Doesn't Matter


150-250 microns


Print module at 102% in order for the drawers to fit! Rafts are important for the drawers. Without the raft the drawer will have a square-ish bottom and you will need to sand it in order for it to fit in the module. Rafts are important for the module too. The tests I did without rafts produced a bad first layer.

My Settings:
Print module at 102%
Print drawer at 100%
Shell Thickness: 1.2mm
Printing Temperature: 208C
Bed Temperature: 60C
Time: about 5 hours 40 minutes
