Better print results on lithophane night lights

Fri Jan 17, 2020 10:37 am

Simplify3D saved the day! We 3D printed several lithophane night lights using Snapmaker 1.0 and included Snapmakerjs software. We noticed they had several abnormalities in the printed model (watch YouTube video and see attached pics). After thinking about it and suspecting the gcode file may be the culprit, we purchased and downloaded Simplify3D (I am not an affiliate or employed by the company) and redid the gcode files. After printing several night lights with Simplify3D gcode files, it was apparent the issues were with the Snapmakerjs gcode files.

I made a YouTube video showing the issues. I love the Snapmaker printer, but the quality with the night lights was an issue and just wanted others to know how they may be able to fix the problems with other models they're encountering using Snapmakerjs software.
