Re: How to keep inner parts of letters?

Perhaps I don't fully understand. If you want to print e.g. an O, then you need a common support below it. Even if you can print it without any connection of the inner thing to the outside, the inside would fall off as soon as you remove it from the printer.

(I wonder why the info that spaces or accented characters is so persistent. Windows uses Unicode in all respects.) I know this. But don't you think it is a good idea to avoi...

Re: Frage zur Verrundung - Part Design

Das geht nicht so ohne Weiteres. Du musst dann selbst eine Unterbrechung einfügen, z.B. einen ganz schmalen Schlitz.
