Change printing Axe


#1

Hello everybody,

I bought ZOTRAX M200 recently and i have a problem to printing a cylinder.

In this file, you can see the object in the horizontal position, i would like place object in the verticale position.

It’s possible do this in the Z-Code software? Or i do that in my software of CAO?

Hi tflo89,

It is in the Z-Suite manual. Look for "Rotating a model". https://support.zortrax.com/software-firmware/

It's very easy to turn your model 90 ° on the X axis. See photo below.

But your model should be modified : your propeller is too thin on its edge (red parts on the model).

 

You will also have to place a lot of supports to hold your propeller. These supports will be very long to remove.

If I were you, I would change if possible the general shape of the propeller

Thanks for your help.

I was able to replace the object according to my wish.

I’m going to thicken the tip of the propeller because this idea of ​​propeller come from another model almost similar. Z-Code was able to make the piece easily and cleanly.

I will give it a try and look at the result.
