So today I wanted to test the quality of my 3d printer. I lowered the layer height to 0.1mm. Normally I print at 0.2mm for “quality” prints and 0.4mm for “quick” prints. Below you can see a picture comparing the differences between the Bulbasaur I printed and a bracket for future printer upgrades. The bracket was 0.4mm layer height. You can barely see the layers on the Bulbasaur, but you can CLEARLY see the layers on the bracket! These are both fresh off the printer with no surface finishing done.
As you can tell by the pictures on the left, there is a gaping hole in the “bulb” of the print. From what I could observe by watching the timelapse video below, it was a combination of no cooling on the hot end facing the print to cool in between layers, and using too small of an infill setting (15%) causing it to have to run long bridges, which I don’t have completely tuned for. So both of those are on the list of things to be addressed! Let me know what you think, and see the timelapse below!
