Ultimaker S5 20 Micron Height

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker S5 20 Micron Height

So, I'm still exploring my S5.

I went to print a small plug for a PTFE tube, it basically a 3 mm tower. 

I wanted to try to print it at the "20 micron" height touted on some of the promo materials for the printer. 

Here's the thing: Every time I lower the layer height to 0.02 in Cura it won't let me slice.

 

"Unable to slice due to some per model settings"

Support infill layer thickness

Extruder Prime X Position

 

Can someone who's pulled off a 20 micron print give me some advice on how to set this up? 

 

Thanks 

DR

For 20 micron maybe you need the 0.25 print core? not personally tired that low. But if the prints only 3 mm wide in total then it could be settings like wall thickness and stuff thats stopping the print. Does it error if you try other layer heights?

Thanks for your input. I don’t have the smaller print core I probably will order one eventually. 

It does not error with 0.04 layer height, that seems to slice just fine.

I did a 20 micron print ages ago and I could tell the difference between it and the 40 micron height. Just oodles and oodles of added time.
