Hollow Object inner support structure

Recommended Posts

Posted · Hollow Object inner support structure

As quotedd I want to print a hollow objecct (see pictures). I was already able to print that one without support structure but the result wasn't really satisfying at some points, therefore I thought modeling a supportive structure inside the object could help. Unfortunately, when slicing the model the modeled structure is totally gone and I'm asking myself why this is happening. 

I'm quite new into 3D printing and thankful for any advise.

Thanks in advance

    I’m going take a guess that the walls you have in the model are to thin for you to print. If using a 0.4mm nozzle your wall thickness needs to really be 0.4mm but you can get away with a little thinner.


    So you could try editing the model to add some wall thickness or you could try smaller nozzle sizes.


    but basically if your settings have a line width of say 0.35mm any walls thinner than that it not be able to print.

        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.
