Cut off object TOP

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cut off object TOP

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

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

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
