I’ve had my Mini for a couple of weeks now, and have had generally good luck printing in PLA. I bought some HIPs to use and tried printing something larger, and I’m seeing several possible issues and not sure what settings I should tweak.
Pictures of the print:
Link to model in question:
I used Lulbot’s Cura v18.x on Windows 10 - I’m not sure on the point revision (I upgraded last night to 19.08 and printed off something smaller with few issues, but have not retried this model yet)
I used the basic eSUN HIPS profile in fast quality, then copied it over to expert. I don’t think I tweaked any other settings though. I was actually using eSUN brand HIPS. The default settings (from memory): print temp 240 / bed temp 110 / print speed 50 / infill 10 or 20% / layer height .25
From the pictures you can see layers separating, the corners lifted off the build plate, and the text that supposed to be in the base of the model is all melted illegibly (when it printed those first layers, you could see the text ok). The print took around 10 hours and I let it go overnight. In the morning when I got up, the item wasn’t stuck to the build plate, but it hadn’t moved (so I assume it came unstuck after the plate cooled off). I checked it a couple times before bed and I never saw the corners lifting.
So any advice on things to check/tweak before I try again?
