  • Air Spinner & Little Brother

    As a trial, I printed an air spinner @ 100% and 50%. They came out OK, especially in the sense they both work. I had to coax the little one a bit to free it up so it would spin, but the full size one worked right off the bed.
    .
    Looking closely, you should be able to see that there is some layer-to-layer fill issues. I have to check the Cura settings, to see if I even have wall-to-wall infill enabled. That said, the full-size version spins very easily and freely.
    .
    These prints were also about testing bed adhesion. I've had mostly good, but some not so good experience with bare glass as a bed.
    .
    So, the small version of the spinner was printed on blue painters' tape. I've noticed that, when I print on painters' tape, the initial layer or 2 are quite transparent. I suspect this is because I'm not accounting for the thickness of the tape itself. I've been meaning to look into Z Offset as a possible remedy for tape thickness, but haven't had time.
    .
    The print is not as crisp & sharp as the full size version, which was printed on UHU Glue Stick. It was my 1st time using UHU and, I have to say, I am really impressed. Neither version would adhere properly on bare glass, but both adhered quite well on the tape and the glue. In fact, I had quite a time getting the full version off of the UHU.

    Nice! Isn't UHU glue transparent?

    Do you have a link to the STL file?

    Cheers

      UHU is mostly transparent: it's kind of milky. The air spinner is at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4307989.

          I downloaded the file too. When I solve my mysterious jamming problem I will give it a try.
