What are modifiers?

Modifiers allow you to use the geometry of one object to define an area in 3D space that will use different settings for printing compared to the rest.

How to use them?

1. Import two or more STL’s

2. In the left side menu, scroll to the bottom and drag n’ drop the file from ‘Objects’ to ‘Modifiers’

3. Click on the settings icon next to the name of the file to adjust the infill density

4. Choose the infill density – higher infill will result in a stronger object at the cost of material usage and print time

5. Choose from the 13 infill types available and the infill line width

6. Place the models in the print bed in a way that they intersect each other

7. Click on Prepare and use the layer view to check if the infill is correct

8. Click the Export button and you are good to go!
