    The attached image is a screen capture from Meshmixer. The zebra stripes are reversed normals, while the blue lines are non-manifold portions of the model. There are so many things wrong with that...

    I couldn't let this one go, especially since curious aardvark, our fearless leader provided me with a few brain nudges, probably without realizing it. Even worse, I can't recall what the nudges...

    I created a $fn=4 cylinder with d1, d2 and eyeballed the entire set of dimensions and translates until it fit inside the existing tower. I prefer parametric modeling in OpenSCAD, but I knew this was...

    This link may be helpful. The slicer is Flashprint, a program which converts your imported STL file and creates the print file based on the settings you use (or the default settings).

    What slicer are you using? The "base" can be either a raft (some thickness) or a brim or skirt.

    I popped your model into both Meshmixer and into Lychee Slicer, both of which have hollowing features. The results from both were nearly the same, an inner shell of 2.5 mm (arbitrary choice) with an...

    If the model is as you describe, sliced in this manner, there's something wrong with the model.

    Take a look into settings, ensure you have selected Advanced from the upper right.

    Print Settings, Output options.

    Is the box for Individual Objects selected? That should be off unless you are...

    As a hobbyist, I'm not in this for the money. I very much appreciate advice from someone more knowledgeable than I. I've found that postage within the US is already jacked up and I can't imagine what...

    @curious aardvark, as a moderator, do you respond to flagged/reported posts that are clearly spam? I've sent a few off that seem to be single post new users with posting material unrelated to the...

    Also consider to use one of the many bridging test models available on the 'net. I'd imagine that Prusa has some in its library, and I know for certain that Thingiverse does as well.

    @curious aardvark, as I've been working on this project from the point of creating the split files, etc, other problems have arisen. The individual members of the dish and tower are too fine to be...

    That's a curious file. I also was unable to process the file in a productive manner. A bit of research shows that the F3Z format is a Fusion 360 archive file that references other files, but does not...

    If you can post the file or send it in a direct message, I can take a look at it. I've not seen the .F3Z format previously, but that's not saying much. If it opens in Fusion 360, it should be...
  17. For window areas that do not span great distances...

    For window areas that do not span great distances (think window lintel compared to garage door size), you should be able to get away without using supports. It's called bridges or bridging. I'm not...

    As you've discovered, the limit switch was not being properly triggered and the stepper motor for the x-axis was continuing to move (not-move) until you powered off.

    If you shrink the model to 125 mm length, the dish may become problematic, as the individual strut components will become proportionally smaller.

    I have no experience with using a service,...

    If you aren't in a screaming hurry (and are US based), I can probably print it for you. I'd print the ship in PLA and the dish in semi-flexible resin, to reduce breakage. I haven't done a cost...

    I can't read the wall thickness in the posted image, but that might not be a concern. I see the layer thickness is 0.28 mm, which is very close to the maximum for a 0.4 mm nozzle. Have you tried a...

    If you think the filament has collected moisture, you may be able to mitigate that by dehydrating it in a source of heat. I purchased a simple food dehydrator and chopped away the internal food trays...

    I've cut the ship in half and removed the dish at the original location (I hope), which would allow you to print with the smallest amount of supports. It might be necessary to sand away some of the...

    You are correct about the borked. Pretty amazing failure on the model, but Windows 10 has 3DBuilder with a surprisingly good repair facility. First photo shows Meshmixer's Analysis/Inspector...

    If you are getting a slower feed through the nozzle, your extruder is slipping or your nozzle temperatures are too low. One of the methods I've seen for setting e-steps is to make a mark on the...
