Model fills in an empty-space extrusion on bottom layers


Recommended Posts

Posted · Model fills in an empty-space extrusion on bottom layers

Hello, I'm printing a model for a project where the chassis of a simple arduino motor will be housed in a model meant to resemble a podracer. The files however seem to fill in the extrusion where the motor is supposed to slide into. If i flip the model to print with this extrusion at the top, the preview depicts that it will print fine, but this nearly doubles the PLA with support usage. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
