My very first 3D print .. ( Ever )


My very first 3D print (2 min 8 sec)


Geeetech A10 / PLA /

( Problems )

Levelling the bed .. Nothing like on youtube , it took about 6 circuits of the adjustments .
Every time I move the printer , it need to be levelled again ( PITA )

The biggest issue was the print letting go of the bed (?)
I dont have glue sticks , but I did try hairspray .

The default settings bite like a rabid dog .
? This is my first time using a 3D printer .

But the print height might be at issue ( default was 0,1mm ) Why ???
I changed it to 0.2mm ..
Bed temperature (?) Default seemed to be 55deg C
The print would make a snapping sound and this was the signal that the print was lose .
I dont remember how many times I started this print ..

Hairspray (?) did not help ..
But the change to 0.2mm print height
And I increased the beds temperature to 70deg C for the print

I wanted to print a spinner assembly for the Volantex Super Cub .
It's very how do you do ( not that good ) .
I will have to design a new one that fits the super cub a lot better .
But then this was my first 3D print and DIY design .
I would rate it barely acceptable .
