Hi 

 

I am trying to print bellows with tpu, but I haven't been succeded. I have tried with vase mode but it ends up a mess. How can I put spiralize without creating structures outside? 

 

does anyone know the best technique to print bellows?

 

Thank you

    the best technique to printing bellows is to not print bellows.
    just print the paddles and use leather. or cheap plastic sheet. it would be more cost effective to just buy bellows.

    I really want to know why you thought you had to necro an eight and a half month old thread just to say that.

     

    A lot of the fun of 3D printing is making stuff that even though we might be able to buy, we can customise or just take pride in having done it ourselves.

     

    And for what it's worth...

    You can't really use vase mode for too much of anything with TPU. A single wall of TPU is not going to be strong enough to withstand much, possibly including not even being able to hold up its own weight while you print it, depending on size and model.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
