Facepalm moment

Recommended Posts

Before I left work on Friday, I started a 50+hr print of a prototype part I am working on.  I spent a lot of time updating all my settings since I was using MH Pro filaments and I really wanted this thing to be a good show piece.  So Monday morning I roll into work to find this:

After writing up a very long post in the HELP section, I started listing all my settings just in case someone noticed something out of place.  But no worries, I found the problem:

For some odd reason, I unchecked the retraction button.  A facepalm moment if ever there was one...

 

(the PVA is a bit old, hence the underextrusion you see towards the end of the print)

    • "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.
