Just made my very first print today with my newly operational KITTAZ!
I printed up a herringbone gear that I want to use to help a friend with his art project. Overall I think it came out decently. Modeled with OpenSCAD, sliced with Cura.
- 0.1mm layer height
- Lulzbot silver PLA
- 180º nozzle, 60º bed
- fan on (stock shroud)
- UHU glue stick directly on glass (no PET)
- 50mm / sec speed
For a sense of scale, the gear is about 12mm thick. Interestingly the first half of the print is definitely worse than the second. Attached are some detail photos of trouble area. I had quite a hard time getting it off of the bed, but some water and a cheese slicer did the trick.
EDIT I forgot to mention: I did an extruder calibration test by extruding 100mm of filament and measuring the actual length extruded and it was so close (within 1 or 2mm) that I didn’t even bother to adjust the steps in the firmware.
I would love feedback on how I might improve my quality. Thanks!
