How to best support model with very thin walls?

Hi Friends, novice here.

My question is how to best set up supports for a model
like this that is thin all over. It’s a body for a remote
control car. I appreciate any input.
Thank You So Much!
(it’s hopefully a Birthday gift for my Brother)

Is this a single part? Do you have a STL can you share that? With no image of a printable part I can’t offer suggestions

agree with @kitedemon , you may be able to take care of most of the supports just with the orientation of the model. But hard to make that call without seeing it.

Hi Friends, thank You for Your help.
Attached is the STL i’m working from.
To reiterate, my goal is to print a shell
of this for use on an RC rig…many
problems to be solved in the attempt,
but being a total 3DP newbie, my first
learning hurdle is “simply” how to print
this shell successfully, and with “easily”
removable supports?

( after this, i’ll follow up with never-ending
questions, so maybe DON’T answer? )

i can provide the STL but i don’t know how to upload it for viewing?


If you can post a link of PM me and I’ll send you my email to send the file. With out seeing the actual file it is all guess work.

Email sent.

Hi @kevk

Nothing wrong with your post I just deleted it so your email is out there publicly.
I see Kitedemon already sent you an email.

@kevk did you send an email? I have not seen one.



So Very Cool, Jason, THANK YOU for the support and security*!*
