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

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
