Hi there !

 

I am new to the community and start to begin printing with my Ultimate 2+

I am searching for custom profiles for PLA to download and use for detailed printing.

Can't find anything online. Are there downloadable profiles ? 

Working on a Mac and Cura is the latest version.

Thanks in advance !

ultimate 2+??  Or Ultimaker 2+??

 

Cura comes with profiles that are fine.  I don't think anyone publishes profiles because cura comes out with new versions every month and the older profiles don't always work with newer versions.

 

Personally if you want detailed printing and it is a small print (less than 30mm in all dimensions) then I recommend a .25mm nozzle.  Also I recommend print cold and slow.  So with .25mm nozzle you want to go as cold as possible - around 180C.  I like relatively thick layers - 0.1mm (that's thick for a .25mm but it's easier to get good quality with thicker layers - going for thinner than that and getting just as good quality might require cleaning the Z screw or worse).  Also I like slow print speeds so set ALL the print speeds to say 25mm/sec.  This may take days for a small print but it should come out stunning.

 

But really you should start with average quality and work your way down.  Learn all the things that go wrong (like bad bad adhesion) before you go for 0.25mm nozzles.

I am sorry, it is the Ultimaker 2+

 

I have done a few prints and they are fine ( for the one that succeed )

If I want to print really small objects then they come off the glass, even when I use the glue that comes in the package.

Have to figure that out to prevent this...

 

Thanks ! ! !
