Hello,
I am looking for people who have experience with 3d printing. I have a few questions:

  • Is there a minimum thickness needed to get a 3d printed model solid?
  • Did someone happen to try to print a light fitting/lampholder in 3d? And did you succeed?
  • Which sorts of files can I import in fusion without losing the ability to change and scale the object. And are there any tips on which site i can do that?

  1. I design for 1mm minimum part thickness. Or if you do a single wall ‘vase’ mode, 0.5mm thickness could work, that might be too thin for your application.
  2. I don’t know, look at Thingiverse, YouMagine and other design sharing web sites. I think there are several to be found.
  3. STEP for sure. Fusion 360 documents should tell you this.

Normaal gesproken zijn er 2 tot 3 lagen nodig om een waterdichte plaat te krijgen. Afhankelijk van hoe dik de lagen zijn, kan de totale dikte varieren. Bepaalde printers kunnen lagen printen van 0.05mm. In dit geval zou je totale solide plaat dus maar 0.15mm zijn. Maar dit is dus eerder een film-laagje dan een 3d print.
