Refining and troubleshooting print quality

Recommended Posts

I just received my UM2 and have made 3 prints that were already on the SD card.

I set the build plate as instructed, applied the thin layer with the glue stick and printed at the preset SLA setting as well as hotter 260 to see if it would effect my quality. I am using Blue PLA 2.85mm.

Is there a guide or steps to follow to refine print quality or troubleshoot the quality.

I don't know where to begin with adjustments. I know it will become more obvious with time and each model will require specific settings. I am just looking for general direction to head. I will post a photo of the quality I am at now as soon as I figure out where and how.

Thanks,

    • "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.
