Steep angle issue?

Sun Apr 24, 2016 11:35 am

Could anyone give me some advice on how to sort the issues in the attached images?

As you can see, it's not doing well on the overhangs.

Thanks

Try lower the layer height. That will allow it to print overhangs better. You may also want to adjust your cooling and fan speed settings, since overheating can also cause overhangs to look really bad.

If that doesn't work, you probably need to look at adding support material.

in addition to what carl said, lower your printing temp a little and also change your outline direction to inside-out.
