Need Tips for Improving 0.25mm Prints on UM2+

Recommended Posts

Howdy,

 

I've printed the Adabot Mini Fig model published by the Ruiz brothers from Adafruit but am not happy with the quality. https://learn.adafruit.com/lego-webcam-cover/overview Their version looks much nicer in terms of surface quality and overall appearance

I have an Ultimaker 2 that I upgraded to a 2+. I am using Magigoo on glass. I went down the checklist of maintenance items.

-Firmware 2.6.2

-Ultimaker Cura 3.2.1

-Feeder & Bowden Cleaned

-Axles lubricated & aligned

-Short belts tensioned

-Lead screw lubed

-Filament diameter measured and set for material

 

Would appreciate any tips or links on steps I could take to improve quality for small scale prints.

 

Thanks,

@designmaketeach

    • "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.
