More about bigness

Postby venosa » Fri Jul 08, 2016 11:57 am

Finished my first big print, with big layers.
From the printer side all went fine. S3D as always lied about time consuming, calculated 51h but at the end was something around 60-65. I'm not sure because it finished overnight (a log would be useful).
From my side I don't know, the model was better on rendering then in flesh and bones. Plus I don't know yet how to fix the alignment between the two parts that need to be joined.

Black PLA premium from 3DX (Brazil)
0.48 layers, 60mm/s
First 250mm with 15% infill and 2 shells, then no infill.

great print :!: , but a bit scary :-)

For the alignment, if you scaled the model, I think you have to calculated the scaling factor manually and adjust the 2nd part accordingly. I discussed this issue (scaling factor not shown correctly) in another thread.

Forget my post, I always forget that you mostly use S3D and Cura. :-)

I use also Ideamaker. But in this case I rather preferred S3D, I want two differentsettings on the same print.
Cura I use only for Wireprint experiments.

BTW I didn't scaled. What I mean by alignment is that I printed it in two parts that need to be joined but the flatness of the coincident planes are not that flat. One of the parts have the join plane printed at the bottom (raft side) the other (the bigger part, with the skull) have the flat side on top. I think this one have some distortion.

We have added the relative scale this time. Please try the new ideaMaker.

It looks so big and so cool.
A wonderful project to proof the stability of N2P.

love the concept
I really want to try and print in big scale myself but I so afraid about things could go wrong
great work:)
