Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Slicing a flat bottom, part of Up and Running with 3D Printing.
…For some designs, you'll want a perfectly flat bottom, or you…might want to cut your design into one or more pieces.…In this video, we're going to use the cutting tools.…Click into a front view.…Now let's take a look at the coordinate icon in the lower left hand corner.…In our view, z is up, x runs left to right, and y is going back in space.…Go over to the Cuts panel…on the right hand side.…We want to cut a slice off the bottom, so let's try moving the z slider up.…You see this blue line?…This is a visualization of where we're going to cut the model.…
And if you orbit around a little bit, you…can see what it looks like on the other side.…So it's okay just to roughly place this at first.…We're going to go in and we're going to hit Execute Cut.…And now we have the opportunity…to fine tune this a little bit more.…I'm going to change this value to 0.1 mm, so we can move in small increments.…And then I'm just going to move this around until it's right in the right spot.…And so I'm just trying to cut off sort of these curvy pixels here.…
