Re: printer to make stamps

There are several things to consider when printing objects which will contact food - it isn't just filament:

Re: Too poor to buy cheap- getting what you pay for

you definitely get what you pay for. To be honest I'm not in full agreement with that synopsis. Undoubtedly there ARE crap products out there, but I'm loathe to tar them all with the same brush. They are after all trying to make a profit, and if that means they shave some corners then I'm generally...

Re: Newby advice which printer

I agree with iDig3DPrinting, you won't get a lot for 300 bucks. However that's not terribly important if you are dipping your toe in the water. I can vouch for the Creality CR-10S (NOT THE CR-10, without the S). It's heated bed will struggle to get over 90 degrees which means ABS isn't a realistic f...

Re: Thicker layer offset

Cura is a good option and I know it has the config you need. I would try to figure out why it won't work. However I had problems with Cura 15 - so I suggest you try Cura v2:

Re: Thicker layer offset

Looks like you might be over-extruding - you are squishing more filament than is necessary to fill a space, and this leaves blobs on the finishrf print. Print a cube 20mm x 20mm x 20mm at 100% infill. If the cube is bloated you are over-extruding. If it is looking like it needs action from biafra (i...

Re: Thicker layer offset

You might find that infill of 8% would be good for most prints. 15% and above is a bit too highand needed for parts which are subject to weight or stress.

Re: Thicker layer offset

Try bed temp of 70 degrees and nozzle 230 degrees - the latter is probably OTT for PLA so you will probably adjust it downwards after the trial. PLA at 230 might be too runny, you'll probably have stringing. Bed temp of 70 is okay for PLA, though 60 is probably likely. Your current temps are too low.

Re: Thicker layer offset

Sounds a bit odd. Layer shifting COULD be due to print temperature, where if the bottom layer sets cold before the next layer then layer 1+ could "drag" as it prints the higher layers. Might not work but try setting a higher bed temperature, which should reduce the cooling during printing. And raise...
