Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Designing for reality, part of Up and Running with 3D Printing.
…You need to know more than 3D modeling to make a successful 3D print.…When you take a file from the digital realm into reality, there…are practical concerns surrounding feasibility that…are important to keep in mind.…Each material and printer has its own thresholds.…And in this video, I'll go through some of the key concepts that are important.…The concept of manifold geometry that we talked about…earlier, covers some of the basic issues.…Designs need to have volume and can't have intersecting geometry.…
Beyond that, remember the basic rules of physics.…Designs need to be balanced.…They may need an added base, or they might fall over.…Service bureaus often provide design guidelines for each material…technology they use, to help you understand the capabilities and…create designs that are printable.…Smaller specialty print shops may help you…identify a material based on your existing design.…And these terms can also be found in some spec sheets for some printers.…These are some of the terms you might encounter.…
