3d print surface

Recommended Posts

Posted · 3d print surface

Hello people of the Ultimaker 3d community!

I have a problem printing my car model and was hoping one of you could help me. The car model is a surface made in Fusion 360. For some reason it is impossible to make the surface to a solid. I would like the model to be about 2 mm thick, but when you slice the model it will only print parts of it. Is there a way to fix this model?

    "Your model is not manifold" error.

    It can't be sliced because it isn't a solid and it's not closed.  You'll need to do something in Fusion to create a solid model.  I don't know Fusion but in other programs you could make a solid base and then do Surface Cuts and eliminate the areas that aren't part of the car.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
