Not getting Squareness

Recommended Posts

Posted · Not getting Squareness

Hi every one,

 

Can anyone suggest how to get squareness on prints? Currently, I am printing PC material and not able to print it perfectly.

It's getting radios on outside walls instead of the straight wall.

Hi,

 

which printer do you use? Do you use Cura? If yes, which print settings did you select?

This is the Image of current print which I am printing having the same issue. It started getting radius on exterior walls.

We can always try :)

What firmware are you using? It can be that your jerk and acceleration settings are sub-optimal. 

 

How tight are your belts? And at what temperature are you printing (print head & bed)?

Its brand new machine. Belts are good and tight enough. Print temperature 280

I would still recommend to see if newer firmware is available. Is your Ultimaker 3 connected to the network? If your Ultimaker spent some time at a reseller or in a warehouse, it is possible that a new firmware is released in the time it left our assembly factory, and ended up at your doorstep :)

 

280ºC seems on the high side of things, could you try to reduce it to 260ºC?

But your radius doesn't seem that bad, does it? I put a ruler over your photo, and they seem pretty straight to me. radius.thumb.png.a69d02298354b8594a4fa5bfb5179865.png

I will get back to you with new photos. I will try it again with reduced acceleration to 2000 instead of 4000. 

 

Thanks for your help
