Tucci Hot Rods: 3D printing final custom car parts
Snow Business: 3D printing final parts for high-value snow machines
I am quite new to 3D printing and wander if it is possible to print only the lower part of an object without turning it around. I know it is possible to print the higher part by changing the Z-axis.
Cut it up in a 3D Package? Use the Pause at height plugin to stop the printing at a certain height?
But, I would just turn it around and let the flat part sit on the plate and be super smooth.
Kind of late reply but if anyone stumbles across this thread in the future here it is.
What I have done is use Meshmixer. It usually can't do much without messing it up completely and is kind of cumbersome to work with. But it has been very good at cutting objects in half.
In simplify3d you can split your model at a spcific layer if you like.
This is mainly for having different settings for specific parts of your modell, but you could also stop print at layer xy.
For example sektion A is layer 1-88.
Sektionn B 89-200 and sektion C 200-250.
You can stop at end of A
If you are on Windows 10, check out the 3D Builder tool that is included. It's very easy to split models in all kinds of ways. Perfect for this kind of task.
