This is the second in a series of folding robots to prepare for 4D printing. It was inspired by robot called "Robby" which appeared in movie "Forbidden Planet(1956)" and designed. This is the kind of "3D Fan art". My imagination has been added so it is difficult to see the original shape before folding it. Unlike the first, we designed a new structure to create a circular body. The transparent ...
While one can easily generate a brim in PrusaSlicer or SuperSlicer, sometimes it's a bit overkill. Instead, learn how to generate Brim Ears with SuperSlicer (Mouse Ears) on just those troublesome corners of your print!
Brim rework: many more options (inside, outside only, 'ears', per object) Some new seam options, to help hide them. Built-in calibration prints; Built-in object generation script; Can join perimeters into a big one to avoid travel moves. Many other little options and corrections (like the filled concentric pattern).
I set up the files on my Prusa i3 MK3S using a 0.3 mm layer height and the first prints came out great, apart from the arms of the frame which kept detaching from the buildplate and causing messy layers on the pegs for the elastic, so to fix that I came up with some brim ears in PrusaSlicer. Prusa RC2 frames printed. Prusa RC3 with added brim ears.
Enable support and search for the brim options and select "brim under supports" and the "zik zak" support pattern. If you don´t need or want supports inside the model itself, turn on the support mode option to "over build plate" Now your model is 3mm in the air, supported by a full area brim and basic support to hold it up.
