Had to reprint this 13 times. i finally got it, it was a function of slowing down to 30mm/s (i usually print at 50mm/s) and a lot of sacrificing…,
I know it’s a year later, and people have obviously been successful. However, my roof has failed 9 times. It’s always on the same part. I’ve turned the roof about 15 degrees 3 times, moved it on the bed, it always fails on the same part every time. I’ve slowed it down, i’ve cooled it off, nothing works. I’m using a Raise3D N2 and slicing with Simpify3d. I’m using 3d FUel PLA at 205 and have done tons of prints successfully, including level 1 and 2 of the tree plus a 100 hour Mage Tower from the Titan Forge Patreon this month.
I’ve even added a 30x30x60 tower off to the corner to force the head to move off the print so that it cools the part. I’ve attached a screenshot of the section that always fails. It does seem to fail around the same spot usually, about the 5.5mm mark
Edit after a while – i tried 4 more prints, adding a raft, changing the initial layer height for more “squish” and even the layer width from 0.4 to 0.6 to see if that helps. if anything its worse now, failing before the first 5 layers.
Has anyone done anything other than just drop this on the plate and print to be successful?
Ok, once i figured out the 6 “bars” on the outside of the floor and wall are your built-in support and they get removed, the clips fit. Now I need to reprint everything I broke. and i broke a LOT 🙁
For newbs like me, is there a step-by-step “this is how we do it” for the most recent versions? It would have been fantastic to see
Step 1 – use a needle nose plier to pull out “these supports” with a picture
Step 2 – Slide the clips in, you dont need more force than it would take to crush coal into a diamond
Step 3 – keep doing it til you’re done
New to these files, and looking forward to getting and printing more. Having a devil of a time with clips snapping and not working even with all the recommended setting.
Curious if everyone is printing floors horizontal (flat on bed) or vertical. I found flat on the bed the tops (stone side) are indistinguishable. However standing them up they look fantastic, like walls.
I’m using a Raise3D N2 with a 0.4mm nozzle, 0.2mm layer height, 4 top and bottom layters, 3 shells/perimeters, 15% grid infill. Just need to figure out how to get clips in without snapping them or the tiles.
