Abstract: When printing a plate (dish) using a 3D printer, normally, so-called “support” material, which is disposed after printing, is required to be printed and to support the plate. However, try to create thin plates without using such superfluous material! Some devices are required to print them, but it is not so difficult.
This article was revised and published as an English paper: 3D-Printing Plates without “Support”
