Re: Underside of prints looking rough

Another thing you'll be learning soon is that with some materials the overhang will tend to curl up when printing regardless of the support you build underneath it, and that can lead to a rough under-side as well. Just something to watch for, and may drive you to settings on support that make it a ...

Re: Underside of prints looking rough

As the user above me has said, you'll never achieve great finish under support. Depending on what your printing with you could consider a water soluble support material. This enables you to do the support without any separation between it and the main model, and then dissolve it away. Although if t...

Re: Underside of prints looking rough

In working with support the layer thickness of the build is an important variable, as you can only specify the separation from the support as a number of layers. I normally use a separation of one layer. My suggestion would be to make a small test part that requires support on a shallow-angle surfa...

Re: "Model out of range" despite being in range

It's hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like it's too close to the front. The white 'model boundary box' is showing underneath the 'platform extent box'. Check it from top view. If you change the colour of the extruder (using the view option) to say blue, it makes it easier to see how the ...

"Model out of range" despite being in range

Despite my model and bounding box being in range, I get this error when trying to slice. Is there anything else I should check?

Thanks.

Thank you Noren, I believe you are exactly right! I had not used the layers slider within the preview and hadn't seen that the underlying mesh was just fine. I am new to FFF and wasn't aware of wipe walls. Thank you again.

Re: Right extruder slice appears to invert model?

Hey, thank you for the replies. Unfortunately, I'm still have an issue.

When I set the raft to the right extruder I still get a bad mesh:

When I select everything to print via the right extruder I get this:

Right extruder slice appears to invert model?

Hey folks, I have recently procured a Pro2 and was hoping someone could suggest why this is happening. I slice with right-click "left extruder" selected and the slicer preview shows it good to go. When I slice with the "right extruder" the previewed mesh seems to have inverted an...
