Rhino mac and 3d printing


(Papaarch) #1

i did a cone with the top and bottom open and cura is showing close top and close bottom. In rhino everything seems perfect how can i verify in rhino

Thx


#2

If you exported a simple cone surface with no thickness, it is possible that Cura closed it automatically… You can’t 3D print an object that has 0 thickness…

Thx

But what is the best way to double the surface in rhino5


#4

With a cone, you might try OffsetSrf (solid) or perhaps a Scale2D of the cone plus top and bottom PlanarSrfs…
