For various reasons that have been discussed in other threads, the optimal printing position for my Irish whistle heads is 10deg off from vertical, towards the airblade. This means that the windway ceiling face (3) needs to be supported in order to print properly.
Thanks to another forum member, I was able to apply custom supports using BC9 Creator. This Cthulhu-looking mess is what I came up with. It’s printed fine so far but I get really nervous cutting off these supports with my little section of jeweler’s saw. Any pitting of this face can instantly ruin the instrument, and if it breaks off on the corner, not even my UV nail filler can save it.
I’m just curious whether I’m missing something obvious here, or if there’s a simpler way to achieve the same effect.
As always, I’m very grateful to the supportive and knowledgeable forum members here! This community is so awesome.
