Printed well.

It is essential to get a pristine first layer and brim!

Had to pause the print a couple of times because the supports moved during printing and breaks/gaps were forming. I used tape to realign and sometimes fill support pieces that were missing. It took over 7 hours to print. I checked every hour or so and made my tape adjustments as required. I watched for several minutes after each adjustment.

As the supports got taller, there were some scary clicking sounds as the printhead caught on the edged of the supports.

Sliced with CURA 4.0 with the Ender 3 profile.

speed 40mm
brim width 10mm
nozzle temp 205c
.04mm nozzle

were the head its cool but where is it

Thanks for this great addition to Cosmo's work.

This model doesn't print correctly, as the supports don't work. They start coming apart as they build higher. Probably a thicker base is needed also as they came off the bed (twice) even when using a 65 C heated glass plate. Disappointing.

I think this kind of support is not exactly meant for FDM/FFF. They are more for SLA/SLS printing.

Looks really nice - I am going to try it out today BUT what I really want ia voronaized version of this. Any meshmixers there that can do this ?

What recommended in-fill is recommended ? 10 or 30% ?

Fantastic work mate! I'm going to print one for my partner as a birthday present!
