Large print attempt Ultimaker S5 bundle


Recommended Posts

Posted · Large print attempt Ultimaker S5 bundle

Hi all,


I am attempting a large print over the weekend (40ish hours) and planning on using an AA0.8 and BB0.4 (TPLA+PVA). The reason for the 0.8 core is that i want to reduce the print time, however i have previously only used the 0.8 core in vase mode and am looking for any tips or tricks for printing with this. Is the default TPLA profile good enough or should i tweak something? I'm thinking 0.2 layer height but could consider 0.3 if that suits the 0.8 core better.


Would also appreciate input on using PVA for this as i have had some struggles in the past. There are some large overhangs that i would like to come out as clean as possible so im using support interface. Support angle at 60° and a support density of 80%. Regular supports from everywhere.


Both materials are fresh from the box and will be pre-dried at 50 °C for 24 hours before printing from the material station.


Appreciate any input!
