how to add internal solid areas

I have a model in which I would like to add some custom areas where the print is solid, to beef up the sturdiness.  Specifically around screw holes.  Can this be done with the Slicer?  Do I have to do something to the model?  I am using Rhino for the modeling application.

Thanks

Best Answer by Swiss_Cheese:

You can do this with mesh modifiers, in slicer.

Swiss Cheese,

That is very encouraging.  Can you give me a pointer to any documentation for mesh modifiers in PrusaSlicer?

Thx

Apologies for being so vague,

I used to have tutorials, that I made, and would direct folks to, but Prusa deleted the files without warning, I'm making new ones and trying to set them up in a place where Prusa can't delete the content.

 

If you would care to provide a zipped up .3mf project file from Prusa slicer, I'd be happy to provide an example.

 

Note: If you post the project file it has to be zipped or the server will not allow it to be posted.

 

Good Luck, if you do need more help just ask, I have more to offer.

Swiss_Cheese,

Sorry for the late reply.  Thanks for your help.  I tried the mesh modifiers and they work great.  I look forward to your tutorials.  Maybe, you will post a link here when they are ready.
