On Simplify3D > 'Separate Connected Surfaces' and create a separate process for each corresponding section

For the Layer Height, I first printed with 1 shell but it turned out better/stronger with 2 shells. The first try had some stringing, but adjusting the start points to the back of the print seemed to resolve that.

For Bridging, I slowed the speed down to 90% and set extrusion width to 90%. May have printed even better with a slightly slower speed/lower width.

Great thing, thanks!
How much material each one 'costs'?

Hmm, this is hard to answer because it will depend on how you're printing it (doing it yourself vs. sending it out) ..I'm not sure how to answer this, sorry!

These are FANTASTIC teaching models! Thank you

Glad you like them, thank you! :]

What printer was used? Wish mine was that good. I'm lucky if I make it to 40 degrees overhang.

These were printed on a Craftbot Plus

I do not have Simplify3D software. Is there a way to do the "Separate Connected Surfaces" in the MakerBot software? If not, any suggestions for a free slicer?


I believe you can split objects into parts using Slic3r and assign individual parameters to the split parts but I haven't tested this out personally yet.

is there a reason shell thicknes infill persentage and infill style are all solid boxes

They are solid because you need to assign the layer height/infill styles/infill percentages/shell settings in the slicer. I used Simplify3D to do separate the sections and assign unique processes to each corresponding section. Hope that helps

Thank you for these beautiful products! Somehow when I load these products in Simplify3D all the texts are mirrored/inversed. This isn't the case when I open the files in Slic3r. Anyone have a solution or any idea as to how this is possible? Thank you!

fixed it!

Had to inverse Y-axis!

Awesome! I was just going to comment and ask if there was any axis settings you could try. Glad it worked!

Thank you, I need these for reference! My only question, is there a way to slice them in cura?

Hi, as far as I know, splitting an object into parts was not yet reimplemented in Cura 2. You have have to split it in software like Meshmixer and print them as infill meshes.

Thanks for the reply, I will do just that, thanks!!

Hey greate work!
Sorry for my bad english.
But if you forget at layer height the mm notes. Hope you understand what i mean.

Can you update that?

Hi, thanks for letting me know! I've re-uploaded the layer height model with the mm notes.
