lateral surface to vertical wall boundaries

i notice on prints where a flat surface butts up against a vertical wall it can be difficult for the printer to get all the way to the edge for many layers. i think this is because it doesn't start making the vertical wall until the first layer the feature is on. i think if there were a way to make ...

Re: ABS warping

I'm trying to figure this out right now with a print of mine. I've read before that build plate surface temp can vary from the probe temp by a not insignificant amount. I'm trying on a raft right now with abs at a bed temp of 110. I also preheated the bed for about five minutes before starting the p...

Re: fixing heat creep in the print head

If you're printing abs and don't need the down flow try flipping one of the fans around. from what I know of cooling pc components, having two opposing fans generates turbulence. turbulence is bad for cooling with air. I would even try a little foil tape to make a wind tunnel across the heat sinks. ...

Re: fixing heat creep in the print head

I've been having an issue with 3d solutech pla. I've made a bracket to mount a 40mm fan to the front of the print head to blow back and down over the heatsink and part. I'll know next week if it was successful as I am waiting for the fan to arrive.
