Cutting STL files
January 12, 2014 11:02AM
hello, i am looking for someone to cut some stl files to fit a home 3D printer 225x15 (flashforge)
some of the files can fit in the build area but the base is not flat so, it will require cutting in half for a better print quality.

please contact me with your price after you check the files, some of them require no cutting its just i didn't want to delete them from the zip file.

regards

I use netfabb Studio Basic to cut STL files all the time!

On the right hand size adjust the z slider to the position that you want to cut and then press the "Execute Cut" and then the "Cut" bottom on the bottom right-hand side of the window.
On the top right hand side you can select cut 1 (or cut 2) and then export it as STL.

You can also perform multiple cuts.

What the basic version can not do directly is an angled cut e.g. 45° Z, BUT you can workaroud this by rotating the part 45° in X (or Y) and the doing a flat Z cut.

As an example see the Pirate Skull from Thingiverse below:
