Printing surfaces

Recommended Posts

Hi Celso,

The slicing process take a slice of the geometry and create polygons from it along the that z height. If the slice is not closed than it can't properly define how the face behave. Since the system doesn't create volume (it uses volume) then it will create random results.

How could the software tell that this section need to grow and the other need to be constrained to the available space?

There is an option in the expert settings to keep the open faces. I don't know if it will do what you want but you can try. The thing with the wall width is that it doesn't create geometry. It just fill volume available with a shell thickness and leave the remaining space available for the infill mostly to save material and print time.

    • 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.
