But, rather than complaining that it cannot do what it was never designed to do, we will try to find ways to come CLOSE to simulating, through our own design techniques, the performance of more costly 3D printers.

Holes Revisted! Amazing Improvements in Both Horizontal and Vertical Hole Printing

Cubify 3D Printing Fans & Fun

A little experimentation showed me that I needed to print a hexagon or a pentagon (in the right orientation) to simulate a hole. When I first started printing with a 3D printer, just after the 1st Gen Cube was announced, I discovered that I couldn''t really achieve a clean hole in a vertical wall. That has all been changed with the latest Cubify Client software upgrade! There can be just the tiniest flattening at the top of larger holes.
