Based on > Customizable Temp Calibration Tower by eibwen
Adds the ability to remove holes and create a text for your test material
Check your material recomended temperature range
Costumize your temperature tower with thinguivers costumizer adding 2 steps above and below the recomended temperature
(If your recomended temperature is 240-270 for example use 220-290 in steps of 10º)
Open your tower in cura or your slicer of choice and duplicate the tower with a short distance between them
In cura go to extensions > post-processing > modify gcode and add a ChangeAtZ trigger by height changing temperature onwards
(For other slicer software you must find yourself how to do this, share back if you do)
Print your towers
- Sacrifice one of the towers by breaking up each section at half the temperature block and look for the first temperature where the layers have a rough break. If the break is clean then the adhesion strenght between layers is not good.
If you find that the first layer with good adhesion and better finish has stringging then you must increase your retraction settings and try again now with a smaller tower to speed up the process.
After you have tuned your temperature print the kickstarter/autodesk validation model
Double tower to test for stringging, look for overall quality but focus on layer adhesion first. Stringging can be compensated on a second test with a smaller tower by editing retraction settings
Breaking and checking layer adhesion
After finding the best temperature you can print the FDM validation from the Kickstarter/Autodesk Open standarts project
