Warping on printed multicopter arms

Hello,

I am having trouble printing several parts of a multicopter I have design.

I have warping at the edges of some (all printed at the same time) of the arms.

Some have some warping at the edges, I have printed other things without this problem.

I use the defaul normal printer setting from dura, I have an ultimaker 2.

I havent try anything else as I am new to the community.

Should I change some settings, If I have to please tell how, this is a complete new world for me!!

thank you

alfonso

i normally print with a heated bed temp 55. .. cooler than the normal temp and helps.

Also did you use a little gluestick on the glass and then clean it away a little.. you only need a small small amount of stickyness... heated bed 55 and your print bed lgood and evel.. then make sure the first print layer puts down a nice squeezed layer of filament and you should be perfect....

Ian :-)

Okay, google helped me to understand what a "brim" is, but show do I do it with Cura?

You may activate it by selecting the brim option in 'Platform Adhesion Type' in the basic settings. The size of the brim, i.e. the number of lines, can be controlled in the expert settings.
