Sorry for the delay in my reply! I've been tunnel visioned in making my printer cabinet....
I haven't had any drooping issues that I'm aware of, but I try to design my parts to prevent that if possible. I did print the CTRL-V test part a few times. Once I understood what it was and what it was doing to my Taz, I did a comparison between CURA and Slic3r using the settings listed below. Here are the results of the 2 parts side by side, the CURA part is on the left, the Slic3r part is on the right. The parts were printed with the overhang facing the fan (machine X+). I'll put the print specifics right after the pictures.
In CURA, I used the same settings I had listed previously -
Extruder at 252°
Bed at 95°
Print speed 50mm/sec
Layer height .2
Shell thickness .7
Filament Dia. 2.91 (calipered)
In Slic3r, I had used the profile HERE
provided by Lulzbot for the Taz 5.
I have to be honest, and say that I'm really not impressed with either of these at all. I've made a few other parts from HIPS, but when I want detail or corners, I end up going to PLA. I haven't tried out ABS yet (Still finishing up my printing cabinet), but that's on the list soon!
I'd like to add that the busts and trees that you're attempting are pretty awesome! Those sorts of things intimidate me.... Until I REALLY understand how to keep my printer happy, I don't dare try something like those. I still have "newbie fever"
Yeah. So wiping the bed with acetone while it's still at 110°c is a BAD IDEA mmmkay...
