Special modes>surface mode issue


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Special modes>surface mode issue

Hello everyone! i wondering if any way to solve my little problem here. Im interested in to use surface mode as well but i need a top and buttom layers also. The trouble i get in surface mode is slycing only the single walls, in "Both mode" i get problems crossing walls and surfaces. The only way that I found is the location of the surface edges from the walls at a distance of the nozzle diameter, but this option of moddeling is incredibly time-consuming.

    Looks like you're designing a 3D printed plane, aren't you ?

    If you want to have top and bottom layers, you'll have to use "Both" mode. And as you understood, you'll have to trim the inner surface before it touches the outer wall. There's no other way.
