I’ve been experimenting with some new filaments lately, including a polycarbonate, and a carbon fiber PETG.
I’m having some challenges trying to get them tweaked in a test print. The test print I’ve been using is the All-in-one NANO 3D printer test *NANO* All In One 3D printer test by steeveeet - Thingiverse
I’m having some different issues on different parts of the print: some appear to me to be extruder temp too low, and other areas it’s melting the filament, so that obviously the temp is too high.
Some of it relates to the layer times on smaller areas of the print, and I’ve attempted to try to change the fan speed to compensate.
When you tune your slicer profile (*'m using Cura 5.3) for a new filament, do you try to tune it for all cases, or do you create a special profile for very small prints?
This is an example of a test print, (polycarbonate), but similar for other filaments.
This is CF PETG. I seem to have a choice between poor layer adhesion and not melting everything.
This is an example of a small print that had problems with melting on the upper layers. I was able to solve this with turning the fan on.
