Hexagon Tube Print

Recommended Posts

Posted · Hexagon Tube Print

Aloha,

I'm working on a project and I'm having the hardest time getting a hexagon tube to print. I'm printing it on its end and have put mouse ears, painters tape on the bed, printing with PLA at 60 Celsius.

The dimensions of the hexagon tube are W: 198 mm D: 171.5 mm and H: 304.8mm

It needs to have the shape of the Hexagon Tube as in the image below.

Hi

A picture of a failed print would be good. Also what slicer and settings are you using. Slow, thick first layer on a cleaned heated bed with glue stick or similar applied should work.
