Hi all… So things are progressing with my playing around with Shapr… What I’m attempting to do at this point and part of my difficulty is wrapping my brain around how to do this… I want to do something like a dovetail slot in a piece I’m working on. I’ve got the 6mm slot defined but not sure what the best approach is to create the dovetail…What I’m ultimately trying to do is to have two pieces that will slide into each other to be temporarily connected as a single item, hence the desire for a dovetail which would lock the two together through a sliding mechanism.
In this case this will NOT be used for wood but for plastic parts 3D printed. I’m attaching a picture of the channel I’ve created in the main part. It’s 6mm wide and about 65mm long. The 2nd piece should have a matched mating surface that will slide down the length of the channel and NOT fall out. The only way to remove the two parts from each other is to slide them apart again. Hopefully I didn’t completely confuse you… Thx in advance for any direction that you can provide…!
