    Perspective on the print specs for this design using a Flashforge Creator Pro

    Hi there

    Just posting this thread for a quick perspective on what sort of settings I should use to print the attached model. Originally someone else made one for me in about 9 hours with the same model of printer, which I am having difficulty understanding as it is projected to take me about 23hours?

    Appreciate any advice.

    depends entirely on your settings and what resuklts you want to get

    Using flashprint at 0.3mm layer height and 70mm/s 15% infill and 3 perimeters and layers - it clocks in at 5.47 hours and 133gms

    How smooth do you want it and do you own any files and sanding blocks :-)
    A faster, lower resolution print and 10 minutes judicious sanding, can save you many hours of printing at higher resolutions

    0.2mm layer = 7hours and 51 minutes
    so logically 0.1mm = around 16 hours.

    0.16mm layer height gives you around 9 hours. zip file of the .x3g attached.

    The mistake most people make is using the wrong infill and way way too much of it.

    15% TRIANGLE infill not only gives you the best all round strength to material ratio, on a model this size it's also pretty dense.

    Learn what settings do what and never ever use a Stock 'normal, fast, quality' style setting for anything :-)
    Always know what you used and why.
