Brim only on the outside of object?

Recommended Posts

Trick you could do, is disable the brim. Set the skirt lines to 30. And set the skirt distance to 0.01

This will generate an outside only brim (as you trick the skirt code, which is only on the outside, to acts as a brim)

Yes... that is why I'm only talking about brims and skirts.. not actual support material for overhangs. That's a completely different story of course.

Especially when I print something tall and kinda thin I usually include nice wide base to the export as I have had cases where the printer head has knocked over the prints... typically in the later layers.

I can confirm that these settings work, although 20 skirt lines might be more than enough :)

    • 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.
