Parts Containing an Opening or Hollow Area

Automated vs. Manual Depowdering

  • If you are using a ProJet® 460Plus or 660Pro with Automated Gross Depowdering, place the hollow side of a part facing down in the Build Bed to allow powder to evacuate during automated powder removal.
  • If you are using a ProJet® 160, 260C, 260Plus or 360 with Manual Gross Depowdering, place the hollow side of a part facing up in the Build Bed to allow easier access during manual powder removal.

Depending on how the part is imported into 3DPrint, you may need to use the Rotate feature to correctly orient the part. If the part is delicate, create a Fixture to give it extra support and additional protection during powder removal.
