This was just a quick test design, took me about 10/15min to model in Autodesk Fusion 360 (I'm still learning this software, my main software of use is Solidworks) then exported it as an STL to Cura. I wanted to experiment with the 3D printer a little bit more, mainly to speed up the process of 3D printing as I am only using an Anet A8 FDM 3d printer, but slowly exploiting its capabilities.
I am yet still to improve on the quality of the prints, but overall I was pretty impressed with the speed it printed this little project without any major malfunctions.
Additionally I wanted to test how will the print perform without creating any support for it, and I think it did amazing, considering it was printing slightly overhanging bits.
Overall this was just a very quick little project I wanted to test my 3D printer and explore the printing settings further and on the other hand I also wanted to practise a little more with Fusion 360 to get my hang around how things work in the software.
Please stay tuned guys, as hopefully within short period of time I will be uploading many more different designs of products or accessories :D
Hope you like this little thing :)
So my overall settings for this project, were as follow:
Layer Height: 0.3mm
Wall Line count: 2
Top layers: 4
Density @ 10%
Extruder - The brim was printed at 200 degrees and once 1st layer started, I dropped the temp to be 190 degrees
Bed: 40 degrees (heat up) then off when printing started so kept maintaining around 30/32 degrees.
Printing speed: 70mm/s
NO Support needed for this print
