Re: Cura: How to split objects?

OK, so after downloading and trying many 3D programs (FreeCAD, Blender, GoogleSketch, TinkerCAD. Autodesk 123D, etc) Netfabb (free version) offered the only solution that I could find, and it does it quiet easily. Here's a link to a video that shows you how. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rostD8O5sg

Re: Cura: How to split objects?

Thanks Geburges, but I need to be able to split a model into two separate pieces or multiple pieces to fit my print bed. I use the cutoff feature quite a bit, but I need to be able to cutoff the sides, not the bottom. And rotating in this case doesn't help because I'm trying to avoid overhang issues.

Cura: How to split objects?

Hey gang,

Was wondering if anyone knew how to use the "split object into parts" right click function in Cura. When I select it nothing happens. How do you use this feature, and/or how can I split an object that is too big to print?

Thanks!

Re: Cura profile for PETG?

Do you mean when the extruder touches the 4 corner washers? If so, then yes. It does seem to flex some on the initial contact before the slow contact. Is that normal?

PETG Post Processing?

As of yesterday I switched to PETG, and I must say, it is awesome! Switching PETG (from ABS and HIPS) has solved 99% of my printing woes. I do get some stinging, which I believe can be resolved with some more temperature tweaking. My question to the group is, do you guys know if there are post print...

Re: Problem : Corners lifting on parts while printing

Interestingly enough, an enclosure didn't help me. It some respects it made things worse. But this fixed it. Try it first before you put a lot of effort in your enclosure. Hopefully this will help. Good luck!

Re: Cura profile for PETG?

KingJamie, My spool of eSUN PETG (black) arrived today. I downloaded your PETG ini file. Loaded the PETG and hit print without making any other further adjustments. I was printing a 40mmx40mm cube and it came out 99% perfect. The only imperfection was a slight corner lift on one of the corners, but ...
