Top surface finishing


Recommended Posts

Posted · Top surface finishing

Hi everyone,


I start to print with Ultrafuse 316L filament (BASF) and I have some problem with top surface finish. 

In the attached file ( sample_1), I disable Ironing option and there is no filament outside the surface's geometry. 

In the attached files (sample_2.1, sample_2.2, sample_2.3), I enable ironing option and there are pieces of material outside surface's geometry, like the nozzle dragged the material during the travel. 

I'd like to print with ironing because this option can ensure a good top surface finish. 


Can anyone give me any advice and solve this problem?


Thanks in advance!!

    Humm. It looks like the line width for the top surface was set too large. Can you try with lower value??? Or maybe increasing the flow...


    Out of curiosity, how would you send the green part for binding? I would like to to some test and I'm looking for a supplier that can do the binding for us...
