Matrix supports

I have a jewellery model that I need to print. It has supports that I have made for it in Matrix. How do I set up this kind of model for printing? Do I ignore the warning that this model needs supports when I bring it into preform? I can’t find any supporting documentation on how to do this. I have a Form 2 and I’m using the purple direct Castable Wax.

Basically yes.

In 2.18.0, there’s a new “On Build Platform” checkbox in supports. If you use that it will compute printability using the supports from Matrix and won’t complain unless it really thinks there is a problem. With earlier versions of PreForm, you basically needed to ignore the warning because it didn’t understand what was going on.

Hi Mike,

Great thanks, I hadn’t noticed the checkbox. I’ll try it out today.
