Ultimaker Robot - Where am I off?

Recommended Posts

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

    • Print Core CC | Red for Ruby
      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.
