Summary

Greetings Starfighter! You have been recruited by the Star League to defend the Frontier against Xur and the Ko-Dan armada. Get ready! Prepare for blast-off.

Instructions

Split it in halves to print without support (Thanks, tbuser!)

If you're looking for this feature in Netfabb, it's right there as soon as you open your STL in the "Cuts" area on the right... move the appropriate slider for the axis you want to split, and a line will appear.

Thank you thank you. :-) I thought I would have to make this model (actually started to) but you have already, again thank you... printing soon! :)

Welcome to Rylos!

I've seen some models (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3006http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... is a great example) that are sliced to allow printing with less/no support. Is there a tutorial for this process? I'd like to make larger
&
amp; less support-intensive models, but so far I haven't come up with a really clean way to split them. I'd read somewhere on thingiverse recently that someone was using Netfabb to do this, but I wasn't able to figure it out :(

Use OpenSCAD then you can also add 2 (or 3) 3mm holes to put filament in to align the parts perfectly for glueing.

This post (by me) on the Makerbot blog goes through the process:

It really is easy.

That was the article I was looking for!

Love the linked bio models, as well

Netfabb makes really simple slices easy. For more complicated things, openscad can be really useful (especially because you can then make small modifications to the model parts at the same time to make it easier to print) Unfortunately, openscad often has problems importing stl files due to winding order errors.

Wow, I feel completely dumb now... I had been looking at the "Slices" function in netfabb... Didn't see the "Cuts" slide-bar that was right under my nose. Thanks! This feature should help a bunch!
