2 top layers

Recommended Posts

Posted · 2 top layers

Hi;

Had my ultimaker for a week now, Could not be more pleased with it !

A quick question........

Picture printing 2 cubes one larger than the other ontop of each other, Like a sugar cube on a box of matches....

Is there a way to improve the top layer on the bottom cube..? The top cube top layer always seems better..?

Would you mind adding a picture of the case to solve? There are so many things that can be going on...

There are no special case for the "real" top of a print. Any part that is getting toward the surface gets the required top/bottom shell thickness.

Is the top of the bottom cube completely closed or is it hollow under the top cube? Its pretty hard to stop a layer in mid air if there is no support under it.

You should follow topics you create to see when people reply to them. You can do that on the upper right part of this topic or in you profile settings.

Thanks all for your help ! I thought top layer was the single uppermost layer not the top face of any layer

      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.
