3d Printing designs not printing smoothly

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I designed on fusion 360 something to hold my shaving stuff and decided to print it in two parts.

these are the settings I'm using in cura:

I printed the first part and this is how it came out:

What am I doing wrong? I don't seem to have an issue when I print other objects from lets say on thingiverse.

You need a lot more top/bottom layers. you set it to 0.4 with 0.2 layer height. So you only print 2 top layers, thats not enough for a smooth surface, you need minimal 6, so 6 x 0.2 = 1.2 mm top/bottom layers, some people prefer even more....

And check you cooling, I assume you print PLA? set your fans too 100%

And check here for some additional support, have a look at the trouble shooting guide.

    • 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.
