Using the Grid Characteristic Feature Within PrintUP 3D Printing Software (Part 1)

channel letters grid characteristic

When it comes to 3d printing different channel letters, they can very quickly become unstable.

So that being said, there are a few ways we can go about strengthening the structure, the Gird being one of them.

right guys. In today's video, we're gonna be looking at the characteristic of the grid feature, and this will be within print up software. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on And we make short and easy to watch problem solving videos. And we also have data updates otherwise, back in the programme. So, like I mentioned in this mini series, we're gonna be looking at a few characteristic features which can be found here under the main menu. And the first one we're gonna be looking at is the grid feature. So in order to do that, I'm gonna quickly import a graphic. Let us find our actual a TZ a logo. Put this in and just leave all settings like we added before. Now, with this selected, I'm gonna zoom in here so you guys can see better. And then, um yeah, now, the idea of a grid is when you are printing these letter or channel letters, the bottom is not the strongest, so it can be quite weak. Maybe some of your letters, if they go really high, could try to fall in on each other. So now what this does is it throws a basic grid on the floor that, um, helps to keep the whole structure secure and in place. Now, to do that, make sure you have your object selected so you can select it. And then we go to characteristics or characteristic here on the actual main menu. And we say add grid. Now under the grid. We've got a few settings. We've got the actual grid height and grid density. Now, a recommended standard is a one millimetre grid height and 3% uh, grid density. So now if we say OK, yeah, you can see here at the bottom, it's added as a nice little grid. So now afterwards, when you're cutting this out, it's very simple and easy. It's not too many, uh, grid lines. So if you're up there, um, intensity, you're gonna get a lot of little grids. I'll quickly show you, so we'll add one. I add again. And then let's make this maybe about 20% just so you can see the difference. Say OK and then you can see we've got a really fine grid over here now so you can go that way. But it's gonna be way more work in the end to clean everything up now. Same thing with the grid you can simply just if you don't want it anymore. Let's say, um, you've got your own support. You can just go grid de le grid. And there you go. You no longer have a grid. So it's a handy little feature of this. If you want to make sure your structure stays intact and then, yeah, that is it on the grid. But before you head on to the next feature, if we go here to You guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and you can also isolate your search on the top or right. If you do not, however, find the training videos you're looking for, just simply go, Yeah, request a training video, fill in the mini form, and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks guys for watching and cheers
