Profile for .4mm strong walls using PLA

Posted · Profile for .4mm strong walls using PLA

Hi,

 

Just wondering if anyone can help me. For a year now I have successfully printed thin walls for my cutters using the Prusa slicer with my Anycubic i3 Mega. 

 

I recently purchased an Ultimaker S5 and have not been able to produce, clean, strong, thin walls for my cutters (as in picture) since. I'm sure the S5 can do it but so far I have had no success.

 

Can anyone help me with this or help me to configure Prusa to use with the S5.  I have seen on many forums that Cura is not good for thin walls.

 

I typically need the cutting wall between .46mm and .49mm in width.  I use plain PLA.

 

Thanks in anticipation for your help.

 

Desperate,

 

Stephen.

    Hi @SPD, could you also post some pictures of the prints you are getting out of your Ultimaker S5? That would probably help to identify some areas where you can improve. Thanks!

    These are a few of the problems as well as getting good strength in the .5mm cutting walls.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, unfortunately the photo's (especially with the holes) could have a variety of reasons. Could you also share the Cura project file so we can look into all the settings you have?

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
