Total Noob here, I've been printing for about two weeks now on my Creality CR-10 mini with varying success. I was initially using Cura 3.1.0 to slice my prints then it was suggested by a co-worker who has been printing for some time to use S3D as he says it is "simply the best" slicing software out there, so I did and again with varying results.
Yesterday someone on the FB Creality CR-10 group suggested I try Chris Elkins' profile and just change the bed size as it was configured for a S4 bed, so again in search of a better print I downloaded it and printed a benchy, it was better than the profile I was using from my co-worker, but why?
What level of understanding does Chris have of this printer, the process and printing in general that makes his profile so good and how does one obtain this information?
I've looked at the setting and researched terms I do not understand, but the explanation sometimes leves be just as in the dark as I was before!
Clearly there is no one size fits all when it comes to 3D printing with all the different printer and material manufacturers out there but I am eager to learn, and am not sure where to start.
Any help would be appreciated.
Made this with professional 'functional and aesthetic' FDM parts in mind, it's all I need in a benchy (to test filaments, finish, and strength).
This is an advanced benchy so it's up to you how to use it, also it's 5 bucks.. gotta buy another S3D license LOL. jk <3
Or you could make your own - of buy mine and have some piece of mind :) Happy printing
