There is a decency warning with the first photo, it's just the way it printed.....
The second photo shows the one on the left, which is what I have come up with and the one on the right is Rik's setting, or my interpretation of it, sorry Rik.
Again on Rik's also, one of the rivets came off really easy, I guess though that is because I didn't have it on the main body of the print.
Anyway onwards and upwards, hopefully.
Maybe the handlebars need to have supports, so I will try it again with the supports on, although is the a way of just having supports where you need them and not covering all of the print
Close up, they do look a bit rough, well a lot. But from a distance they look ok. I don't know how much it cost to print them, I only used about 1 meter of filament and it took about 45 minutes approximately.
I forgot to write down the time and material used....
2 options for this in Flashprint that I'm aware of:
Put supports in manually by going into 'supports' and instead of clicking on the "A" for Auto Supports (at the top) use the '+' for Add (on the left) to add individual supports - once you have selected this you can click on your model wherever you want to add supports.
Put supports in automatically in the usual way, then use the 'x' for Delete (on the left) to remove individual supports - once you have this selected then any supports you click on will be removed.
I will give it ago after I have done the Grandsons phone case. It's taking 6hrs to do...Mind you it's 6.5 inches, so it has to be tilted....
