Slowly collecting non-printable parts from around the globe (mostly China) and made a start on the printed parts. Just checking in to see if my S3d profile might need some tweaking.
Only printed the feet so far and came out very clean, no lift, no defects. I basically used my default PLA profile in S3D, but upped the infill. Don’t think I ever used so much infill before 35% using Fast Honeycomb. Also using my default 3 outer shells (top, bottom and wall), 0.2mm layer height and 0.48 layer width.
Printed in Black PLA (cheapass excelvan that I still had laying about), each foot took 3hrs and weighed in at just under 40g. I assume this is more than expected/described weight due to using 3 shells and maybe the Fast Honeycomb is using more plastic…?!
What are others using for infill style, % and how many shells?
Is it worth increasing layer height, changing infill or reducing shells to save some time and plastic? or does this cost in other ways like strength?
