With the installment of couplers and nozzles the quality of the output greatly improved. Since recycled plastics from household waste are used we are excited about the first results!
Temperature: 195 – 205 °C
Printspeed: 11 mm/s
Printlayer: 4 mm
Nozzle Diameter: 5 mm
In these tests the layer height is reduced to 3 – 4 mm, spreading out the material and building it up in thinner layers. During printing various settings are modified. Especially the increase in print speed and reduced temperature after the 5th layer changed the quality of the output. Video can be found here.
Temperature: 165 –…[Read more]
