Please help improve Owl test print quality


Recommended Posts

Posted · Please help improve Owl test print quality



I’ve printed around 10 Owls so far, tweaking my settings, and this is what I’ve managed to come up with so far.

As you can see, there are still some imperfections (“tear drops”) at the bottom tips of some of the feathers. 

Also, some imperfections on the owl’s back.

Any tips on how to improve on this?


This is printed on a Anycubic Viper, 0.12mm layer height and 45mm/s print speed.


Let me know what other settings you need to know if required?

Thank you so much for your advice!
