Ultimaker Robot - Where am I off?

Posted · Ultimaker Robot - Where am I off?

I've printed the official Ultimaker Robot as my first print. Not bad, but not great either. It's my first print in 3D printing as I'm new to the industry but looking for some critiques on what how I should fix. I've followed the wiki, manuals, and forums, but it seems if I change something, I find myself fixing something else. Not ultimaker's fault, just learning. Regardless would love to get input on what I should be doing based on the Ultimaker Robot. Thank you!

    It's okay. It looks a little sloppy somehow. Maybe belts (especially short) need a little tightening? What temp and speed did you print at? Is this .2mm layers or thicker. Why is the bottom not filled in (bottom layer)? Did it break off?

    Hi gr5 - the bottom layer did break off - it started a bit sloppy but then seemed to tighten up as it increased in height. I've gone ahead and tightened the belts, made sure all pulleys are aligned and all belts are parrellel, I also replaced all of the grub screws with the replacements included by Ultimaker. I did it this evening so I will print another and see how it comes out.

    Printed at "normal setting" via cura

    Temp 210

    .2mm layer thickness

    50 mm/s
