First PB Play Prints!!!

Postby bigtime » 2016-Apr-Mon-08-Apr

Hi everyone!!,

This is my first post :D . I thought I would share a couple pictures of my very first, ever printed objects. I have never used a printer or even held a 3D printed object. I have to say after a couple of days of calibration and making 10 or so 3mm squares I am very impressed with the results. The first ever non-box object is the small Maker Bot and the second is the larger one. I used a stock .4mm tip, layer height is .1. Heated bed at 65C, hot-end is at 214C. All the other settings are default with the exception of the M212- Z adjustment. I found for my bot, -.95 worked the best. Let me know what you think!!

Nice! Congratulations!

What are you going to do when they jump off and try to take over the world? Looks like they're thinking about it :)

Can anyone suggest some setting changes to improve prints? I had a bit of a hard time breaking the joints loose. From the picture it looks a little sloppy in the inside. Maybe cooler hot end temp or slowdown the extruder?

This one is fun to print. I was able to get it working. you can try reducing the flow. i think my best print had a flow factor of 0.8 or 80% of normal. you can also reduce extrusion width and over-laps and other print "micro-structures". I use Kisslicer which has control of a lot of these physical parameters. I think it could be printed to be even looser but I didn't want to waste filament on that.

plexus,

Thanks for the reply. I will check out Kisslicer! I think my flow rate is at 100%. I'll give is a shot at 80%
