About the Project

Inspired by the work @shingen is doing with their volvo in space, I have created a project detailing the printing of the Sleipnir. Its going to be slow going takes quite a while to print.

Overhang problems

I am having problems with overhangs/bridges. Strangely it seems worse on one side than the other as shown above.

I think I might have damaged the nozzle and several cold pulls doesn’t seem to have fixed it. I’ve ordered a new nozzle so I’ll see if that fixes it.

I have downloaded a different profile for the slicer and I cant believe the difference, the overhang on the right is printed with supports on the standard profile, the one on the left is printed with the profile 2nd Dynasty have a link to in their instructions without supports.

I didn’t think the settings in the slicer could make that much of a difference!

This one took quite a while as I needed to sort out the bridging setting on the slicer so the floor was reprinted several times before I got something I was happy with.
