Brand new Zortrax owner reporting in (had it for about a week now) and so far i love the machine! i do have an issue though.
I am trying to print this thing: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:193814 and i can't seem to get it to do what i want. Obviously i don't want any infill, so I am stuck with either Shell or Mesh. I haven't yet actually tried printing with infill, but z-suite says it will take longer and use more filament than when using mesh, so i guess it will actually use infill.
When i choose shell, it prints fine (even with 1 layer) but it doesn't print the bottom.
When i choose Mesh, it will print the bottom, but two issues arise:
- It prints a cap on the hole. That is not too bad, because i can just cut it out. However, when i open the STL in meshmixer or solidworks, the cap is not there so it shouldn't print it.
- It prints some areas a lot thicker (where the rigdes are). This doesn't look as nice when light is shining through.
Am i missing something? Is it even possible to print a shell and have the bottom print as well?
I am using Z-suite 0.9.5 and firmware 0.0.5
