Print thin vertical layer


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Print thin vertical layer


I was testing what I suppose a "simple thing", a vertical "sheet". Basically I would print the thinnest sheet I could with my nozzle (0.4mm). I have 2 questions:

  1. I would print it at "high speed", but even if I set all the speed settings to 100mm/s (a random high speed) in practise the entire sheet is printed at 10mm/s. You can see from Cura preview.
  2. At every layer change, the nozzle return at the same position, wasting time in travelling. I would see the printer emitting constant filament alternating from right-to-left and left-to-right. I had tried to change Z Seam Alignment but no luck.

Here the 3mf file.


The idea is trying to replicate the solution proposed in the paper "DefeXtiles: 3D Printing Quasi-Woven Fabric via Under-Extrusion", which unfortunately makes use of Simplify3D.
