Hi,

Please, could you specify your printing parameters?. I've tried, low temperature on bed and extruder, high temperatures, low speed, high speed, nothing works. I'm working with PLA by the way. After a few layers the tube begins to shrink and then I stop printing of course. Thanks. Regards.

I found the gcode file that was on my raspberry pi that I used to print the one in the picture. It is attached. I was printing in orange PLA.
I think is was printed at 30 or 40mm/s, cooling on all the time. Another setting that helps is random seam location so it doesnt develop a defect along the side of the tube.

5; infill extrusion width = 0.67mm
6; solid infill extrusion width = 0.67mm
7; top infill extrusion width = 0.67mm

11M104 S195 ; set temperature

Also, the 3d model of the antenna tube has the wall thickness at 0.40mm. So you should be able to model the thickness of the tube exactly with a single wall.

Hope this helps, let me know if this doesnt work out

I directly printed with your gcode, and it was a surprised that, between layers, bed goes down and up giving time to cool down the layer I suppose, how is that functionality called? Even though after 10 layers or so the tube begins to deform. Perhaps I need to put a little more time betweem each layer so it cools down properly. Thanks. Regards.

OK Slic3er worked thanks. Not to find a suitable holder for my receiver and frame and i'm golden thank you.

for some reason when i add the antenna tube file to Cura the model comes up but there is no print time and will not print

I tried this in Cura this morning, I couldn't get it to show up either. Try using Slic3r, I've included my config file for use with Slic3r.
