Printing in place

Recommended Posts

Hi all I've encountered a problem while printing in place, what it is I've been printing a fidget cube in pla with 0.4mm nozzle the first one came out fuzzed in some places so I decided to change the extrusion multiplier it worked but it created a different problem the pins that were printed vertically are looking good but the ones printed horizontally are too small/loose as shown on the pictures,  is there a way to adjust the extrusion for the different parts of the object or is there a setting I could change to avoid parts fuzzing while keeping the extrusion the same ?

The secret with small things in PLA is to go as cool as you can, lol I bet you can drop 5 if not 10/15 degrees and go as slow as you can. You may have to play with both parameters to find the sweet spot. And filament make/colour may play a part too although I have never really investigated that for this question - although for general use I know my best 2 or 3 filaments

Thanks for the reply I will try to print it again with lower temps, I was running it quite slow 30mm/s at 195 celsius,  this pla sticks to itself quite well even at 180  I will try higher temp at first layer and then drop the temp, thanks again

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
