3D Printing - First Prints...

So more fine tuning today, have had some really successful prints and a few that haven’t printed properly.

Unfortunately there is no manual for how to get a successful print, first time, every time.  Well apart from the test rook, that comes with the printer.

There are a few settings that can make a print work or not, a lot of the things I’m printing are under 1mm, most around 0.05mm and some down to 0.03mm so settings come into play getting this to work.

At the end of all this trial period this is what I’m trying to achieve, a GRS - TR-2 Triangular Colour Light, with its mast bracket, at least I have one…!


  1. It looks like the print quality is really good. Doesn't have the layer-by-layer rippled look that a lot of 3D printers seem to produce. Almost ready for paint straight off the printer. Sweet.

  2. The beauty off resin, huge learning curve & frustration dialling in the printer settings.
    Think it was an issue with the slicer software, which I’ve now changed.
    More prints tomorrow…
