4 more JJRC H36 Quads for Whoover conversion have arrived. Today's task is printing matching colour battery holder/PCB stands. Yellow, Purple, and dark green

Several FPV camera mounts in Flex, worked well.

Went to print a PETG part but the filament was misbehaving big time so gave up. PLA worked perfectly. I really must get a drying box going!

The guy has come back quickly bless 'im, but only part answered. He says he uses Simplify3D.

Great, $150, I think not!

He says all except Fus 1 and motor mount are hollow no infill (logical, I'd got that!), but the rest have only one perimeter. Can't see how that would possibly be strong enough for a wing, and his distant photos of a finished transparent material model show what looks like diagonal infill at a very big spacing/low percent, countering what he's saying.  (Poss language barrier).

He says that those that do have infill are 50%. Fus1 is quite a robust box and I'm doubtful that 50% would add usable strength over say 20%, just weight? The actual motor mount I'd have thought better as 100%?

My choice of model is not accidental, it's a float around "scale" so won't suffer 3D stress (or maybe it will if it goes OK.........  :evil )

I hovered over the rainbow filament, but decided against for now, let us know how it runs.

I think it must be, but that does not help resolve the issue I have now bumped up against a couple of times.

Most recently I fancied building a 3D printed plane, and yes I know it will be stupid hours run and likely fall apart, but hey, a man's got to do, etc.

And I have again tripped over the same matter as with some other files.

The plane (as an example) is this one:-

I have asked the owner of the model and await a reply, but the issue I have (and with other models) is that the designer does not give detail on infill settings.  This one is stated as most parts 0,25 layer high, canopy 0,1mm.  But no mention of infill other than for one part at 50%. If all of it was 50% it would too heavy to lift off!

Someone has said that they failed to print OK as the slicing failed to give the right pattern infill, and the designer thinks it is a Slic3r issue. No further detail on exactly what though.

I have downloaded the latest Cura but both it and Slic3r default to 20% infill, so its not specifically a Slic3r issue.

So, here we get to my meagre knowledge limit.................

1. How can you tell what infill % or pattern to set if you are not told, is it buried to see in the .stl somewhere?

2. If the guy uses Cura, and states use 0,25 layer height, which I assume is 0.25mm, why does Cura step from 0.2 to 0.3, as does Slic3r, with no 0.25 to choose?

Some more acetone    :rofl:    (from Shawdereamer's recommendation......very fast, though sending highly flammable liquids by unlabelled ordinary mail surely is against the rules??)

I found that commercial high street NPR was so diluted with water as to be useless. However, some high st places sell the Eternal Beauty range and they do a pure acetone. I got on to this as wife asked a friend and they had a part bottle they gave me. Since then wife bought a new bottle from some High St location (she's not here to ask, but I have a good wife who has good friends!!)

Alternatively it really is not difficult to find via the EBay etc routes.  I'd say don't bother with anything less than pure.

Had to print one in the Stronghero3d Rainbow PLA, the top is printed in Polyalchemy Elixir PLA

Still printing the screw :laugh:

Looks really good   ~~   ~~, but I think I'd prefer the top in a matching shade, it may be the pic but it stands out and I feel takes away from that great subtle rainbow fade. You've made me look at buying some rainbow filament now!!  :rolleyes:   :laugh: :laugh:

General Discussion / Scaling
« on: November 01, 2018, 11:03:47 AM »
The most annoying thing so far I have come across is the strong likelihood that .stl parts in an archive obtained from (say) Thingiverse will display at wildly differing sizes, and it seems extremely difficult to get them back to matching scale.

An example of differing scale IN THE SAME DOWNLOAD is the 2 Fast 2 Furious GTR R34. This loads to have the body to a WAY smaller scale than the wheels.

Ah, THAT Portal.......................................  :nananana:

Played the first one, have to say I wasn't sold on it. Maybe they made a better job of "2".

That looks good but I have no clue what a pumpkin portal turret is  :shrug:

Me too...............

I looked at the Server prog when I got my first printer, the Fab II Mini, but didn't get my head round it at all at the time.

I was, and still am, happy to have it next to the PC and in sight while printing on USb direct.

The i3 Mk3 however is a different matter.

I thought I'd got it sorted with a FlashAir but failed for two reasons, neither documented as it should have been.

One, the printer SD slot cannot cope with 64Gb cards and two, it does not work with the current W04 iteration of the FlashAir card.

Guess what I bought...............  :banghead: :banghead:

I could of course buy a 32Gb W03 (though they are getting scarce and thus over priced) but have lost the will to live!!

Having several laptops with time expired Vista (Spit!) that do not run latest printer software, I really should investigate Linux and a network connection for the Mk3.

I quite like Repetier, so maybe should pay more attention to getting it and Cura working with the Mk3.
