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

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      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.
