Benchy Issues

Posted · Benchy Issues

Hello All,


I'm pretty new to the 3d printing realm so if I'm making some beginner mistakes forgive me ahead of time. I've been working to try and improve my benchy but am continuing to have issues. There are two prominent issues the first being the bow has a weird roughness to it, which I assume is due to cooling. The second is the bridge over the front window is drooping slightly, which I assume also has to do with cooling. I turned down the nozzle temp to 190c, the travel rate to 40 mm/s, and the layers to .1 mm. This all seemed to help but not enough to make it tolerable. Before I begin any bigger prints I want to hone in on this and get it as nice as possible to ensure future success. Any advice or suggestions on how to adjust the printer settings to better this would be greatly appreciated. I've attached the .stl file and gcode file along with several pictures. Lastly I need to note I own a AnyCubic i3 Mega S 3D printer and have been using Hatchbox Trueblue PLA filament. Thank you everyone!
