3D Printing layers separating Answered

Hi!

I have a project going with a 3D printer. Is a 4" X 4" X 10"  square enclosure used for holding electronics in an ROV. Whats happening is that the plies are separating. Not a good thing for an underwater vehicle. Has anyone experienced this with a larger 3D printed object? Will upload a pic when I get to my home computer.

If you need it waterproof you have to print in ABS and seal the surfaces with ABS juice, everything else will not be watertight.
Layer seperation is usually caused by wrong print settings or a bad calibration of the machine / firmware.
