Once you determine a model’s size and position in the workspace, you can change and adjust all parameters influencing a model’s quality and durability, such as the layer thickness, the type and density of infill or the fan speed. The Print settings menu is divided into Normal and Advanced settings. This part of the Z-SUITE 2 manual will walk you through all available options for the FDM and UV LCD technology. The remaining parts of the manual are available at: Basic Features, Working with Models, Support Adjustments, Tips & Tricks.

Model Analysis (FDM)

Z-SUITE 2 is able to check whether a model has walls which are too thin to be printed and mark them in the preview. In the Print settings step, click the last icon on the left bar. Select Verify and the program will carry out the analysis.

If after the analysis your model has sections marked red, it means that there are walls thinner than 0.4 mm and, due to the minimum wall thickness requirements of Zortrax printers, may not be printed at all.

Once you generate the .zcode/.zcodex, those non-printable structures won’t be included in the preview. If you encounter problems with too thin walls but you don’t want to give up on 3D printing that particular model, use 3D modeling software to correct the model’s structure prior to loading it into Z-SUITE 2. Using this option is optional – if you’re sure your piece is well-designed, you can move on to the next step of preparing a model.
