Remove a sloped surface


Recommended Posts

Posted · Remove a sloped surface

Trying to figure out how to slice something like this cube with a sloped surface.  I don't want a top, bottom or the the sloped part printed, just the infill.  I have top/bottom thickness = 0, which properly removes the top and bottom, but not the slope.


I tried using a support blocker with overlap settings with wall thickness = 0, but that doesn't seem to do anything.


I thought of somehow changing my model, but it has to be a solid object to slice.


Using Cura 5.2.1

    My idea is to make the Support Blocker a Cutting Mesh with 0 walls, 0 top and bottom.  I sized the support blocker to leave 1.2mm walls in the front, sides, and back.  There is no top, bottom, or slope.


    Great idea! Just need to untick the connect infill lines to stop the infill on the slope.
