Proper preparation for printing (slicing)?

Recommended Posts

Hello

I know so far only Cura, perhaps a mistake. For now I can not get further with a fairly simple self-constructed test object intended for transparent material.

There is a large cylinder on which a Smaller is, they are both connected. Top and bottom are closed. I wanted to determine the internal structure complete itself, ie wall thickness, inner shell, outer shell, fill, etc.

I've tried a lot in the expert settings, but no matter what, it is not possible to slicing the object correctly.

My simple question is:

Is there a slicer that can take into account also the interior of solids? Maybe someone has a quick tip for me. Or it works with Cura, and I used the wrong Settings.

 

I hope my question is understandable enough.

OK, I'll try it once to visualize. I had to get a saw before. :smile:

The object shown is a little different than I described it originally, but it is also so not printable (correctly), at least I assume so, because the layer preview in Cura shows an incomplete object. Fix horrible and Black Magic show visible changes, but never as desired.

What am I doing wrong?

Not sure if you still need a solution to this, but lets see. First, sounds like you want to print cylinder2 inside cylinder1 with transparent materiel, and be able to 'see' the structure of cylinder 2.

If this is correct, first, you can't use 100% infil for the obvious reason. But I've been able to get items to print 'inside' others by:

In max, make sure the parts are seperate objects. Select the ones you want, 'export selected'.

In cura, make sure your infil is less than 100% (i'm printing with 0% infil and .12 wall thickness since I have cura issues myself).

In cura, make sure "print all at once" is selected.

If it still won't slice in cura, try a boolean if you havn't.

      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.
