Fantasy Castle

Postby bellatrixzen » Sat Jul 01, 2017 4:10 pm

Been waiting to try the large "Fantasy Castle" model as a one piece print.
Called "Medieval Castle" on thingiverse, it URL is: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:862724

Printed in grey Inland PLA, 212/40 temps, .15 layer height.
Total Height is 366mm, and that was scaled down to 80% from original
160 hours of print time.

Also my first print with an Olsson Ruby .4mm nozzle.
Very impressed with the detail put into this model. Was considering painting it, but wow. Don't know I have the patience/time!

Very impressive. What is your method of changing filament spools? I use a pause.

Amazing!

I would be concerned about the nozzle clouting those towers. Did you use a z-hop?

@RiserDog- to change spools, I first made sure the beginning of the new filament was a perfect cut. If the tip of filament is distorted, squished, or burred it won't feed in smoothly and you end up with a gap. No good.
Other than that, I recited Alan Shepard's prayer, then held my breath. All was good!

@woofy- No collisions with the top of the towers, and I used no z-hop (I never do). Only problem I did have was due to a bunch of issues I had after using E-Sun Copperfill. Long story short, I rebuilt the extruder, lost the second extruder, installed the ruby nozzle, and for whatever reason I changed my retract to 1.5mm.
This ended up causing a lot of stringing in the infill areas and I wound up with some tiny blobs at the beginning of travel movements that the nozzle would strike. It never caused any problems other than making my blood pressure rise every time I heard a strike....

@lami3d no additional cooling at all. Everything was same as normal print :)
