I have a question regarding analysis of wall thickness on my model. The item is an eyewear frame to be printed in steel and plated.
The uploaded model is here: https://bit.ly/2F7wjLy
You should be able to see that insufficient thickness is reported around the hinge knuckles at the edge of the frame. The thickness is currently approximately 0.8mm.
This part of the frame will bear the forces of the temple arms but as it’s so small, I’m wondering if we will be able to “get away with it” as it is, or whether we should remodel the hinge to be more substantial.
I’ve read through your helpful documents but - as a newcomer to 3D printing - I would appreciate a little expert advice! I’m aware that there are other issues with the model. I’ll correct those in due course.
Thanks in advance
