    This is a cool illuminati mask. I tried printing it without support. As you can see the result was not good. Lots of holes.

    Here a few prints that came out pretty good.
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    The thumb is used in magic. Painted with water paint and sprayed with lacquer clear.

    [​IMG]
    The illuminati mask was printed with support. Lots to take off. It looks messy. It's die to the model. If it was created properly with sealed edges it would have printed better. Might try and modify it later.
    [​IMG]
    The bottle worked out really well. Solid except for a certain area where the walls are really thin.
    [​IMG]
    I tried using more parameters. Not sure if that had anything to do with it.

    I printed a magnet box.
    One on the bed and one bigger one with a 2 layer raft. I was able to successfully pull the raft off after leaving it on a 55 degree bed. It peeled off nicely.

    Comparing the two, the raft one is a cleaner choice.

    Found a cool looking guitar body.PLA like usual.
    This time I used a RAFT. It makes for a better print. No more ugly looking bottom of the print.

    After printing, I heat the bed up to 100, l use a spatula, working my way around the print till it comes off. At that point the raft is hot and easily peels off the model.

    Slic3r the stable version
    The secret is to heat the bed close to 100 and then try and peel it off.
    I used 2 layers of raft.

    Not sure how it happened but I guess I made a typo and I've been running MC using 0.246 layer height instead if my usual 0,2046

    I wonder if that makes a difference?

    Slicer's latest experimental version has some cool new stuff in it, you should check it out and all the release notes between your version and the experimental.

    Actually there's a new stable version of Slic3r (1.1.5) :) I'm assuming this is what you're using @Peter Krska.

    Galaxius, I updated Matter Comtrol, and it automatically updated Slic3r.

    The newer version of Matter Control has a nice raft. Better than before. It has a nice pattern and come off without a problem. I also noticed that it came off the bed a lot easier too.

    Here's a print I just made and the raft:


    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Here is a problem that I had recently, going good prints tory bad:

    [​IMG]
    It ended up being the y axis motor was loose and the bed gear bed loose. Had to tighten the set screws again and I couldn't tighten the motor underneath the bed to the body of the printer anymore. The screws were tight but the motor moved causing the terrible print.

    I crazy glued the motor to the body and now here is the same print:

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I am going to use a hot glue on the set screws one day to keep them in place. I figure to release them in the future I could hear the area with a heat gun and they should release.

    Printed a hinged box as
    one object. The hinges work right away. It's walls are very thin. If anyone knows a way of printing it with thicker walls without having to edit the object, perhaps through the Matter Control software settings?

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Find it in thingiverse

    You should try editing the number of vertical and horizontal shells, take a look at the slice results to be sure the hinge isnt messed up

    For all your Airsoft needs, thingiverse has so many great projects to print.

    Here's a hand grenade. I think it's a Russia model. Spray painted. Pin is from a fire extinguisher!

    Takes around 6 hours to print the body. The rest of the parts printed within 1 hour. PLA @ 190. Matter Control.

    The body has a hole for your bb's and the pin pulls out and the latch separates.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
