robot test prints....

Posted · robot test prints....

Hi, i received my brand new Ultimaker2 yesterday and have been printing robots, re-aligning the print bed, and doing more prints to settle the machine and get used to it etc etc... on every robot i have printed the left arm detail comes out perfectly but the right arm and 'ear' are deformed, as well as the bridge under the 'belly'

what settings do i need to change? i am using the blue PLA which came with the printer....

    The shroud around the hotend unfortunately seems to block some of the airflow from the right fan when you're printing really small objects (like the robot). Printing two robots at the same time (add another bot and then Tools -> Print all at once) can help as it will move the head away from one of the robots for a little while to give it a chance to cool down.

    This is an easy one - but next time consider posting a picture. Go to the top left of this page, click "Gallery". Upload a picture then on your next post click "my media" next to the smiley face.
