Z height

Recommended Posts

Posted · Z height

Hello,

I have an STL file that is a single part that I would like into two part (top and bottom)

So is there a way in Cura 15 that I can set the Z height to stop or start generating gcode at.

Many thanks imk

PS if Cura can't it would make a nice addon

Go to the advanced tab, under the Quality section you will see "cut off object bottom". Tell it how many mm you want to cut off and you will see the model sink into the print bed. This sorts the top half. Then the success of the bottom half will depend on the shape of your model; rotate the model 180 degrees about the Y axis and again cut-off the model.

    • "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.
