    When printing BigBox parts what should the settings be? (Infill, no of walls, top and bottom layers)

    Thanks.

    What matters is how you want you pri t to turn out doesn't matter what printer it's on. The more walks the stronger the part but the more plastic you use.

    I think Syko was more referring to how the BB parts were originally printed.

    I reckon that on certain parts one might improve on the 3 wall 25% slicing.

    In particular, the parts with the bearing clamps that need to be tightened. Lots of people have seen cracks and breakage in the part that gets tightened for reasons that are obvious when you look at it. I'd try upping the number of perimeters to make the thin, tightened bit solid plastic.

    I agree I had to glue my X ideler back together until I can print a new one, didn't even tighten it that much.
