📺 In the video above a way to print bigger objects really fast is explained.
There are different reasons to use the slicing software to make your 3d printing practice more sustainably.
With the slicing software, you can actually simulate the 3d print and thus eventually find out about flaws in your design, e.g. overhangs that you did not consider or similar.
- saving material
By making educated choices on the material density e.g. in the infil, the material used can be reduced.
- saving time
The same counts for the printing time and thus the time the printer is running and using electricity.
- better print quality
With the right printer settings, the print quality can be improved – leading to less failed prints.
