Re: How can I get honeycomb as an exterior fill pattern too?

Looks good! We appear to have a somewhat similar interest in gizmo's https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SezbbfoszEI&feature=youtu.be The "Show More" expands to show more :lol: Nice! Looks like you enjoy mechatronics. I suspect you would enjoy building your own CNC machine. The MPCNC is one where you c...

Re: How can I get honeycomb as an exterior fill pattern too?

The purpose of this particular gizmo is to completely eliminate the audible PWM fan noise on the Prusa I3 MK3: MK3_version1.jpg Now it can finally be silent. :D In addition to ventilation, the honeycomb also allows me to read the frequency and duty cycle on the internal LCD display, should I wish to.

Here it is with the PCB bolted to the standoffs using M3 screws:

Re: How can I get honeycomb as an exterior fill pattern too?

Thanks! I'll have to try to translate that into Fusion360.... Before knowing about your technique, what I did was far more primitive, yet very quick: honeycomb_standoffs.jpg Basically, I pierced the floor of the enclosure with the stand-off boltdown holes and then turned up the number of perimeters ...

Re: How can I get honeycomb as an exterior fill pattern too?

Excellent!! Thank you for the Honeycomb infill tip :D I make many electronic/gizmo boxes and, if venting is needed, I add holes (in the model). But, now I’ll start using honeycomb infill. Wish it could be done on side walls (as part of the the box) instead of separately then, pieced together. I mad...

Re: How do I get gyroid infill pattern in Simplify3D?

It turns out to have better strength characteristics than any of the other infill patters:

How do I get gyroid infill pattern in Simplify3D?

https://mattshub.com/2018/03/15/gyroid-infill/

Apparently the Prusa Slic3r has it, but I'd rather use Simplify3D if I can.

Anyone?

How can I get honeycomb as an exterior fill pattern too?

I'm building a box for an electronics project, and I want it to be well ventillated so that heat can escape. It would be great, therefore, if I could make the exterior infill pattern be honeycomb, but it doesn't appear to be an option. It is an option for interior infill, but that wouldn't help in i...

How to keep corners good when printing fast?

Here's a test object that I'm printing at 3000mm/min using a 0.8mm volcano nozzle and PETG filament and linear advance K=20. Layer height is 0.4mm and extrusion width is 0.96mm. The corners look acceptable to me: 3000mm.jpg However, if I increase the speed to 4000mm/min, the rest of the model stays ...
