Unable to print model hi

Post by lchunleo » Thu Aug 31, 2017 11:16 am

Hi all,
New to mini up printer and 3d printing. I have tried to print a simple object, but I realize that only the raft is printed but not the object , why is it so ?

I noticed that in the 3d model in the software, it is floating above the plane and above the raft with space in between. Is this normal ?

I also noticed that sometimes it printed the raft halfway and then end the entire printing , why is it so ?

Thanks

Hi,
Perhaps the model have something wrong, you'd better printing a simple model like a cuboid to make sure it.
Please try it!
Looking forward to your reply.

thanks, i managed to get one successful print by adjusting the model to lay flat on the plate disregarding if the raft is shown below the plate.

However, i still have other issues such as

1) difficulty in separating the raft from the printed object

2) How to interpret the dimension metric in the UP software for the plate (which show the ruler but not the metrics)

Pls comment if you have some ideas on this matter. thank you
