Posted · Problem with 1/8” thick columns

Hi I'm an architecture student that just started printing my models made in Rhino. I just printed a flat floor that is 1/8” thick and columns that are attached to the floor that rise up. They are 1/8” in diameter. For some reason the whole print went good up until like the last 4 layers. The columns got very thin, probably just the size of the nozzle and the beams that were supposed to connect the columns at the top just didn’t print at all even thought they had supports. Please help it’s for my school projects and I can’t figure this out it keeps happening because my models are 1/8”=1’ so the columns are very thin. I’m just confused as to why this happened.

    Tell me if I'm wrong but the problem seems to appear on the layer where you only have the post printing (meaning that no more walls were printed?) If that so, maybe you did not had enought cooling time between each layer. That would explain why you got more stringing too ...
