Printed in ABS without any shielding whatsoever. All I do is coat the bed in ABS juice, start printing at 75C and have the TweakAtZ plugin raise the temperature to 110C from the second layer onwards. That way I don't have to wait ages for the bed to warm up. I do use brims, usually 10 or 20 lines depending on the model. In this case I used 20 since the bed contact area is so small. I have printed a few of these, and they take 4 hours with a 0.8mm nozzle, 0.4mm layer height, 5% infill, and around 60mm/s, twice the time obviously at 0.2mm layer height.

If any of the moderators are reading this, I won't be using the 3D print upload form until:

1) I am not forced to enter anything, but get to choose what information I supply or don't. It's my model, my effort, and my time. When those requirements have changed and item 2 has been fixed, I will use it again.

2) I'm on Ubuntu 15.04 using Chrome. My pictures won't upload now to the 3D print form. Not having all the time in the world, I tried twice with the same result. So, I abandoned that effort, along with the considerations mentioned in item 1.

    • "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.
