How do I add support inside my 3D Model to remove it later ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · How do I add support inside my 3D Model to remove it later ?

I have a model that I vertically split in 2 parts,

I remove the bottom layer (where is the cut of the half part)

I wondering how to put some support INSIDE the 3D Model (not only outside) ?

I uderstand I can only put Infile ? so I put a thin bottom + 5% infill line to add some support but may be I'm doint it wrong ? My goal is to be able to remove the inside at the end and stick the both part together keeping a hole from bottom

    if this is a hollow model you could try with support blockers..
    But if this is just a model you are trying to print with zero infill.. you will need to adjust the model with 3rd party software (meshmixer or something) and make it "shell" with thickness to it for UltiMaker Cura to generate support.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
