After searching the forums, my head is spinning a bit from lots of theory, potential issues noted between slicers(etc.), and some apparent lessons learned that aren’t vetted in the FAQs yet, so I would like to confirm… I’m about to print my first build, and was really hoping someone can help me confirm my setup before I start trying to print parts this week-
I’m not an avid 3D Print user and have only done it a few times, so any basic info would be much appreciated! If it helps, I have a CR-10S with TH3D firmware load, and I’ve used CURA a couple of times now. .4mm nozzle and I have verified the 150XY_mm bed test (basic) is spot on in the X, Y, and the Diagonal.
What slicer is recommended? i.e. with alleged differences with belt gap spacing last summer, and variable infill recommendations (which I don’t see supported in CURA), I want to know which slicer is my best/safest option to help get it right the first time? (i.e. less about opinions, power user considerations, etc.). I’m willing to learn a new slicer. I just don’t see a place in Cura to even manually capture a 70%/30%/70% split at 24mm and 116mm for the core?
Specific Recommended Settings?
For all the parts other than the core, is the only real setting that matters is a 70% infill, and a layer height of .3mm being optimal for my standard .4mm nozzle since this will be stronger and more rigid than a .2mm or .25mm layer height?
Any other key settings? Perimeters/walls = 3 good enough? Any other settings?
Settings for the Core, vice the other parts
I know I have lots of questions, and I haven’t touched this 3D printer in several years… no doubt I’ve missed out on a lot that is likely regarded as common knowledge at this point… A huge thanks in advance for anyone willing to take the time to help me out!
