Print these torture tests with your fine tuned UM and take a picture

Recommended Posts

If you've got a fine tuned UM please print these torture tests by Makerbot and Make magazine (in PLA from Ultimaking) so I can compare with my results and see what I can expect from my own printer. (if possible in grey/silver because colours affect the perception of shapes)


I'm giving you the gcodes instead of the stl so that comparison will be more accurate.


Once done take a picture of the prints from above (similar to the one below) and post it in this thread. Thx in advance.

I can't print as my machine is currently in little pieces but I can say that just grabbing a gcode-file and running it is unlikely to work all that well. Say they used 2.80mm filament and whoever wants to give it a go has 2.95mm filament it will not work. Also, a fine tuned machine isn't all about the mechanical side of things, tweaking settings in software plays a huge part as well.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
