mention Mesh Mixer...

Mesmixer is my favorite way to go. It is free and there are enough tutorials available to learn its basics.
