Post your latest print!

Recommended Posts

Nice :) Layer height .5 on a .8 nozzle and still 92 hours of print... omg :)

Have to say that my .8 nozzle if fast becoming my favorite one :)

Edit: Remember my Ulti-bot army?

They lost the war... All 50 of them were crushed by giants in less than 5 minutes. Even the special ones with red and black clothing that were built on site!

Thanks! For a first quick mount I used the friction welding method and after that the 3Doodler to fill gaps and repairs. Works great.

 

Friction welding? Where can I find more about this method? That sounds promising.

Great job!

May I ask which temperature and speed you use to print with a 0.8 nozzle at 0.5 mm layer height?

 

The temperature is 245C speed 60 and material flow 95%. I figured that out after some test prints all the pieces came out nice with these settings.

PVC glue works good to make it watertight... but better is to increase to flow to somewhat like 120 - 140% on the bottom layers, or also on all layers for a little bit thinker walls ...

this works very well (tested) with drilled out UM nozzles, the olson/E3D may need even more flow increase, best is just to try a few different flow settings on a few small spiralize objects. It also doesn't hurt to make the bottom a bit thicker

I feel like it has been a really long time since I posted. I have not forgotten about you guys. I have just been deep in the process of developing a new youtube show using my Ulitmaker 2 and the logos of different youtube personalities.

It started with my cinemassacre 3d print that I did as a fan (which I shared here several months back) and has blossomed into a fun series about developing 3d prints. I have several other logos that I am already working on and hope to get more youtubers involved. I'll keep you guys updated if you are interested.

Anyway check out the latest episode.

 

And here are a couple images if you just want to check out the finished 3d print itself.

Is it water tight? My spiralize objects sliced with Cura have tight outer shells but the bottom looks like a sieve.

 

For me flow at 110% on the first layers makes them water tight (like Arjan Advised). Tested with the 0.8 nozzles too

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
