How to deal with the overhangs?

Recommended Posts

Since I had Ultimaker2, the printed stuff always has the issue of over hangs. I'm so confused how to set software to get a smooth surface? I had tried to turn down the temperature to 185, and increase the volume of fan speed to 200%.

But it seems don't work.

Here is my setting in cure.

temperature: 200-205

layer height: 0.1

print speed: 40

travel speed: 120

If you want the best posible. Get a new fan cap (there are many for um2 to improve the symmetry of the air), print as @labern said and use blue tape with the bed off.

And if you want to go bananas, search on this forums for crossflow fan and design an adapter for um2 :)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
