While looking for some posts about Simplify3d infill, i found this article. I’m relatively new in 3D printing (ca. 250 printing hours on an Ultimaker 2). There are lot’s of good tips in here (none I wouldn’t agree with). If I had read that earlier, it could have saved me quite some poor results. I would strongly emphasize too, to keep notes on every print, to work systematic and keep the stuff clean.
I’ve learned quite a lot from printing calibration pieces, which can be found in Thingiverse. In the meantime I have modified my printer with an improved feeder, a better fan bracket and a hotend with easily exchangeable E3D nozzles (the Ultimaker 2 is a quite good printer, but has much room for improvement).
I’m quite impressed from the TAZ 5, which is on my evaluation list for my next 3D printer.
Many thanks for your great compilation of your experiences, which assures me, that I’m on the right way.
Kind regards and happy printing
