3d Print stringy

Recommended Posts

Posted · 3d Print stringy

I'm currently having trouble printing out bottle forms. Originally my setup had no issues printing out shapes with 2mm thickness. My Ultimaker Original is using Black PLA, running at 228 C with a fan speed of 128. For faster print times I reduced the thickness of the shapes to 1mm, 90 percent of the bottle printed fine until the shoulder and neck were printed. Could you please help me with the correct printing settings? If its not settings what else could be the problem. Is high quality setting the best option?

Most important setting is to have fan at full 100% (255) by the time you get to the "shoulder".

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
