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!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
