Bizarre Build Times and Material Usage

Recommended Posts

Posted · Bizarre Build Times and Material Usage

I'll admit that I'm very new to all this (ten days) but I just downloaded a 'Nautilus Gears' file from Thingiverseand I'm getting a print time of 25 Days 11 Hours 58 minutes, with 1721.85m and 5136g...

 

It comes in as two separate files, gear and support bar, and I multiplied by 1 copy to get the two of each required.

 

I did try printing it but it started putting weird 'connecting lines' (to features that don't apparently exist) over the first layers.

 

What am I doing wrong???

Which Cura version are you using?

On what computer OS?

Can you post a link to the thingiverse design?

 

What settings did you change? It looks like you enabled the 'draft shield'?

    • "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.
