Tabs cannot select lines?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Tabs cannot select lines?

I don't get what is wrong here. I am trying to put tabs on a pretty small build to stop it lifting off the build plate at the ends but when I add the tabs I get a mesh of a fews lines instead of compact lines like the brim feature. These are not adquate. The picture in the Tabs help file shows lines similar to a brim. Any ideas what I am missing please... image.thumb.png.cc440f6d92c9def980ae11db53407a2c.pngimage.thumb.png.b5f33f90c6ab16ca7429c6d7ceede63e.png

    In that top view they look like they might be set to "Print as Support".

    Select one and click on the "Per Model" settings button on the left toolbar.  Set them all to "Print as Part".  It's something like that (but my house is far away and I don't see so well anymore).

    Yep, well done thanks for that. In pre model I needed to select the first one "Mesh Normal mode"... Cura 5.2... sorted,
