Rocket Bolt High Flyer by wildseyed Nov 23, 2012


This is a redesign of a rocket I flew when I was just a boy. That one flew several flights reaching 2700 feet, using Estes C engines, but I would not recommend it for this one. Stick to A and B.

There are various challenges to a successful print with this, and any other object that has thin walls, inner circles, and small pointy features, but with careful adjustments to you slicing parameters, and a decent hot end, you can get some really rewarding results.

My preferred slicer is Skeinforge, so my suggestions may or may not apply if you are using one of the newer slicing utilities out there.

Bottom: Some people printing on glass use bottom to get a better grip on the first layer. I leave it disabled and just home my bed closer to the glass. For this print, I have raft enabled, so it does not matter either way.

Carve: Edge Width over Height (Ratio) 1.8, Layer height (mm) 0.3 / 300
