Something about settings


Recommended Posts

Posted · Something about settings

There’s difference between filaments. Pla is more stiff on low temperatures, nylon is stronger. So if there’s anything to do, like making something with one layer of pla as top coat on a nylon print? Seems to me that the pla will hold that short period of higher temperature. Then the print probably will be stronger and smoother! 
something else about layers, there is always the same thickness on the surface in each level. I am in default settings, so it will give 3 layer in a row on each level. But, I think, and believe, that if it make it like, 2 and 3 layers, zigzagged with the filled in, then it will be bite together, and make it a much stronger print! 
Anyway, it is something about setting, or programming, but neither of those I know how to deal with... 😂 hope somebody can help?
