I’m trying to print a Thingiverse object:
My first attempts have failed miserably. Breaking parts free was a challenge but even then I couldn’t get this to spin freely. Eventually forcing it caused the outer ring to break. Looking at the individual parts, it seems that at those points where the print head had to jump from one gear to the next, the gears were very ragged; so much so that the ring breaks trying to spin through those areas.
I printed this using nGen using the medium quality profile in Cura. Is this a retraction issue? Does anyone have thoughts on what I might tweak to make this work? Different filament, different Cura settings, design adjustments???
Thanks in advance for your help.
