Cut off object TOP


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cut off object TOP


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

    Just use pause at Z plugin and abort your print.

    Edit: ha yes if you need to print more than one piece it wont work. Could be an interesting plugin to do.

    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

      • 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
