Not getting Squareness

Recommended Posts

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.

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)?

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

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
