just load the STL, generate the GCode and print. Oh, and then clean up the print...

nice! very impressive print quality :)

(wonder why the images took so long for thingiverse to process...)

Thanks. (I don't know, they aren't the normal 1024x768 and I tried a PNG first, when that didn't work I tried a JPG, then they both appeared together...)

oe going to try this one great job btw

So was it a really nice print or a really good clean-up job? :-P

jempty - in reply to Guest

This printed beautiful with the MK6. No clean up needed.

Nice, my MK6 arrived yesterday, I'm looking forward to getting it made and installed...

Just printed 3 as tests on our new T-O-M. Very nice. Yes, cleanup - there are thin filaments to clean but, easy with exacto and emery. A couple of minutes. Odd thing though - I used the one that is a sample in ReplicatorG and half way through the print the knot layers shift about 1-2mm for the entire object.

Often that shift is caused by the print head catching on the object and the X or Y carriage slipping, make sure you've got nice tight X and Y belts and hopefully the shift will disappear :)

I had to spend a few minutes cleaning up the filament between the loops, only difficult because of the intricate shape :)
