Re: Stiffer Raft?

If you stop the base at height X and start the part at the same height the 2 will fuse together pretty strongly. A raft has a separation between them with small areas of contact between. I'll have to figure out how to make those small contact points.

Re: Stiffer Raft?

That's kind of what I was thinking...I could easily design a platform then specify the infill type...but then how do I do the transition from the platform to the part? I'm going to pick up a thermometer today just to see where I'm at. I really want to be able to use PC for my RC airplanes but if I c...

Re: Stiffer Raft?

I haven't put a thermometer in the enclosure yet but it gets quite hot. Hot enough that my motors are getting very hot and I bought some heat sinks for them.

Re: Stiffer Raft?

I have. The parts warp and pull the metal PEI plate off of the bed even worse with a skirt/brim.

Stiffer Raft?

I'm trying to print using various materials like ABS and PC which have a tendency to shrink even when using an enclosure. Specifically I am trying out different materials that have good heat resistance characteristics to print my RC airplanes with. Since they are a thin wall print very similar to a ...

Re: Supports needed in thin wall print

Thanks Greybeard! I'll give that a try. Doug, Simplify3D is the recommended slicer for 3dLabPrint airplanes which are all thin wall prints with the top and bottom open on almost all the parts. That's the main reason why I bought the software...otherwise I would have stuck with the free software and ...

Re: Supports needed in thin wall print

I should mention if I reduce the support resolution lower to 2.0mm or 1.0mm I can place manual supports...however they disappear when I click the prepare to print button and if I create the gcode the supports do not print.

Supports needed in thin wall print

Hi all, I'm working on a 3dLabPrint plane, specifically the P-51. I've modified the long nose into 2 pieces so that I can install the larger motor for combat but still have the scale looks of the smaller motor. The larger motor does not fit through the front hole so I used Mesh Mixer to slice off th...
