I’m working on printing the Parts for my MPCNC build and I wanted to run a couple questions on part strength past the community. My printer is working really well for me so far and seems to make really clean prints. Its a Maker Select v2. I’ve got it tuned where I am really happy with my prints with one caveat.
I see where the suggested layer height for printing the parts is around .26mm. My printer has a little trouble printing at .2 and above where occasionally a layer won’t adhere to the layer below it as well. I’m tweaking the settings to see if I can’t work out this issue. I understand why it happens, the plastic cools too fast and just doesn’t adhere as well is my understanding. I have also seen that thicker layer heights are supposedly stronger.
How concerned should I be with my layer height in regards to the strength of the parts and are there any parts in particular I should be careful with this about? I feel like my prints look better and seem just as strong at .15 or .1 but it seems like there is a lot of wisdom out there to tell me it really isn’t as strong. I don’t care how long the parts take to print as I’m not in a hurry to get my cnc done but rather I want to have a really solid build when I do get it done. Thanks in advance.
