nozzle knocks parts loose


Recommended Posts

Posted · nozzle knocks parts loose

I'm printing a 3d airplane. Everything printed perfectly except the rudder. It gets to about 85 percent finished then gets hit by the nozzle. At that point it is printing a solid block to mount the horizontal stabilizer. Any ideas?

    Picture please (screenshot).    No idea what this "solid block" is that you speak of.


    If the rudder is very tall and thin such that is wobbles then maybe you should add support to the rudder to hold it better (add in CAD software, not cura).  Also if this is on a prusa or ender printer where the print bed moves in the Y direction then maybe align the airplane facing towards the front or back of the printer so there is less vibration in that direction where the rudder is weak.


    But picture please as it sounds like your issue is different than what I think it is.
