May your supports hold and your build-plate be full.


Atom-Alchemist

Both my built plates are full rofl. Which is impressive given my main printer is a epax e10.


DrStalker

Those dark blue parts are inside out. Blender's `recalculate outside` will fix that, or other tools can also do the job.


Atom-Alchemist

Huh..so thats how that is fixxed, I just remirrored the parts which fix it on a second bed print. ​ I was curious on exactly what was causing that as there are other models that are the same but are main parts so I can't just recreate em..and lychee didn't detect an error either.


DrStalker

Different slicers handle problems differently. The preview that shows what will actually be sent to the printer is really handy for looking for issues, and always worth a quick scroll through.


Atom-Alchemist

Yep, I confirmed the dark parts weren't going to print a tower (a problem I've had in lychee and corrupted models) so i just setup my mars pro to print the few missing pieces concurrently and so I have the missing parts printing right now (I had also missed the legs)


JojobaModels

push those pieces close got some inverted normals omnissiah bless

The art of packing a build plate takes time to master :)

I remember starting out leaving lots of space between everything. Now the last thing I printed was a 150% scale Terminun and I’ve got parts tucked in below other parts and things crammed in so close they’re realistically maybe ½ a mm apart just so I can do it all on one build plate.


A_Union_Of_Kobolds

I've been printing for months and I still can't bring myself to put parts below other parts on my plate. Having something supported off something else makes me nervous.


jdmgto

Not supported off something else, tucked in below it between its supports.


A_Union_Of_Kobolds

Yeah that's the trick I suppose


thinkfloyd_

Also just realised this was a haiku. :facepalm:


tdimaginarybff

Is this from the place that shall not be named? I’d love to print this out in pieces for terrain


bulgarianseaman

Let me know how this goes - I've tried printing this pre-supported model before and I had trouble getting things to fit together :( I might've over-cured it though - was pretty paranoid about curing everything 110% when I did my first few prints.


Atom-Alchemist

I printed in epax hard white (with a slight mixx of some siraya fast) there was some muddying, but it all fit together..ended up printed a crusader knight as well which is currently printing on both printers, so I'll have a update with both..soon.
