After almost 16 hours, the case for my knitting clock is starting to take shape. You can now make out the central structure that will hold the knitting machine itself in place. While I tried to reduce overhangs, due to the nature of this model there still are quite a few so there will be a lot of internal support material to remove when this is done.
I had to cancel the print. There were a few flaws in the model that I couldn't ignore and that I wasn't able to see in the model itself. In particular the button mounting brackets were not attached to the sides of the case but just floating 1mm from the case. Rookie mistakes.
It's ok. This will allow me to make a few other refinements that I noticed when printing, but that weren't important enough by themselves to cancel it.
Which printer are you using?
We are looking into buying our first one, as prices are coming down nicely. We want one with a big print area, because we know we will become frustrated by size restrictions as we learn to print more stuff.
@MaryPot I currently use an Ender 5 Pro, and as you can see I'm using up all of the available print area for this print! I've been very pleased with the quality of the prints when combined with the default Ender 5 printer profile in Prusaslicer.
@kyle is one of the things you learn about 3dprinting and what I love about it. Sometimes, you need to print it to see.
