Definitely the most interesting part I have printed so far...

EDIT: Ohhhhhh wow, I am an idiot. Ha. I wondered why it went from 7 hours to 3.5, it's missing half the part. HA

EDIT 2: Time for bed...

Turning combing off should fix that but if it doesn't, I'll glance through other settings to see if I can point to anything else that may help.

Thanks for the tip, I will give it a shot on the next piece.

Welcome to the cool kids club...

Where is this setting in Cura for the first layer? I tried searching the word "concentric" and found nothing. I'm off to look again!

I've not found a setting for concentric anything in Cura, I will look into combing.

My problem isn't stringing or anything, it appears to be that Cura is reducing feed rate for the outer layer for those particular layers. I can see the issue in Cura when I am in layer view, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why it's doing it, or how to fix it. I tried to move to Slic3r, but I have never had any luck with that software. All the same machine settings as in Cura, but it doesn't print worth a crap. To be honest, I gave up after finding out how well Cura worked for me.

Here is what I am getting, and only on one side.

I also tried to randomize the start points hoping it was something to do with the end of the layer, and it seems to have spread the problem around all three corners. There doesn't appear to be any loss of part strength in either case, but the final product of the original method looks better. Or at least I can hide it consistently.

I have also put the part into Netfabb in hopes of finding an error, but nothing. It seems to be a pretty solid design. In addition to Netfabb, I ran it through Meshmixer to see if I could spot anything weird, nothing so far. Until I can get the settings in Slic3r dialed in, I have to assume it's a Cura thing.

I'd be open to trying another slicer software if you guys have a favorite.

i got the Creality 3D Ender-3 as my first 3D printer and it is performing an awesome job. there are many reviews out there stating a similar opinion. included some tweaks (e. g. a glass bed) and some filament you can start printing spending below 200 bucks.

+1 for the Ender 3

Mine was $236 with free shipping on Amazon, and it turns out as good of prints as my brother's fancy $2500 printer.

And we're off!

HatchBox PLA, 1.75mm, Pure White

Ender 3, Cura Slicer
  • .15 mm layer
  • 10% Infill
  • Nozzle 200*, Bed 60*
  • Speed 40 mm/s

4 Hrs 32 Mins, and what happens when you print something in black right before a white print.

So it appears there is a change in the way Cura slices the Tile Top file from layer 24-37, and it's causing an artifact to be printed in the outmost part of the layer. Still trying to narrow down why, and how to fix it.

Excellent project here. I am going through the CAD files, and will be printing off one of the bases tonight to see how the Ender 3 handles it.

Are you planning a build log section in the forum? It would be a great place for people to keep progress reports and individualized problem/fix info.

I've been building RC and multirotors for a while now, and have a couple of ideas off the top of my head to make the wiring and control board a bit easier, especially for the point-n-print crowd.
