3D Printing Wizard
Export for 3D Printing Wizard has been introduced with 3D-Coat Professional version 4.7.
The main goal of this Export Wizard is to make printed model as precise to your design as possible.
On the image you can see the windows with several settings. One of the known problems of 'extrusion'-type 3d printers is bottom layers melting and general widening.
With the options offered 3D-Coat tries to eliminate those problems. In addition to that you can print a support bottom pattern with which your 3d model will stay steady on the ground.
Please read hints carefully, and keep in mind that you need to discover what settings work best for your particular 3d printer!
And, please, make sure you're aware of 3d models for 3d printing design principles.
Important! Heating up ABS plastic (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) during extrusion in 3D Printing produce fumes of poisonous acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene. EPA has classified butadiene as a known human carcinogen. Acrylonitrile and styrene are both toxic and could be a human carcinogen. EPA has classified acrylonitrile as a probable human carcinogen. That is why it is hazardous to use ABS in 3D Printing. Therefore we recommend using bioplastic PLA produced from corn or dextrose.
