Make Solid

Make Solid is a feature that generates a solid base for a single rectangular surface. We recommend generating a solid base when printing GIS (Geographical Information Systems) files.

  1. Open a GIS file in 3DPrint and select the part.


  1. Select Tools > Make Solid.
  2. In the Base Thickness dialog, enter a value for the base thickness and press OK.


  1. 3DPrint generates the base. Because a solid base is heavy, it is recommended that you justify the part placement to the bottom of the Build Bed, so it is resting on the Build Bed platform and not on powder.
