0.2mm print core AA

Recommended Posts

It is possible ?

At least to think about it. I don't know maybe inside different design ?

And for it, a special 0.04 profile in Cura.

Very usefull for me for small detail parts for Railroad modeling.

The combination of a very small nozzle like 0.2 and a low layer height like 0.4 will give problems with the E-resolution (the stepper that drives the filament).

By heart: when you use 0.25mm nozzle with 0.06layer, a single E step is good for ~1mm XY motion. That is too much.

Have you seen examples of 0.4mm nozzle at 0.06mm with PLA? You might be positively surprised.

Not for now. But for the future. At list think about it.

Ultimaker has entered in the auto industry.

Why not Railroad modeling ?

Un upgrade for stepper ?

I just printed a coach case in 0.06 layer with AA 0.4 mm.

But for my loco some parts need more.

And i think there are others too.

Especially for tanks at HO scale 1:87 for example.

Think about.

Respect for your work.

My UM3 is the best.

    • "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.
