Hello and Welcome!.
I aim to create a group that helps each other with making awesome prints for all of us to enjoy. I will help in anyway I can to help you design item for printing from simple modeling advice to FEA. If we have enough members then the community will make this self perpetuating and overall a much more enjoyable experience.
Feel free to ask anything that you might need help with as there is always something new to learn.
I hate to be a bother in this group but i am having lots of trouble with this model im making i was wondering if anyone will be able to help me or at least point me in the right direction.
For some reason almost anything i model in blender has walls to thin for cura to pick up. What should I do?
I've designed a box to hold a gas soldering iron, a lighter, tweezers, a bit of solder, a sponge, etc.
I've designed it from a solid block and extruded-cut whatever space I needed from a median plane. Now, I want to split it in halves to have a bottom and a lid. That's not an issue. What I need help with, though, is designing a locking mechanism.
Seeing how the lid has deep cuts, I don't think I can use hinges and open it an an angle. So, two completely separate parts, maybe two keyed connections ? And two locking "flaps"?
I'm no product designer and I'd like some guidance to learn the best practice
