Failed print for micro pillars


#1

Hello. So I was given this file to print and have failed at my first attempt. As shown in the picture I oriented it on its side so it can fit in the workspace without shrinking it. These rods are very small so I am currently running a test with the piece standing on its base and just deleted the supports that were outside the workspace. Any tips?

Sorry to hear your print failed. You can’t print it sideways because all the rods are unsupported. The only real way to print it is with the base down on the build head and the rods facing up (you were correct to delete the supports under the base). If it’s too large to fit in the build area, you could try printing it in sections and gluing them together.
