Test print I received vs. my first print

Recommended Posts

20140718 135433

 

Hi first time UM2 user here, I am comparing in the image the print I received by UM with my printer and the first print I made with the printer.

 

I am by far not expecting my first print to come out as theirs did, but I am just curious what did they do to achieve the level of quality on their (red) printed item.

 

Any tips and hints greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Hi TM,

What are the settings you have used?

It looks like under extrusion.

Here is a very helpful guide: http://support.3dverkstan.se/article/23-a-visual-ultimaker-troubleshooting-guide

If you start the print and go to tune, you can check the nozzle temperature and bed temp.

I would recommend settings around: 210ºC - 40mm/s at 100micron and bed temp of 60ºC.
