That's a QUESTION specifically for the RAISE folks-perhaps. I'm not sure one can get them once you've overwritten.

Currently there is no way to find out the print settings from .gcode file. We are trying to develop the function to add settings into .gcode file and find a way to export the settings out.

This is what I went with the head...but I ended up taking off dense supports for the rest of the parts as it was real difficult to take off.

Dense support: 80
Layers: 5-10

Horizontal Offset: 0.4
Infill Support: 20
Support Type: Grid

This would be such a great feature, I'm still new to the 3D printing world and I am currently writing my settings down on paper or screen-shotting them for each project.

Great project, I look forward to seeing how it looks when it's finished. The level of detail is astounding!

Sorry I missed your first post. The head took about 1kg of material and almost a week to print. I went with .1mm layer height at a lower outer shell speed. I printed it on my raise 3d N2+.

The evolution of this torso piece. 1.5 cans of filler primer later and ridiculous amounts of sanding. Looks like this bad boy is ready to prime!

holy moly that looks great. How careful did you have to be with the sanding? You only did 2 shells right?

This is incredible. Well done and am jealous of such a clean smooth print!

I had some issue printing on the overhangs of this torso piece. If you look at the first picture, you will also notice almost like a blob formation towards the bottom. Luckily location wise they are not very visible. While I have smoothed most of this on via hours of sanding and post process, I would like to get some feedback on how to prevent this in future prints.

Thanks! But some areas were all but smooth. Just a great deal of post processing to smooth it out. Take a look a my last post.

That's super cool. Great modeling/sculpting and finishing!

There's not a lot you can do about that drooping unless you use support (which is usually as much post work getting smooth). I'd say, simply breaking the shape down in smaller pieces to orient better on the build platform would be the best bet.

Looking great though.

Thanks Rob! Yea the lower part of the bust was printed upside down so the slope was flipped and printed out great. I also dove in head first into a really big print. I only had one other smaller print under my belt before this so this has been quiet a learning experience. By the way, great work on your YT videos! How long have you been 3d modeling?

Well, you’re starting off great. That’s going to be really nice.

Thanks for the compliment. I’ve been modeling off and on for around 20 years, but have never been too serious about it. I’m guessing yours is Z-Brush? I keep telling myself I’m gong to learn that every time a new version comes out. I can never make it past the crazy interface though. ;)
