Hi Pete,

are there any specific settings that I should make, before starting the printing (apart from using supports)?



you need very good layer adhesion, so adjust temp and choose material wisely for that. I honestly don't have very good layer adhesion and I'm not using one of these right now. I printed with .15mm layer height and max infill.

Did you have to print this with supports. I'm not having much luck getting the base or the spinner to print. The base has to much free space underneath and the spinner doesn't mesh very well

Yes, definitely use supports, especially for the base. I printed both at the same time so I had to use the same settings (because my software is very basic for Afinia/Up!), however the spinner printed with very minimal support, just for the prop cutouts mainly.
