Ultimaker Original Cura Optimized BrownBronze PLA settings.

Recommended Posts

I got tired of guessing. I did a 16 run design of experiments with the majority of single head extrusion Cura Settings. I used quick retractooze model from thingiverse as my my object of analysis (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:22263/#files).

I used my own, relative, subjective 1-10 scale for stringing, resolution, and a combined aggregate score. I did my design in mini tab, then used it's analysis capabilities to create effect charts. This is the results of the study.

The last print I did had the following settings for lowest stringing possible ad high resolution.

Layer Height: 0.06

Shell Thickness: 0.8

Fill Density: 80%

Print Speed: 150

Print Temp: 190C

Retrac Speed: 55

Distance: 8

Travel Speed: 250

Bottom Layer Speed: 50

Infill: 150

Outer Shell: 20

Inner Shell: 20

Fan: 1s

Cooling Enabled, minimum speed 20

The next step is to use regression on the main effects and optimize overall print speed and quality. Will update additional settings after further analysis. GF wants dinner.

    • "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.
