First print & question reg. quality

Recommended Posts

When I look at the first print my UM3e produced today - a benchy of course -

I see two things I do not like too much:

- the diagonal lines visible at the side of the cabin

- the rough surface at the lower part of the benchy

 

The first issue I already have learned this might be a problem of the UM3 and may be related to the way the stepper motors are driven?

 

The second issue - rough surface at lower layers - is a bit tricky.

I did use the silver UM PLA that came with the printer and the standard profile for that in Cura.

So bed Temp was at 60°C, print temp was 205°C.

 

Does somebody have some hints to improve?

    • "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.
