Thread: Bad 3D Benchy

    Bad 3D Benchy

    My 3D Benchy test print did not come out great. I have a printrbot simple metal.

    Do you have any recommendations on how I can make my prints better? Thank you!

    Please post a list of the settings settings you used, and what printer,
    also don't print in transparent materials, you cant clearly see all the defects

    As above, please post a link to your slicer setting and that will really help.

    However, a few points:

    It seems that your Benchy is fairly small and this may affect the quality of the model. (try printing bigger if possible)

    Also, your layer height (resolution) seems quite high. I would suggest a layer height of 0.1mm. Or if you want a really detailed model perhaps try 0.05mm layer height.

    I can also see your infill lines showing through. Although this is common and probably not something that is very bad, you can fix this by having a thicker wall (try 0.8mm) or asking your slicer to print the wall before the infill.

    I hope some of these above points help. With a picture of your settings I might be able to be of more help.

    I am using the Printrbot Simple Metal with an X axis upgrade.

    your pics of the Cura settings are too small toe read

    the other pictures looks like the temp is a bit too high, and the has a lot of ringing,you could adjust the jerk settings so the are slower, and try a lower and slower temp

    Not entirely sure what you are expecting - but those prints are quite good.
    And yep, even i can't read the settings even if I get real close to the monitor :-)

    I agree here it looks like you are running a bit hot. Back it down a bit and repost your setting and we can help you clean those prints up a bit.
