angle in 3D printing without support?

Recommended Posts

That's great

There is also an angle test Here that can help find the maximum angle you can print at. If you print it at different angles like your test will help show the best way to orientate your designs. But you need to do this one at a time as printing more then one adds heaps more cooling time.

You also now need to focus on getting rid of that Stringing.

yeah, that angle test showed a pretty nasty surface underneath on 70 degrees. 45 and even 60 was still pretty decent.

Meanwhile i tried testing vertical printing some more without supports, this time with a thicker model (2mm) ...it came out almost perfectly without a scratch!
