Oversized model

Sat Jan 05, 2019 2:00 pm

If one of the dimensions of my model is larger than the print bed is there a tool in Simplify 3D that will break it down into printable "chunks" or do I need to do that in my design program before importing it to the slicer?

The bottom of the virtual build plate can be used as a cutting tool. Anything positioned below it will not be printed. For anything more complicated than a planar cut, you should use your design software.
