Here it is; ever since I’ve assembled my Turnigy Fabricator I have printed quite a few Marvins. I was mostly giving those away so I was choosing the settings that took the least amount of time, but now it was time to make one as a test order.
So here it is: I’ve managed to print one in 20 micron layer-height settings in Cura, but it did not seem to make a difference when i printed one in 60 micron (so I don’t really believe it actually prints in such accuracy).
Since my filament was translucent, simply increasing the infill changed the way the Marvin looks. Lines on Marvins on the right hand side are simply the infill patterns visible. (it does look pretty cool though)
The one on the left had the “Bottom/top layer height” set to 0.6 mm, hence the “cap” . setting it to 0.3 mm solved it
Nevertheless I’ve chosen these to be my ideal Marvin settings:
- Layer height: 0.06
- 10-20% Infill
- Printing speed: 70mm/s
- Top/Bottom layer height :0.2/0.3
- Printing temperature: 200 C
Lastly, it’s important to note that you have to use Cura 14.2, otherwise it’s difficult to precisely predict what the printer will do, because of the bug in the software. And I was using Esun filament, which quality I cannot guarantee, although I have no complaints so far.
Next up: printing a good Marvin as fast as possible - stay tuned.
If you guys have anything that you’ve encountered with this printer or want to share please do so, I am very curious what this printer can do!
