3D printing settings

requires a good knowledge of your printer.

Preferably print all the parts on the same printer in order to have a better conservation of dimensions.

Some parts may require 5 to 6 hours of printing time.

the adhesion of the parts must be controlled in general.

The modeling was tested on an i3 with a 0.4mm nozzle.

First layer must be 0.3 mm thick and must be even over the entire printing surface (autoleveling desired).

Layer height 0.2 mm for large parts. 0.1 or 0.15 mm for small parts.

No support required.

Fill to 15% if necessary. 0% on thin walls.

Brim imperative on thin walls.

Edge thickness for thin workpieces to 0.4mm (single nozzle pass)

Edge thickness for other workpieces 0.8 or 1.2 mm as desired
