Dear Blender community,
if I model a complex character bust in blender and want to print it in 3D… the bust consists of different objects, sticking into each other. To avoid wasted resin, I want to ask if you can suggest a good and easy way how to create just surface or hull of this bust. Like using a boolean and get rid of the inner parts. I hope you see what I mean at the attached picture. The green lines should diasapear in the print. So there will be only a surface of the cube and the cylinder.
Any Idea? Cant use the bool modifier, because the object is to dens.
Thanks in advance for any hint
I just purchased my first 3d printer about 3 months ago and having been going hog wild with it.
There was and is a learning curve I am going through as well.
As @joseph mentioned the 3d print tool add-on is a must have. The other one is the Bool tool add-on (also included in Blender) and the Union command is also your friend. The last tool is the remesh function. You do have to play with one or all the tools because they don’t always work or gives weird results at different resolutions.
Thanks a lot Josephhansen and OLG.
I am trying 3d print toolbox first. I asume thats the addon you are refering too.
Do you know a good forum to ask questions about the resin. I am using the waterwashable from elegoo and facing a lot of unwanted “dirty” spots at the surfaces. I doo wash the print about 2min and than set it unter UV light for 15min. So that should not causing this spots. Maybe it is this waterwashable resin… dont know.
Will attach an picture of my last print where you can see all these white spots …like dirt.
