Yoda print on a 2 day old ultimaker....

Recommended Posts

Hey guys..

I just have to share this print with you..

At the weekend I assembled my ultimak3r, which is now my second 3d printer.

Can you believe that this thing is one of my firsts prints? (5th I guess). I am stunned by the quality.

No blobbing or strining at all. On the ears it had a bit of plastic strings, but I could remove that easily with my fingernail.

By the way ts the first time I left the printer alone, as I left the house this morning.. I expected horror scenarios like a big messy ball of plastic :) but found this extremely nice print... wow this really made my day .. :D

Hope you like it!

Cheers,

Chris

Hey Ian,

Sure!

Everything except layer height is really quite default, but I will still post the settings:

layer height 0.075mm

temperature: 215

fill: 20

travel speed: 150

print speed: 50

retraction-speed: 40

retraction-distance: 2mm

retraction-min-travel: 5mm

bottom layer speed: 20 (had some trouble with sticking sometimes, so slowed down, now it works great)

    • "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.
