Cut off object TOP

Recommended Posts


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

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

    • "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.
