Beginner 3D Printing Class
Perfect! Starting the Beginner Class now. So happy I have time right now to get back into this. Thanks so much for your great tutorials. :)
Thanks so much. I tweaked a few things but was afraid to tweak certain advanced settings for fear of doing something wrong. I figured out how to see the layers, so that was a big help in troubleshooting.What I ended up doing was just scale it up to 1.1 of the model and that seemed to do the trick as far as the layers. It's printing now at high detail and I'm expecting it all to end up ok.

Using a Slicer
Name That Keychain
I followed all instructions. I've got a lulzbot mini and used Cura to print. The little ring didn't print for the keychain. Do you know why not? It shows in the model. I made it 3mm on the outside with a 2mm hole cylinder..... Is it too thin to print? If I used high detail would it have printed (I printed with standard detail).I don't know how to do the slicer in Cura - would that have showed me beforehand that the printing of the ring would fail? I've got version 20.01. Any pointers you can give me so I can troubleshoot would be appreciated. Thanks!Here are some photos.
Hi there! Here's my completed keychain.I think it was last year you had a much more detailed 3d printing class on the site. Is that still available? I can't find it. It involved calipers and a model for figuring out shrinkage of material and all sorts of good stuff.

So there's all sorts of reasons why my print sucked, but I sure learned a ton. I printed it handle down which means a ton of support structures which was silly. Plus I reduced the stamp smaller than my printer resolution could handle. Crucial details are missing from my stamp face.I'm using Cura with a Lulzbot Mini, and I realize now that I could have seen how bad the stamp face would print by looking at it in layer view.I may be jumping the gun because I know you will talk about support structures later on, but what is the recommended way to make the surface smooth if you have to use them? (A dremel?) Just removing the structures leaves lots of rough patches.Also, are there finishing techniques to make the surfaces look more polished using the standard filaments? (PLA, ABS, HIPS?)
Thanks! I followed you.
Thanks. I have a Lulzbot. That TPU is a great price! I just need to find it in 3mm.
I don't use wax, but I do need a little ink stamp for some gift bags I use in my business. Not sure if this will print well, but if it does, this will actually be something I use! I used the 3D Printed Portrait tutorial link you provided above to figure out how to import my business logo into Fusion. Thank you so much for this great class. I stumbled upon it just as I was trying to figure out how to use my new 3D printer and this is EXACTLY what I needed.
