Is there a parameter for this?

Recommended Posts


When I print the ultimaker robot, and it is printing the antennas, it print two layers on each antenna before it proceed. I want it to print one layer and then proceed to the next antenna, where i prints one layer and the back again to the first antenna.

Two layers in a row on the small antennas will cause melting and I would like to avoid that :smile:

Is there a parameter for adjusting this?

Not that i know... For these kind of small areas you can use cool head lift in expert settings. It will pause the print a couple of seconds (lift the head and put it on the side) too let the layers cool down.

Either that or print two robots at the same time, or print a tower (i use a 5mm cylinder) just higher than the robot to make it cool down.

    • "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.
