What software/firmware and settings would you use?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I tried to print this item: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nw64f6lzbdkoikk/LinaFullStar1_3.stl

It is a fairly small item with very high detail on the top layer and so far I couldn't get the desired results.

I used blue PLA and Cura 12.11 with various settings. I got the best results with the following settings, but its not even close to the quality needed to recognize the face on top:

Layer Height: 0.05

Wall Thickness 0.8

Bottom/Top Thickness: 0.3

Fill density: 20%

Speed: 50

Temperature: 230

Retraction is activated with Cura's default settings.

Cura finds some model errors but seems to be able to correct them.

Which software/firmware combination would you recommend for such an item and what settings would you use?

Thanks in advance.

    • 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.
