Printing a Pipe with 1 mm wall thickness in best quality

Posted (edited) · Printing a Pipe with 1 mm wall thickness in best quality

Hello,

I want to print a pipe with 1 mm wall thickness and a 65 mm diameter in PLA or ABS.

In my fist try I saw that the surface of the pipe has many small interruptions. How could I fix this. The surface has to be smooth.

Is it possible to print the part with 1 mm wall thickness in spiral mode? In the normal mode the nozzle is turning around many times.

You can use a 0.8mm or 1mm nozzle and set the line width to 1mm for the spiralize mode which is limited to one line.

Then you can not do spiralize of 1mm thick, because spiralize will generate a single-walled object. What setting have you set combing too in this print?
