Welcome!

by ScottCher

Just a short note to welcome you to the Autodesk Inventor group on Thingiverse. My hope is to share information about tips, tricks and techniques for using Inventor for additive manufacture of designs. I know I've learned a bit in the last few months that have helped me produce more successful prints and I'm hoping to pass that knowledge along and learn from others as well.

Converting STL to Base Feature

by mrduncan

Once I have converted a STL file into a Base Feature file in Inventor, the measurement values are correct but the units are in inches rather than mm. How do I convert the IPT file from Imperial to metric?

Cura Measurement Conversion Problem

by chandler11

When I create something in Inventor in inches I have to make something, for example, 25 inches long for it to be 25 millimeters in Cura. Is there any way I can make something in millimeters, in Inventor, and it come out in the same amount of millimeters in Cura?

Getting my Inventor design to print properly

by Bezulba

I designed this bracket to fit my Rasberry PI Zero W on top of the mosfet/motherboard bracket: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2754729

Yet i have problems with the design. The cylinder that slides over the bracket will not print properly at the bottom. Now it's not a major issue, i just file away the crappy print layers and it fits fine but it's not clean and that's bothering me.

What i tried:

  1. I added a solid layer to the supports in Simplify3D settings. Didn't improve it
  2. Enlarged the cylinder with an extra flange so the slicer has more room to place supports. Didn't help that much. I did get more support plastic but still not enough to make it print right.

Is this a pure design flaw that i need to fix or is it a printing issue?
