I got my Mini a couple days ago (Friday) and printed these two models using HIPS. Prints like a dream
The one on the left was printed that night. It’s about 2" tall. Printed with the “standard” HIPS eSun profile in Cura. I believe the separation occurred sometime after the cold acetone smoothing I gave it the next day. I thought that might have had something to do with it, BUT…
The day after that one (yesterday), I printed the one on the right. It’s about 3" tall, and was printed with the “High Detail” profile. I just noticed that it has the same issue in the same exact spot.
I noticed a few of the popping sounds that i believe are associated with moisture, but had just opened the vacuum sealed bag. Through both prints i’ve maybe heard a total of 5 or so little pops.
I love the Mini, and would really like printing with HIPS if I can get around the separation issue… Is this just part of printing with HIPS? Or are there some things that might help with this?
Thanks for any advice
