Proper preparation for printing (slicing)?

Posted · Proper preparation for printing (slicing)?

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.

Markus

    Pictures might help? As I'm not 100% sure what you're trying to do, and if it's a Cura problem, a model problem, or an understanding each other problem.

    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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
