I’ve been trying to print
and having an interesting problem. Well, many problems, but one in particular that’s been surprising.
Seemingly independent of anything I’ve found to adjust so far, even when I get the flow rate way, way down (far too low overall), I am still getting so much extra plastic on that overhang that even after a few layers it looks awful:
Does anyone know what I’m doing wrong?
I’m using an 0.5 nozzle, as the designer and most of the success stories on thingiverse indicate. I’ve been reading extensively (http://forums.reprap.org/read.php?262,132070,133925 - http://forums.reprap.org/read.php?262,163546,163823 - http://forum.seemecnc.com/viewtopic.php?t=1009&p=4253), experimenting (going fast, going very slow, bridge flow ratio, cutting the filament diameter, 0.2 to 0.3 layer heights, lowering the extrusion multiplier, temperatures from 170 - 200, even lowering the nozzle diameter) and thus far haven’t hit it yet.
Has anyone ever printed a model like this on the Taz? With 0.1mm XY tolerance I would think it’d be doable, and clearly others with different equipment are printing it fine, one even with slic3r?
