MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
I am new to the world of 3D printing, I have only had a printer for 1 month. this is my fist multi part print but i have a lifetime of engineering experience which helps.
I have just finished printing your very nice dragon, as you have mentioned in your "read me" file the ball and socket joints are a bit loose.
however I have overcome this problem by cutting some pollythane sheet discs and inserting them on assemly between the ball and socket. This takes up the gap and gives a little friction to the model. I have used this method on all the large ball joints it makes the dragon poseable and can support itself once positioned.
material used:- ICE PLA WONDEROUS WHITE
nozzel temp:- 205c
bed temp:- 60c
method for printing:- BUILT ON A RAFT WITH GENERATED SUPPORT TOUCHING BASE PLATE using all your presupported modles, this method gave me zero fails
I have printed two dragons at the same time so the print time was quite long but well worth the effort. I will update the post once I have fully completed the assembly with pictures and comments
hope this helps those that are having problems.
