Exemples with Cura

Vers 1.1 April the 17th of 2017

1. Professor Monkey

    Find here a positionning image of a little Professor Monkey on the Ultimaker 2Go.

    Dimensions XYZ = WidthDepthHeight  (Largeur,Profondeur,Hauteur ) = ~32X58X29 mm. 

   And here some parameters to print it in PLA.

  Printing temperature  = 210°C

  Travel speed = 40 mm/s ( to allow a good positionning ).

   Overlap = 30% ( for Cura 2.4.0 set Skin Overlap = 30% ). To allow a good adhesion for tiny sub-parts

   of the main part , good shell and top and bottom faces, adhesion with the infill.

  

  Repair model : Options A and C.

  Brim ( jupe ) has no importance as you use a Raft.

  Lines supports with a good density ( for well-done part builing ) because they will be easier to remove.

  Raft  : with Cura 2.4.0 you must add some parameters.

              Raft Middle Spacing ( espacement des lignes de la couche intermédiaire ( interface )) = 0,6 mm.

              Raft Surface Spacing = 0,4 to get a homogenous surface layer to build the part above.

  NB: A Raft consists in tree types of layers : Base ( must adhere to the plateform ), Middle ( interface ) , Surface.

          Each type has 3 parameters : Height, Width ( épaisseur )of the ligne ( support in contact with the preceding layer ),

           Space ( espacement ) between lignes.

          Raft parameters can change with the material, the base of the part , the nature and texture of the upper face

          of the plateform.

  The Raft peels off from ( se décolle de ) the plateform. 

  Be patient and delicate to remove supports.

2. A Rose

   Made with the Mendel 90 Printer ( Prusa i3 ) in red ABS Dimensions : 45 X 46 X 43 mm

   Use of Cura 15.04.6

   Difficulty : thinness petals

   Here is the part view printed so :

                                 

   Parameters : layer height = 0,2 mm

                               Shell thickness = 0,8mm

                              Top and bottom thickness = 1,2mm

                               Infill Density = 50 %

                              Infill type = Grid

                              Printing and travel Speed = 40 mm/s

                              Extrusion t° = 235°C

                              Plateform t° = 99°C

                              Support on the plateform : Angle = 30°; Support Density ( Taux de remplissage ) = 25 %;

                                                                                     Horiz. Displacement ( Eloign. horiz ) = 0,5 mm.

                             Use of Raft

                             Here are the values for Raft and Repair Option :

                           

    B Stalk ( Tige )

       Dimensions : Base : 23,6 X 23,6 mm is adapted to the base of the rose.

                                   Height 53,2 mm.

       Printed with stalk above.

      The same paramerters as the rose.

      Here a view :

                          

3.Twisted Gage

   Difficulty : the branches are inclined according to XYZ of +/- 30°

                         No infill in the branches.

   Realized with Cura 15.04.6

    Dimentions : WDH = 75,6 X 75,6 X 69,3 mm

              

     Parameters : layer height = 0,2 mm

                                Shell thickness = 2,4mm

                                Top and bottom thickness = 2,4mm

                                 Infill Density = 50 %

                                Infill type : Grid

                                Printing and= 40 mm/s

                                Travel Speed = 75 mm/s     

                                Extrusion t° = 235°C

                                Plateform t° = 99°C

                 Here are the values for Supports :

          

              Brim : 5

              Raft : the same as for the Rose

             and Repair Option : A
