Tolerance problems with UMS3

Recommended Posts

Posted · Tolerance problems with UMS3

Hi guys I'm relative new to 3D printing


Right now I´m trying to get the best print settings for my UMS3 but I'm not getting far.

I got problems with adhesion to the print plate but that was solved with a glue stick.

I got problems with prints melting/connecting (Gears etc.) I think my xy tolerance is "bad" 

I printed (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2318105) but every cylinder was fused.

The horizontal offset help a bit when I set it to -0.1 but I don't think that is the way to go


Could somebody help me with that problem

Maybe I could get some good print settings for high tolerance prints.

 (I print Ultrafuse black PLA with 0.15 layer Hight)

    As already answered in your German posting, try to use the Engineering profile, I get mostly good results with it.
