Printing with supports in S3D

Hello to all, I'm trying to print the part of the picture below. WhatsApp Image 2016-10-14 at 12.47.22.jpeg Actually, I printed one version, but the supports were not enough to give me a good quality part... on the top layers the part is good, but the layers that were prited over supports... they're...

Re: Help about the filament feeding

Great! Thanks! 1. Your threads look fine overall but there's a spot there where they didn't stick. Clean the plate really thoroughly with a de-greaser soap followed by vinegar or alcohol. Then refresh the hairspray adhesive all over the plate. I'll do it. Is I use the side of the glass with the poly...

Re: Help about the filament feeding

Hey Jules! I'm still laughing since the date I've discovered something very basic, that was causing many of my problems and actually reached the tedious situation of a clogged nozzle... The plastic I was printing was ABS, not PLA! :oops: :oops: Even more funny (or more idiot) is how I discovered: I ...

Re: Help about the filament feeding

Based on what you're writting and many things i've read... I was really suspecting of that PLA... The marks of the extruder gear when I'm retracting it, are really white, as when you crack some hard plastic. It's not a smooth mark when you smash a soft plastic but allmost some crackings on the fill....

Re: Help about the filament feeding

Well, I thought everything was going to run smooooth... but no. hahaha I have problems with square shapes, like in the pictures. I've increased cooling by adding an extra fan (3/8" 24V) to the bed... and I'm working with 225C for PLA! First layer, OK. It continues glued to the table. But the subsequ...

Re: Help about the filament feeding

Re: Help about the filament feeding

:D I'm "slowly tunning" my printings but I'm really glad with the results. Thanks a lot for the advices! So far: Yes, the outline overlap is a bit high - try outline overlap - 15%. You can increase the vertical lift to 0.4 mm Temperature is fine at 205°. Done, overlap set to 15%, vertical lift at 0,...

Re: Help about the filament feeding

Thank you very much! I've loosen the filament tension and adjusted the gap of the table. Geeting better! Anyway, I'm having another issue when I'm printing for a while, let's say 20 mins. The noozle is getting stucked. I guess because he extrudes more than the necessary or because he's dragging plas...

Re: Help about the filament feeding

Problem resolved: The T° I was using for PLA was too low. I increase to 205/200C and is working back again. The only question remaining is if it's normal to have some filament with 1,60mm of diameter when it should be 1,75? I receive that roll along with the used machine I bought. It is the original...
