Cut off object TOP

Recommended Posts

Hi,

is there a way to cut off the Top of a part? I know it is possible with a plugin with a pause at a specific layer for example.

It would be nice to have a second option beside the "cut off object bottom" for "cut off object top" so that you can print large model in two parts without the need of meshmixer to cut the pieces.

Thank you, greets

dirk

Hmmm... is a solid top needed for the cut print? If not, the solution is indeed not too difficult to achieve with a plugin.

If yes, then the solution has to be within Cura (for the time being; this might be different with PU).

Optimal solution (for me) would be to enter the mm's where the cut should be for bottom and top. (2 prints)

And when there would be a checkbox for enable/disable solid top/bottom at cut..wow. no need for an another 3d program :cool:

solid top/bottom at cut would be nice for gluing

    • 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.
