Replacing DIY printer parts with MK3S

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Replacing DIY printer parts with MK3S

I made DIY printer using MDF, off the shelves parts and now want to replace parts with 3d printed one with Prusa i3 MK3S design.


Cura seems to ignore small holes and gaps. As per following thread suggests that I need Simplify 3D to print parts for reasonble fits on smalls components like square nuts and belt. 


Is this the case?




Using PLA at 0.2mm to print.

I don't see why Cura would be unable to slice these parts.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
