Success with minimising warping on corners

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

So I have been printing some parts for an air duct which need to fit together squarely. I had some problems with warping in corners and went through this forum for tips.

I tried the disc method where you incorporate discs 0.2mm thick at the corners of the base of the object. I used a varying diameter depending on the size of the object and also changed the first layer thickness to 0.2mm and made the fan turn on during the 3rd layer rather than 2nd. I can safely say that warping has been almost eliminated. :D
