help please

Recommended Posts

I have tested the models that come with ultimaker2 and printed a few codes but not sure why I just cant configure my 3d scans to be printes properly, could someone please send me a gcode or a model to leech its configurations for fine printing?

If you use Cura, just use the Expert-menu to Switch to quickprint. Then choose the High Quality settings. Those settings work fine, except when printing with obscure filament like copper or transparent.

To be sure, also choose Pint support structure. This supports "hanging" parts.

If scans do not come out of the printer properly, maybe the scans are the issue. You could share some images here so that forum member can shine some light on that matter.

If it does not stick in corners, you probably do not use any glue on the glass plate.

Try any average Pritt stick – i use Pelikan from Action stores but itcan be any inferiour glue stick – and rub it on the glass plate before printing. When glass has cooled down, you can clean the glass plate with a soft spunge or cloth with cold water. real easy.

Can you show images of the print results?

If you paste the settings below into a text file settings_file.ini , you have settings that work perfectly for me.

Then set Cura in the Expert menu to full settings. Finaly choose File -> Open Settings and choose the settings_file.ini you just saved.

HI I am using the glue that comes with the printer, calibrated with the sheet of paper, and couldnt find this that you said " Then set Cura in the Expert menu to full settings. Finaly choose File -> Open Settings and choose the settings_file.ini you just saved."

I couldn't see your file on the previous page so I don't know what your object looks like. But looking at the video, you're using too much glue. Use some wet paper and spread that glue out all over your glass. When the water dries you should have a very thin film of glue on your glass.

Secondly, you may want to raise the bed slightly so that the plastic is pressed onto the platform harder.
