Re: Print is lifting

I print PETG with a bed temperature of 85. I also put down a layer of Elmer's glue stick (the purple stuff that turns clear when it dries), which not only helps prevent lifting but also acts as a release agent when the print is done. When I was printing on a bed sheet, I used glue there also to help...

Re: Snapmaker 2.0 (A350) ?

I use a profile for my Snapmaker 1.0 that I fully expect to work with the A350 after adjusting the bed size. I'm not sure about being able to print directly from S3D: I actually use an OctoPi as a network interface for my Snapmaker and just upload the G-code files to it and print from there. If the ...

Re: how to flatten the top of a model

It depends on how deep of an impression you want to make. You'll just have to experiment.

Re: Really bad seam lines!

You usually trade quality when you go for speed. How does it come out if you randomize the start points for the layers?

Re: Can't get this stl to print as is

Probably not an optimized model. Many times, you can fix gaps like this by going into the Mesh menu and selecting "Separate connected surfaces".

Tetrahydrofuran dissolves PETG and evaporates quickly. But it is hard to find and have to be used outside because of toxic fumes.
I've tried some solvent solutions on PETG with limited success. I have not tried Gorilla Glue, which I think would work. It would expand into the inter-layer spaces.

Re: how to flatten the top of a model

That's a design issue. You should go back into your design app and fix it there.

However, you can fix it in S3D by going to the Advanced tab in the process window and specifying a "stop at height" value (and checking the checkbox). Leave the "start at height" checkbox unchecked.

Re: Easiest 3D modeling software?

- Fusion 360 - I recently started using Fusion, it's bit counter intuitive for solidworks/onshape/creo users but on the other hand very similar, it is parametric but also have a mesh editing too so should be easier for organic stuff (e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRMzg2X_sX0 ). There's also ...

Re: Easiest 3D modeling software?

I come from an engineering background (electrical) and of the software I've tried (Blender, TinkerCAD, FreeCAD, Fusion 360), I've liked Fusion 360 the best. There's a bit of a learning curve, but once you get the gist of how Fusion 360 operates, modelling is pretty quick and easy, for me at least. B...
