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.

    • "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.
