Your Settings for Perfect Quality Prints?

Recommended Posts

Settings depend on so many things it's difficult to compare between different machines and filaments used. Also, there are so many settings... but anyway, here it is:

I am using this black PLA filament and generating the code in NetFabb.

(Region, layer size, speed)

External contour: 0.04 mm, 25 mm/s.

Internal contour: 0.08 mm, 40 mm/s.

Downskin: 0.16 mm, 40 mm/s.

Upskin: 0.08 mm, 40 mm/s.

Filling: 0.16 mm, 60 mm/s, one line evely 4 mm (that's 10%).

The first layer is printed at 50% speed and no fan.

My extruder (the upgraded version) is perfectly calibrated at 844 steps/mm.

Using duble layer sizes for the filling and downskin makes it much faster to print without any external difference. But you currently can't do that in Cura.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
