As one of my buddies used to say: "We get too soon old and too late smart".

After a lot more gray hair — actually that's the only kind left now; it just get's to be a lighter shade of gray.
It isn't that I hadn't read the warnings about the "special features" in SketchUp it was just a matter of this not showing up. So I got one print of the first design with a lot of "supports" where there should have been walls and infill.
So I revamped the design, made it a block instead of the fancy sphere design.

Sure enough the same problem above the lower pocket for the fire wood. X_X X_X

Finally figured out that the slicer sees the SU walls as paper thin and the standard wall thickness in CURA was just too thin hence the screw-up. Stipulate 2mm wall thickness and away she went.

Mind you just under 13 hours of run time was the other :-o :-o I just checked that it would get by the problem section and went to bed.

Looks like I'll be reading the CURA manual in addition to get my toes wet with FreeCad.

Supports removed, but cleaning up the burrs will happen later.

The fancier one is a-building but I won't stay up till midnight!

If you continue to struggle with this one, its another good candidate to slice, flop over, print in 2 parts and join together. That way I don,t think you would need much, if any, support. Part one could be the oven, flipped to have its back on the print bed and the second the chimney as it is, but dropped to the print bed, could even leave a vertical hole in the chimney for the smoke unit!

I can almost taste the quattro formaggi from here.

Thanks Jim!
The blocky one printed OK, it's the fancy one with all the curves that is a headache.
I take the day off from all this "crud" (SWMBO approved it) and do some relaxing.
Still too cold for XC skiing, so I can't even work off my frustration.

BTW all the "crud" gets filed in the big round one. ;) :-o Any suggestions how to recycle that stuff? :-? :-?

Thanks Mike,

It will have to do for the time being.
I'm also considering an addition to the "Beizli", to place most of the cooking implements in.

I put mine with the rest of the plastic which is collected for re-cycling. Not sure what happens when it leaves here - but - apart from specialist filament, I use rPLA which works just as well and makes me feel better about it! I guess you would be able to source it more locally - https://www.filamentive.com/product/rec ... ours-500g/

Thanks Jim,

I'll do that, the crud can keep company with the empty filament spools.

PizzaOven6 just started running. We found #5 a bit too massive, but it was a very good print.

Now back to the regular program, today it's clearing the driveway etc.
The weather is warming, tomorrow could be the first XC day in almost two weeks. 8-| 8-|

I appreciate all the good advise coming my way regarding 3D printing — oh ... actually I appreciate ANY good advice! #-o

The Pizza Oven is finally done! Iteration 8 is considered close enough, printed well with white PETG.

Giovanni (with his beer) and Luigi, who used to work at a garage, are discussing the merits of "let's have another pizza" . Luigi isn't quite dressed for his new job. He'll get a white shirt, white hat and the gloves will also be suitable for food prep.

Print took 14 hrs, 0.1mm layers using PETG.

I don't want to sound insulting, but Giovanni looks as if he's had enough pizza already :))
