Need help identifying printing quality issue

Recommended Posts

The arms issue is called "overhangs" and you can fix that somewhat with support.  Personally I would enable support touching buildplate only for this model.

 

Was this one thorn worse than all the others?  If so it's probably related to "z seam".  By default it's on "sharpest corner" but that's probably this particular thorn so try "random" or any of the other options.  Make sure your fan is at 100% and consider lowering the temperature by 10C and printing slower (try half the speed you did and I think it will help the quality quite a bit).

This particular thorn was worse than the others, so I will try changing the z seam. The other thorns all had blobs, is this due to overheating? Thanks

    • "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.
