3DPrintTech is a CAD plugin for model splitting and nesting for efficient batch printing. It helps the user to print objects larger than build volume of a 3D printer. App splits the large model in small components as per your printer settings. It also creates the connectors to help you glue the components to make your original large model. User can define various parameters of splitting.
User has an option to scale the model. Also to get separated view of split parts can use Explode.
3DPrintTech has unique feature 3D Packing. 3D Packing helps user to combine many small components in one single printing process with clearance. This helps user to save time, energy and money.
3DPrintTech also provides the option of Export to save the split parts or nested parts as stl files which can be directly use for printing.
Also user can do all these processes for his/her own customized printer too by adding it to the existing list of printers….
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
