First post – got my Mini yesterday!
I printed several test models, using Cura (default quick settings), using HIPS and T-Glase filament. Most turned out perfect.
But… One model is giving me problems. The printer simply “skips” some areas (i.e., retracts filament and jumps) as if there was nothing to print in that particular area. Layer after layer. Whereas everything should be connected, I end up with a bunch of separate pieces on the build plate.
I suspect this has something to do with the fine detail in the model. Perhaps some areas of the print are simply too narrow for the Mini to print? Or maybe there is a setting in Cura that sets a threshold for the smallest line width to be printed?
The model is the “Tie Fighter” design from here:
I have of course laid it “flat” on the surface in Cura, and increased the Z-scale by 6x. I also tried increasing the XY scale by 0.5x, which seemed to help but did not eliminate the problem.
Thanks in advance for any tips!
