Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing the base, part of Creating a Captive Sphere with OpenSCAD.
- So here's the problem.…We've created our sphere inside our hollowed-out cube,…but we need to make this base large enough…to sit on the print pad to make the whole thing printable.…The first thing we can do is to make the sphere…a little bit larger, so rather than having it…as a radius of 15, let's change that to 16 millimeters.…When we preview it, you can see that it…now projects far enough below the cube.…
The next step will be to flatten off the space…to give it a more printable surface,…and we'll look at that next.…
