After trial and errors I’ve finally managed to print some small gadgets with my micro 3d printer. Personalized gadget very useful to use at home.
When I bought the printer I choose to buy two spool (ABS white and blue). But since I started printing I found it very difficult to let the material stick to the surface of the printer. I tried printing with support material, with different temperatures, adding scotch tape at the surface, but nothing worked for me. After searching on the web I found out that without a warm bed it’s very difficult working with ABS and so I decided to buy a PLA spool that I use with externally. I set the temperature at 215 degree and with a tape on the surface.
The first object I printed was a phone holder. I printed with low quality and from a design I downloaded from the web. As soon as I realized the printer worked well I started with a personal design.
This is a desk holder I printed in medium quality. It seems to work well even if it’s not so strong. I’ve adjusted the printing setting to high quality and high density. With these settings the printer use more filament, the object weights more but is more strong.
For example this is the door hanger I printed in high quality and density. It took 7/8 hours to complete but it’s really good, strong and resistant.
So. I’m having fun with material, temperature, design of small objects. The next step will be trying with a different design. It’s really early but my mind is already thinking about Christmas 😀
