We use 2 types of 3D printers. The first one is a Witbox and the second one is a Leapfrog Creatr. Here we are going to explain our printing settings based on our experiences with these 2 machines.
In the first place we must tell you that we use PLA as printing materials.
For this reason these settings are specifically for PLA. Use other settings in case of different printing materials such as ABS!
Wall Thickness: 0.8 mm – The Extrusion Width of both printers’ nozzle is 0.4 mm. Therefore 1 shell is not enough to provide sufficiant strenght, however 2 shells and a total wall thickness of 0.8 mm gives a good print result. This will be a strong and durable USB case in fact.
Infill: 15% – Minimum 15% infill is recommended for stability. Otherwise the outcome might easily brake. Please use this setting for satisfactory result. Obviously you can higher the percentage of infill, but do not lower them for the sake of strength and durability. This is a honeycomb-shaped infill. In case you use this setting of 15% infill one print will take about 30 mins, no more.
Printing Speed: 150 mm/sec – Printing Speed has an influence on quality. This speed might seem to be too fast, but it was tested before, like every other parameter.
