Imrahil's build aka Pink Panther

Postby imrahil » Thu Jan 16, 2014 6:52 pm

Hi all!
Greatings from Poland! My name is Jarek and I have MendelMax 1.5 already.

I just started printing parts for my GUS! He will be in violet/pink and gray (or all in pink - not sure)

First shoulder is ready and it looks beautiful! No cracks, no curling! (thanks to 10mm of brim I suppose)

Almost ready!

You managed to do that without any support material?

AFAIK parts are designed to print without any supports

Did you use a heated bed?

Nope, no heated bed. Just thick masking tape (Tesa 4319 for edge protection) and wide brim

Impressive. I am curious if you can get the motor arms printed without curling. Good luck!

Does the brim remove easily and cleanly? Looks like a single layer but I'm not sure if there's some kind of pattern. All my printers have heated beds now but it's nice to avoid the heat-up/cool-down cycle if possible.

I'm always surprised how easy is to remove brim :) Usually I remove it with my fingers and then use knife to smooth the edges a little bit

yup, that's the hardest parts IMHO... that's why I started from easy to print parts :D
