Smooth Overhangs

Recommended Posts

Hi Community,

I printed out this Mercedes socket5a33211325eb1_MercedesSockel1.thumb.jpg.0ab148f6ec99a64790e567e8993a5b65.jpg[/media] and I've got a few issues with the overhang surfaces. Out of this I want to ask you if there is a similiar Topic or if somebody knows some good Settings to get this surfaces printed in a smooth way without Support ?

Specifications of the print

Material:                   PLA/PHA-Copperfilled (Colorfabb)

Temperature:          202C

Flow:                        100%

Fan:                          100%

Retraction-speed:   45mm/s

Retraction-length:   45mm

Layer-Height:          0,1mm

Print-Speed:            45 mm/s

Support:                   no

Thank you very much!

Hi and welcome.

That's some hard overhangs, not only they are hard to do but also the print area it's too small.

I would

a) Print more than one at the same time, or add towers so each part can colddown before the next layer it's printed on top of it.

b) Set fans as high as possible

c) Change the design to 3 parts, base, front, back, glue it.
