Epic Fail, What the heck happened?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Epic Fail, What the heck happened?

I printed the famous Enterprise (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:133752), half scale of the original STL to fit in about 4 hours of printing with a 0.4 nozzle. Simple PLA from Ultimaker was used. This is the result:

.STL for 0.4 nozzle, normal settings for PLA: http://www.filedropper.com/enterprisehalfscale

What the HECK happened? I can see heavy warping, pitting, blogging, stringing, delayering, missing area's, and the list goes on. First time i have a print that fails like that (a part from the odd print that ends up in spaghetti).

I printed something the day before, it worked out ok (for some reason was a bit of pitting/blobbing and some thick stringing). Before that, my prints were excellent.

I don't have time right now to check your gcode file - dinner is ready - but ALL the problems shown in your photo will probably go away if you cut the speed by 1/3. I'm familiar with all those issues in that photo.

I'll give it a try, i was printing slower than normal (like i always do, parts come out nicer). This time... not so much!

Probably too fast and too hot

 

I was tempted to make a 'that's what she said' joke but I'll restrain myself...

Just made a different print of another object, same settings, came out perfect.

Unsure what happened to this one...

    • "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.
