Looks very good. I wouldn't change a thing.

btw what were the speed setting for travel moves? I found the default to be a bit slow.

I will have to check when I get home. Thanks for the response. I will try speeding it up some, it would be great to get a little faster.

Here are the speed settings:

You can change all the ones that have a % to 100. What you lose by printing the outside faster you can gain by printing everything at a constant extrusion rate.

I just started using Simplify3D myself and didn't notice these settings at first and subsequently was printing fairly slow. 65% of 40 = 26mm/s. I also upped the X/Y Axis Movement Speed (Travel Speed) to 200mm/s. This greatly improved stringing.

If you rotate the part 45deg it will get rid of the zebra stripes.

 

Sounds like a nifty trick, I'll have to test this out. Thanks!

This is good stuff! Thank you for your input. I will make those changes and I'm excited for some speed increases!

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
