Love it! it looks really great!

It looks to me that you were heavily over extruding at the time of this print. I could be wrong, but I just wanted to be sure.

Pure visual 3d-porn.

Care to share your skeinforge settings?

For this one:


I used MBI black 3mm filament (measured at 2.84mm average)

Used this profile calculator:


with layer height 0.25mm, thread width 0.5mm and feed rate of 40mm/sec

So Carve is set:
Layer Thickness 0.25mm
Perimeter Widt
h over Thickness: 2.0

Fill is:
Interior Infill over Exterior Infill: 1.0
Grid Rectangular
0.3mm Overlap
0.25 solidity
2.0 Width/Thickness

Feed Rate: 40 (don't go faster than your bot can handle)
Flow Rate: 1.4964 (from MakerBlock Profile thingy)

I am using the MiseryPusher ( http
://http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:7129www.thingiverse.com/thing:7129 ) which has the MakerGear geared stepper.

Reversal Speed: 30 RPM
Reversal time: 120mS
Push Back: 120mS
Threshold : 1mm

I used 230 deg C for the nozzle and 150 deg C for the build platform. The build platform is knock-off 4" (100mm) kapton that I clean with Windex
glass cleaner.

So far it works for me :)

My stepstruder MK6+ is in the mail, and when it arrives i will definitely try these skeinforge settings.

Based on your "takes forever" comment I kicked it off before I left this morning:

Also, the gcode is 32MB, 812,188 lines long, and ReplicatorG silently fails to read it (either in conjunction with the model or alone). I guess I'll have to figure out why...

Are you running Linux? I remember that Java can't automatically figure out its max memory requirements or something under Linux...

My Gcode was 36MB, and it turned into a 15.4MB S3G file without any problems . . . I always use the SD card, so once I make the SG3 , I typically ditch the gcode file.

I am using RepG 0024 . . . other than time it always seem to handle the high-resolution stuff fine.

Feel free to turn fuss with the $fn= in the *.scad it is crazy fine resolution as is.

I don't generally do pink, but that print looks fantastic! (I must be getting in touch with my inner Mr. Pink) :)

I've had a pound of pink since I bought the bot. I am GONNA use it up! Hey, the girls love this on their desk :)
