Re: Print Resolution

Yes, leave unchecked. If you print the external perimeters first, you'll be printing in mid-air for some overhangs. :) Ok, so leave that box unchecked to print inside to outside perimeters. Thanks for the info. Like I said earlier in the thread, I'm using the Slic3r profiles that are on the Lulzbot...

Re: Print Resolution

What slicer are you using? But, no, it sounds like this would print from the outside in and that is not what you want. For these prints, I'm using Slic3r and the medium PLA profile from the Lulzbot site. The only difference between the prints is that I raised the temp when I changed to the v2 extru...

Re: Print Resolution

Have you tried printing perimeter "inside out" on parts with overhangs like this? It can make a big difference as there is a bead for the overhanging bead to adhere to. DO I do this by checking the box that says to do outside perimeters first? orienting the part so that the overhang section is dire...

Re: Print Resolution

Alright. I got my Ulti2 back and have replaced the nozzle on the TAZ4 with the new v2 extruder tool head. Time to post some results with the overhang test. I may have jinxed myself. Now, my Ulti2 is having problems :roll: Here is a side by side comparison of the TAZ and Ulti2 with the overhang test....

Re: Print Resolution

I am waiting on the new TAZ 5 nozzles to be back in stock and have placed the order. So, I'm excited for the new version.

I still haven't been able to do the overhang test on either of my printers. Just know that I haven't forgotten about it.

Re: Print Resolution

The thought definitely occurred to me regarding the dual fan setup of the U2. I will attempt to print the overhang test as soon as I can. I currently have the U2 'rented out' to a classroom teacher (I work in a school district). When I get it back, I will do the test print. So far, all of my print a...

Re: Print Resolution

Here are the pics of the same part with the stock fan duct put back on the TAZ4 (the one without the heat sink duct). IMG_1757.JPG IMG_1756.JPG IMG_1755.JPG This print was done using the Black PLA (I'm running low on the green stuff). I used the Slic3r config provided on the lulzbot website, "medium...

Re: Print Resolution

@Brew4You I thought that might be one of the issues. I don't think that's the case though because I've tried to print individual pieces as well. The last images I posted were from attempt to only print one piece of the heart gears (big lobe piece) I tried it again using some new settings. Basically,...

Re: Print Resolution

Here are some pics of the print where I tried edlink's suggestions. cooling threshold brought down to 10 mm/s, layers seam pos set to random, and also unchecked the "avoid crossing perimeters" box. IMG_1740.JPG IMG_1741.JPG I am still printing using PLA - This time I tried 190/60. I get a smoother e...
