Lid Fail ABS

Post by ThatDirectorGuy » Mon Nov 03, 2014 7:30 am

I am not sure why this is failing. It is the lid to a box. The printer starts with a nice grid but it is suppose to be flat instead it does this crazy mesh.

What has to be changed? I imagine something in the STL file itself? Attached is also the STL file. Thanks

What slicer are you using? and do you have raft enabled?

Yeah it looks like the model might be a few mm off the bed when the print starts and so it's building a raft or support of some kind before actually beginning the model. The model itself looks fine so I don't think it's a problem with the model itself..

Also, were you trying to make this ship model about a year ago? I seem to remember something like this... I think the conclusion we came to was that it needed some redesign back then... This is looking good!
I loved my Rostock so much I now sell them in Oz :)

This is indeed the ongoing Pirate Radio 3D Print project from April. It has been an ongoing saga. I am trying to fulfill these 35 perks for an Indiegogo campaign. When I am actually printing viable pirate ships I am going to do a nice long write up about my experience it has been interesting and educational. I usually use Slicer but it hasn't been getting along with OSX so I am using Matter Control and Cuda.
