Recommended Posts

...for making me look awesome! :ugeek: :D

_AD_0436.thumb.jpg.43dd95bb265ee9b56cba30b81153cdd5.jpg

Model taken from fotos with 123d catch, sliced with netfabb and printed in about 5cm height in 4hours with ultrafine settings.

Printed with PLA, using printrun.

No raft, no support.

This is my 5th print or so, still got a lot to learn ;). The chin went bad and some parts have been printed into the air.

No picture can show, how beautiful the print came out. Bare eyes barely can see the printlines.

Sad, that I had not enough pictures, to stitch the top of my head properly. But that will be done, as soon as the weather clears up a bit... photoshooting in the snow is difficult to argue with my wife :D.

The pictures show the print right after it finished, untouched and still sticked to the printbed.

Cheers,

Michael

Thanks,

Profile pic -> done ;).

I upgraded to Marlin right after the first tries. The print does not lack smootheness, it's some unneccessary rapid movements to an opposite point, that made it fail a bit.

If netfabb would just see, where is the outer and inner shell, so it could be avoided to put the strings on the visible surface.

There should be an option just to skip unsupported areas, that would be printed midair, too.... despite that, I just love it.

But for now, I need to fix the hot end, it started drooling underneath the aluminum block yesterday and almost ruined the print.
