Default Re: 3D printing failures

Not exactly failures, but I don't want to start a new topic.

When the printer I have is instructed to print "supporting material", it prints this odd lattice-like structure under the parts of the model that overhang.





This is at a higher magnification, 100X rather than 40X.


This 3d printer doesn't do very well unless I print a "raft" - basically a flat surface just slightly larger than the object. This is a defect of the software that comes with it, I shouldn't need to print a raft, but it helps iron out some of the printing quirks this printer has while starting up.

This is a small piece of the top of the raft. This is also at 100X
