Re: Ripples in the surface layer of my prints, Help!

What infill density are you currently using. I'd recommend at least 30-40%. Also, you should add more surface layers. You could also enable ironing mode if you are using one of the latest versions of Cura (not the one that comes with the CR10 - get it here).

Re: Best budget 3D Printer ?

Another option is the Creality Ender. For precision, you can get a smaller head (0.2mm), but I'd stick with the stock at first (0.4mm) until you know you need better precision.

Whatever you get, you can always find someone to help here.

Can't wait to see the final shelf. Not the print, but one of her finished units.

Re: What's everyone working on

You may not be able to share the stl files, but you can share the final pictures and even a finished shelf. Helps promote her product.

Good luck. Let us know how it turns out. If it works, great. If it smokes, post pics. :-D

Upgraded my 3D Printer computer station (upstairs computer) just now to Ubuntu 20.04. Other than that, been busy with work from home.

Re: MINTEMP Error help needed - Destroyed my hot end!

Not sure if your display looks like mine, but mine always shows the temp of the hot end and the bed. Try gently pulling the thermistor out of the hot end and just holding it between your fingers, see if the temperature registers. If it doesn't, then you have a bad thermistor. They're very delicate a...

Re: Printing as a solid when it should have an open top

I loaded this in Cura 4.5 and messed around a bit. Initially when sliced, it had infill throughout, including the cylinder, so yes it is printing as a solid. When I dropped infill to 0%, the layers look ok until 101 where it starts covering the top. Definitely a Sketchup issue. I had similar issues ...

Re: Cannot Believe EveryOne is on Stay At Home Orders

Sorry. While I am staying home, I am still working. 90% of my job can be done remotely (installing new hardware in the rack requires office time, but everything else is remote). Plus, we're in the tail end of a major release push. My workdays are ~7:30am - dinner, with a few meetings after 9pm with ...

Re: How to Reduce Wall thickness

Layer height will have a big play here, along with hot end temp. Go with a finer layer height and a higher temp (+10C) and you should see better results. You may also have to figure out a way to do some annealing . You can usually find a cheap toaster oven at a thrift store that works perfect for sm...

Re: Feasibility of printing this part

Yes, if you have the skill to model it. Printing is the easy part. For the best detail, use the finest setting. It will print a lot slower, but it will come out very nice. I'd print it upright with supports on the inside (if needed).

There are plenty of examples (like this) on thingiverse.

Re: How to Reduce Wall thickness

There may be a reason to keep the mask thickness as it is. It helps reduce potential layer gaps, and improves strength where it is needed. Do you have a link to the STL?
