printing good quality and slow


Recommended Posts

Posted · printing good quality and slow

I want to know how to make the ultimaker 2 print slow with out getting the filament bitten in the filament feeder to get good quality I´ve noticed that depending on the code it may not stick to the heating bed and not really all times are heating bed calibration, also noticed that it goes too fast around corners or small radius parts

here are some samples

looks ok but take a closer look to the bottom

Ive tried many ways and I have noticed also the direction of the layers have a great influence on how does the final print comes out

same figure could look bad or worst depending on the position .

what would be your setting for pla going unde 30 mm per seccond? and what about corners?

    you can slow acceleration under the motion settings on the printer, this can help. I have mine set to 1200

    you can also adjust jerk if needed.

    when printing slow adjust the nozzle temp as low as possible to help improve the quality. at 30mm/s I print at 190deg nozzle and 50deg bed at 0.1 layer height.

    Not sure about your adhesion problem though. A thin layer of glue should be fine for that print but printing on painters tape helps with things like the toes if you don't want brim.

    Here are a couple of my frogs that were printed quite slow
