tall flagpole 200mm settings question

Posted · tall flagpole 200mm settings question

Hi

We want to print tall flagpoles of about 6.5 mm diamter and about 200 mm tall.

Quite ambitious, but we believe it should be possible with the right settings.

We got the pole is instable at the top so the head toudches/ pusches the print to much. Getting no good result.

So far I think about temp 200 and slower speed at 30 mm/s

And minimal layer time down ?

Some tips would be helpful.5a332246d4521_2016-10-1212_52_42.thumb.jpg.77461b68225d2074d7639f42e98dfdf7.jpg

Thanks,

Noël

    Adding brim at the base (it's a cura option) will help it from coming off the bed completely but the wobble will decrease quality the higher you go. I recommend support that reaches half way up. In other words, add two towers maybe 2 or 3 cm away from the base in 2 different directions 90 degrees apart (say one towards the back of the printer and the other tower to the left side of the printer). Have those 2 towers meet the flagpole half way up - around 75mm up maybe or 100mm up. Once those towers meet up stability will be improved and you'll get at least another 100mm.

    Later you can cut off where the towers touch the flagpole. Make the tower touch only on one square mm so there is little to cut off.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
