Hi, guy’s, seeing and this time. I’ve been printing the Batman Beyond statue from my good pal Tarek Sabre [Music] [Music]. So we chatting with Tarek. He mentioned that a lot of people struggle knowing how to slice prepare for Prince and his statues and so. I thought it would make sense if I put together a video showing. You know the way I would do it. I’m not saying that this is the only way I’m not saying that this is particularly the right way, but it’s the way I do it so just to give people a starting point to to come up with their own technics. Nobody’s beyond mistakes and certainly not me, and that definitely made drops a bit of a Colunga when I was slicing this originally, so the first part I did was the that’s also in the head and sliced that at 33% scale, but it was gonna fit fine, thought that looks to be as if it’s going to be the biggest part. Fortunately, the the legs are actually longer, and when I came to try and fit them on the printed, it turned out that 33% would not fit so backing sliced again scaled down 25% And then printed like that now. I will go back. I’m in the middle of trying to upgrade to see item. Once I’ve done that I will be out to go back and finish this one because I do love it, but for the purposes of finishing the model and I’m quite pleased with this. I’m for doing this video. Obviously, I decided to to go it down from 33% to 25% So obviously you import the model and it needs scaling. I sold it to the wrong scales. It turned out next, used the light flat function. And then you can tweak that if you want to change the angle slightly about. I just got a best guess, and we’re using the automatic layin out of supports there. And obviously now I’m going around and removing individual support columns. I tend to increase the size of the support columns. When I’m doing something like this, You can see, I’m taking away a further amount, and now I’m using the add function to just add some back in that two to give exactly what one from a support, okay. I’m I’m pretty happy with that. The way it is so now we we prepare it for printing. So we’ll actually do the slicing, and you can see there that. I’ve selected it so you can see they print itself and their supports all a separate course. So you could probably see there. I used simplify 3d to to slice that. I’m a fan of the of the ability to remove individual columns of support using simplify 3DS interface. And and that means you. Can you know you can really fine-tune the level of support that you felt on there? However, when once I’ve done that, I obviously, you know, kind of sat back and the usual thing to do with this sort of point is to think. What would tom jackson there? What Tom Jackson would do would be to say ian. Get rid of simplify 3d and use Prussia Slicer. So that’s what I did. So as with you the slicer, you need to import the model, you need to scale it, and then you use the like functionality to to get it approximate the way you need it. You can always rotate again more so now. I’m adding a support enforcer. I’m using the the box, which I can then scale to any size. I want so the way the enforces work when you select it so that you want support only worthy supporting forces, are it? It does exactly that so building those boxes there and within those boxes that is where the support will be, it won’t put support where it doesn’t need it, so you’ll not get support supporting fresh air and the last box, so in this case. I’m just using the four boxes, one to support the chin, a couple for the keys for the arms and then one right at the bottom, and that’s what we’re going to use to to stand the model on. Make sure you select the option to only put supports where the support forces are and then. I just check all your settings. I like to put a rough couple of layers of roughed just so that you can actually get a little bit more better. Degen, underneath where that support is. And there you see the sliced results, obviously, once you fully slice in. Then it’s time to head to the printer. [MUSIC] As always when it comes to remove the supports, you do have to be careful of any fiddly parts and make sure that you you get that cleaned up without removing any of the detail of the printer itself.
