newbie question, what is wrong with my settings

Recommended Posts

Only with my own prints. So, there must be something wrong during slicing. The same source stl files produce correct gcode for the reprap (via Slicr). Anyway, the problem is in (my settings of) CURA. There are not many, I must be missing something obvious.

I posted the settings in the "Album" as png.

First print slower... your settings:

Layer 0.25 / speed 100 result in 0.25 x 0.4 × 100 = 10 mm3/s. This is to fast for a decent quality.(0.4 = um2 nozzle size)

Try 0.1 layer and 50 speed...

And always check layer view in cura before printing. Are the walls build in layer view?

and to get a feel for speed, try printing this test;

    • "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.
