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.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
