I had to slow my print speed down, but I was able to print these after using 30 mm/s print speed.

In instructions you say to print without support. But then top layer is hanging on nothing. Am I missing something?
Are you building it on the side? But then your words about changing color at 13mm makes no sense.

Sorry to hear you don't understand the instructions fully. These print standing up.... not on its side. The top (roof) will bridge over. Your macine abd slicin app will deal with this provided it is set to allow bridging. This should be on as standard.

The color change is at 13mm with a 1mm thick raft. That needs to be varied depending on raft thickness settings but easier done manually by pausing when you see the top logo start forming.

I hope this helps

Oh. Thank you. I am so amateur, I did not know such thing as bridging :) Now I see it is disabled by default in Cura. I'll try experimenting with it. Thank you.

I made one of these valve caps and it turned out perfect,thank you.

thank you save me life

Would it be possible to get this in a .3ds or .obj please? I'm using Sketchup and it doesn't recognize the .stl format.

Message me your email address and I'll see what I can do. ..

PM sent for an IGS file if possible

Is it possible that you make a Volvo Edition?

Thanks for your message... possible if you are okay with the circle /line /arrow head but the text would be too small to print. . Would that be okay?

printed them at 75% infill and 3.9mm^3 per second speed and they came out great. if i do it again ill print them slower though.
