Trying to print a Lego minifig head (smaller footprint than the bulk of the print) and it has a tendency to blow out the base and sink since the surface area is small. I’ve tried extra infill support and reducing the bed temp a couple hours into the print. Is there another way I could prevent it aside from the obvious split it in two?
Here’s what they look like (yes, lots of trial prints and wasted filament, bear with me!):
From left to right: 1) Perfect print (reduced bed temp two hours in), 2) 110C throughout print, 3) 110C throughout print (although the model was scaled down and material deleted for the cutaway - it merely caused the model to lean towards the heavier non cutaway section), 4) Reduced temp to 75C two hours in (the smaller model caused the print to go quicker than the ‘perfect’ one and hence the temperature reduction was too late - the latent heat in the model was enough to distort the base).
