3D print : generated support with MeshMixer

- Software

I've been using MeshMixer since the very first release to mix some 3D models together.
Since then, MeshMixer has become an Autodesk product and is still under development.

I decided to give the last release a try and to have a closer look at the new features and especially the ability to create supports for 3D printed models...

Recherche pour une structure de support

Dans pas mal de pièces dessinées par Gaël la structure de support est incluse.
C'est une idée que j'avais déjà explorée avec cet objet.

Doing so, it will deposit some stringing on the printed object.

Let's see if we can manage to find a solution for that...

My second print : let's try the support feature

- Print

I'd like to see how the Rapman is going to handle a more complex object with overhangs...
For that second print I choosed this 3D scan object because I like it :
