Minimal Supports in 3D Printing

When 3D printing, you are going to need supports, especially if you are printing an object in pieces.

Well, as I was getting this last piece for the Quasar Sabre done, the tip, I was showing the print progress to the customer, and his comment was on the minimal supports.

Well, here’t the thing – you don’t alway need huge supports to what you are printing – there are several factors you need to take into consideration, but in this case, a small (the size of a loonie up here in Canada) was all that was needed, and the print completed without an issue.
