Why are the others so much better? comparison with a other user.... :-(

Recommended Posts

Hi,

At the moment I do not understand the whole 3D-printing-world anymore. I have been here for a year now, ups and downs in 3D printing came and at the same time I also improved a lot and also post processing.

Overhangs are still a really big problem here. So post-processing are a big and a time-consuming problem.

example

In another forum, which is about the props building, now someone bought a 3-D printer, a cheap at the zortrax m200.

Without 3d printing expertise, the other user then just started to print and even with ABS!!! He did not know about PLA and easier printing.

This ABS role was with him in the package and it worked, fantastic results ..

For example, his ABS part:

And after post-processing, he do not acetone smoothing, only sanding and putty / filler.

I wanted give him many helpful tips, so that he did not have the same such a long odyssey, as I am at the post-processing.

I need days to sand and fill up the rills and again. But he did everything alone, in a record speed of less than one day per part and makes great things. He also does not do anything great, as he told me, the parts come out of the m200 with out overhangs ! then he sands over, that’s it.

I'm so sad, that I really do everything for so long time. Even I cant  print ABS directly error-free and he can as new member, directly

One of the biggest jokes, is that he does not even print as fine as I do, I often use 0.04 mm or even finer to have little stairs which I have to sand away, but the M200 can only 0.09 maximum !!!

Other example

If I would print this part so, I would know

1. Support on the bottom side, which are hardly and very difficult to clean up.

2. the botton layer which is in contact with the support, would be not clean and weavy.. ...

His printing position

and this is the part after post processing, right and left side
