Yet another calibration / clearance test print fidget something... thing. I have no idea how to name it. x'D
Anyway - This thing aims at testing clearances, and measurements of your printer. You likely want to have your flowrates sorted perfectly before slaping this in your printque.
There's a chopped center ball and eight rings, with different clearances. If everything goes superduper well, you should end up with some fidget/air spinner/bearing/toy… ehm some sort of thing... thing.
Regarding benchmarking / testing:
The numbers should be on the Y Axis, so measure along at the widest Point, after twisting the desired ring out by 90 Degrees.
- The model should be exactly 8mm height on the Z axis.
- Center 1 ball should be 10mm outer diameter
- Ring 2 should be 15mm
- Ring 3 should be 20mm
- Ring 4 should be 25mm
- Ring 5 should be 30mm
- Ring 6 should be 35mm
- Ring 7 should be 40mm
- Ring 8 should be 45mm
- Ring 9 should be 50mm
- Center to 2 = 0,05mm
- Ring 2 to 3 = 0,10mm
- Ring 3 to 4 = 0,15mm
- Ring 4 to 5 = 0,20mm
- Ring 5 to 6 = 0,25mm
- Ring 6 to 7 = 0,30mm
- Ring 7 to 8 = 0,35mm
- Ring 8 to 9 = 0,40mm
I havent yet printed it myself since i feel my current PLA brand... sucks. But i will do in a few weeks. Also, i'm still traning in Fusion360, so... yeah that's just another project that i guessed, might be intresting for others.
If you test it out leave me a comment/feedback, please. :)
PS - Regarding WIP flag:
i fear there clearances might be very optimistic, a prototype of this on my 4max ended up as a quite… strong but light hokey puck model. So yeah any feedback would be appreciated.
Curas Default Generic PLA - "normal" Profile states 2hours print time.
Have initial and layerheigts match up to even numbers
Do not use adaptive layers, or ironing (see PS in the description)
try to break the rings and center loose, to know your printers clearance capabilities
play around with the... thing. ;)
