    Mar 14, 2018, 9:47 AM - Iron Man 3D Printing help #1

    Hey Guys and Gals,

    Hopefully, Im posting this in the right place but if not ill move it. I bought parts of an Iron Man model from do3d.com and I'm drawing a blank on the best way to print the palm and back of the hand pieces. I'm not sure how to orient the pieces correctly on the build plate, the best way to slice, etc... I've seen many Iron Man builds on here and I hope someone has some advice for me. Thanks in advance.

    Best I have are these but what you want to do is(you might know this already) bring the model into a program called meshmixer use plane cut and cut horizontally on the model save it as keep both parts then use seperate shells and export each part seperately then bring it into your 3d printing software and print away
