Checking the wall thickness.
One of the most common errors with 3D models that are prepared for production preparation are components with walls that are too thin. While in the digital world it is possible to create surfaces without considering their thickness, in the physical world this leads to a variety of problematic results.
Thin elements, especially when merged, can either break, warp, or not provide the durability required to support other parts of the model. For this reason, we advise the user not to design models with elements less than 1 mm thick.
Correct 3D model resolution.
3D printing is based on the interpretation of the mesh representation of objects. This is a series of triangles or other polygons connected by their common edges or corners. When exporting the 3D model and setting triangulation, it is important to set the number of triangles correctly during output:
- Too many triangels can limit or unnecessarily slow down the 3D printing process.
- If too few triangles are used, the result will be a coarse or poor quality model.
- A small outlook.
