First Model try, some feedback?

Hi everyone,

i'm still waiting for my ultimaker but already started to learn a bit about cad tools and currently trying sketchup... i already have created my first model (a pen cap) that was exported as .stl and repaired via netfabb, i already uploaded it to thingivers (

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:21386

).

would be really great to have someone that could review this model or maybe testprint it and give me some feedback about it (mistakes? how to improve it to get better print results, imposible layout, etc.)

what i can see so far is that something with the position seems to be wrong because it looks like the cap is flying on the thingivers screenshot.

thanks in advanced!

    faces in the model that form a 'ceiling' under an over hang should have at least a 20* angle from horizontal, otherwise you need to print with support which adds post process time and ruins surface finish. this would include the wall half way down the bore, and the arms going to the center pin.

    hi again,

    thanks for the really fast reply and test print!

    And also good point at the horizontal elements, makes sense that you always need an angle because the printer cant put the PLA on nothing (printing in the air :D). I will fix up these points and hopefully my printer arrives the next days.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
