This is my first really successful print after doing a bit of tuning.
Very happy with this.
Nice, and I see glue on the build plate so I'm not the only one using it.
Having watched some of your travails via the Google group, it's great to see BB#1 up and running well. It should really have a plaque or something...
I'll have to print one and put on the stickers. I'm such a slacker sometimes.
Does anyone know why the top of the rocket looks like it melted? I know it's a point and the nozzle stays in almost the same place, but is there a way around this?
It would be worth a few tests just to cut it down to the top 3-5cm and experiment with some of the settings. I'm sure when I finally get mine up and running, this would be a good shakedown test after a few gazillion cubes and benchys.
I guess.... really a wild guess, I thing this could be the fans not running fast or there is a setting like "minimum layer time" which is, I think, to prevent issues like this since the plastic has no time to cool ...
Then I saw a Video from the 3dPrinting Nerd he is talking about S3D and printing a rocket and one thing that he says is, "... printing in spiral mode..." where you have no layers or just one.
A other thing is the temp maybe its to high? With S3D it is possible to print the top with different settings (temp) see https://www.simplify3d.com/support/tutorials/different-settings-for-different-regions-of-a-model/
The model comments on Thingiverse actually comment that the tip is a problem and can be put straight with a knife or something if I recall when I printed it. That being said, mine did print straight. There were two versions of this one of which solved it.
Great. I'll take a look at both options and see if they work.
How's this? A little down and dirty, but it works.
