How do you print this part?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was trying to print the following upgrade: www.thingiverse.com/thing:8550

Now I have the following issues when slicing the pieces:

-Rear.stl (all ok, already printed, slices fine)

-XY_stabilizer (all ok, already prined, slices fine)

-Left_front (issues)

-Right_front (issues)

The "issues" for those parts is that Cura creates several layers around one of the holes before actually doing anything else. Makes me think it wants to print the piece "mid-air".

I have checked both pieces are laying flat on the bed and I want to use the brim option when printing.

Any advices?

The holes are part of the same surface of the item and they aren't on a different level.

Additional note: I need to print those pieces without rotating them as otherwise there will be a bad overhand which won't allow me to print one of the holes.

Hints? Black magic?

Hi,

Gave the Left front a try in Cura, No Fix Horrible setting fixed it.

Rotating 90degr, gave other gaps.

Loading the the STL in autodesk123, gave me the idea, it's designed as 3 different parts,

not combined, melted or Boolean operated as it should.

Perhaps you can fix something with meslab or meshmixer, or request for a 3dcad file you can modify.

Perhaps another slicer to give it a try.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
