Best parameter settings for Ultimaker3: PLA, high quality (0.06mm)

Posted · Best parameter settings for Ultimaker3: PLA, high quality (0.06mm)


I am a newbie here, and have one quick question regarding parameter settings.

I usually use normal quality (0.1mm) for print, and all prints worked fine.

For the last few days, I tried high quality print (0.06mm resolution), and all the prints failed: warping on corners, flimsy support, etc.

Print size was roughly 190mm x 135mm x 50mm, and brim was set to 10mm.

I used CURA's default settings for plate temperature, nozzle temperature, etc.

What would be the best parameter settings for high quality (0.06mm resolution) PLA printing?

    I have found the base settings to be spot on. What are you using to secure the print to the buildplate?

    There are many ways, such as, Hairspray, Tapes, PVA slurry, Glue stick wiped down and geert_2 has a novel salt method.
