Ideal settings/profile for ABS on an UM2 in Simplify3d?

Recommended Posts

Im using the default settings in S3D on my UM2 using ABS and I can tell you that it is going to require a little tweaking on my end to get it to print how i want. as it stands, I am getting a lot of pillowing on my solid layers. Trying to add more layers and turning the fans on to 30% power when the solid layers begin to print. My first attempt with the new settings seemed to be successful, but then when trying to duplicate it, the pillowing resurfaced on the next print... not at all as bad as the initial one but still requiring some tweaking.

    • "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.
