Ian posted the following in connection with a question about settings for R3 part printing with a R1 or R2 TVRR.
I am reposting here to help populate the R3 guide.
- Number of perimeters - 2
- Number of solid top and bottom layers - 3 and 3
- Layer thickness - 0.3mm
- First layer thickness - 0.3mm
- Infill Density % - 0.3 (30%) should be fine. Use rectilinear fill - it's the fastest printing; the honeycomb fill doesn't support top layers as well.
We don't need to duplicate info that is available elsewhere.... I thought of this as I updated the 'buying solder' page on the Reading Hackspace wiki. Just post a link, of course this does rely on the external site continuing to exist. Maybe there is a way of easily importing a duplicate of such pages?
Editors Note: (MikeTheBee) This is a copy of a post Ian made over on the GoogleGroup. (https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en&fromgroups#!topic/tvreprapug/EOPBcjttilI%5B1-25%5D)
I don't usually post about prints, but this one is a bit different, so thought it might interest the community to show what you can do with 3D printers.
At least three of our 20 first round TVRRUG printers are producing prints!
It’s hard to believe that it has been over a month since our eagerly awaited “Introduction to 3D Printing” weekend at South Hill Park, and we’re still basking in the after-glow of a successful event (if I may say so myself).
Time has flown since the last TVRRUG post announcing the release of issue 3, and we’ve been beavering away to get all the last bits and pieces together to complete the kits. Here are the latest developments.
Opening the bag of bits
I know its been quiet on the blogging front here for a while but that doesn’t mean a lot hasn’t been happening, I’ve had my head down in a number of projects, I need to rebalance my IRC, Twitter, usergroups and everything better!
