Ailerons out of a tapered wall - slicing weirdness

I ran into a weird issue slicing a part with a wall that tapers. Cura sliced it fine, making the entire wall two layers wide when it 'tapered'. S3D, on the other hand, made a weak "Aileron" out of the wall. https://scontent-lax3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/103587203_10222616728547346_973654524848266478_...

Re: Guide for E3D V6 + CR-10S Settings?

Actually, water bottles are made out of PETG, not PLA. PETG doesn't smell at all when you print it. I've just made hundreds of COVID-19 face shields out of it. ABS is what outgasses, although I inadvertently printed some and it didn't smell as bad as the adhesive on the PEI sheet on the Monoprice MP...

Re: Volcano 0.8mm Nozzle on a CR-10 - Settings?

I'm also having horrible luck. I'm also the volcano on PETG which is pretty bad for stringing ANYWAY. I get a lot of 'leaves' sticking upfrom the interior fill (due to the bridging issues with PETG I run never less than 30% fill). The print heads makes a grinding noise all the time as it prints; it ...

Re: Spiral Floor

Thank you! Looks like it was "external fill pattern" under Infill, which I have to admit I didn't know what was :) It would be great if it could go 'out' as I'll get a drip (I'm using a really big nozzle, .8mm or 1.2mm), but the spiral in at least works! It seems like if I have a hole in the center ...

Spiral Floor

Is there any way to print the floor of a vase mode object with anything other than the flat horizontal lines? I'm printing a clear disk and would like a slightly more artistic pattern than a circle with some lines in the interior. I've thought of doing 100% infill but maybe didn't get the way to mak...

Re: How to keep corners good when printing fast?

Well I spoke too soon. I've printed over a spool of PetG now, and I think maybe there's crud built up? The extruder keeps making a 'clonk' noise and I lose an entire later, then everything above it looks weird, or just ends up being a ball of hair around the print head. Lost print T-3 and T-1, altho...

Re: How to keep corners good when printing fast?

I'm getting fairly good prints now; I set width to "Auto". I'm also running at about 104% extrusion and 60% movement speed. I can't check the other settings as it's running now. I did get a weird problem where something went wrong about halfway through and the upper half "Fuzzed out" and didn't prin...

Re: How to keep corners good when printing fast?

Thanks. I just checked, and for some reason my profile was at 100% of the width. I changed to "auto" and it set it at .48mm (vice .4mm, same size nozzle)

Re: Guide for E3D V6 + CR-10S Settings?

Hi I"m using a V6 on my CR-10. I'm using the dual extruder setup on Thingiverse (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2777673), but only have the stock control board right now, so I haven't actually gotten the second extruder running. Anyway, thought I'd tag on and see if you got any further. I haven't...
