Using SOLIDWORKS to Help in 3D Printing Thin Structures

CATI Tech Notes

An obstacle we sometimes encounter when 3D printing with a polyjet printer is if the wall thickness is too small, the waterjet that cleans off the support material will also remove the main material. An example of this was trying to print off a Star Wars Tie Fighter.
