Creating a mold and interrupting production to test a plastic part is not usually feasible. Learn about what to do first, go to the body, right-click, and select save as STL.
- [Narrator] Creating a mold and interrupting production … to test the plastic part, … is not usually feasible. … One of the earliest uses of additive manufacturing, … was to create a 3D print of parts, … to be able to do a hands-on design review. … Instead of trying to keep up with all the changes … that are happening in the rapidly developing world … of additive manufacturing, … Fusion 360 takes a slightly different approach … to creating 3D prints. … Focusing primarily on creating the mesh data, … that will be transferred to the printer. … To start the 3D print process, … go to the file menu and select 3d print. … You'll begin by selecting the body that you want to print. … You can choose to preview a mesh, … you can choose from macro level quality refinement, … with low being 16,600 triangles and high … being a 114,000 triangles. … Let's go with medium. … But let's take a look at the refinement options we have. … We can set a custom surface deviation, … change the normal deviation, …
