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
