So here is Benchy printed on my new ANET A8 ($175USD). Great results overall and this is prior to doing a good bed leveling. Only real issue was near the bottom on the rear side.

An object the size of #3DBenchy typically 3D prints at low speeds if standard cooling adaptation is used in the slicing software.

Therefore the temperature for PLA could be anything from 190°C to 230°C. The key factors for a good surface are good part cooling and good mechanical stability.

A #3DBenchy printed with zero shells (perimeters) and zero top and bottom solid layers. Only the 25% infill was printed.

Sliced with #Simplify3D and #3Dprinted on a #MakerBot Replicator 2 #3Dprinter. Print time: 67 minutes.

Is anyone here printing with a 0.4 nozzle and getting the hole/support tube on the back in decent quality? The vertical one on the back of the boat, not the one at the bottom.

If you are, could you please share your line width and wall settings please, i'm having some problems with making it a solid object, its coming out looking like its really under extruded when my extrusion settings are fine.

Ignore the fact the walls are under extruded, this is an old photo before i got the extruder settings sorted.

Thanks,
Sam.

Just out of interest, do you print a thinner first layer or a thicker first layer compared to the rest of your layers?

I have had my 3d printer for a while now and it used to work really good. While ago it stopped working good and started looking kind of crappy. I printed the 3d bench you trying to figure out what's wrong because I've tried everything that I read online and nothing is working. I would greatly appreciated if someone could help me figure out what's wrong with my printer.
Filament: pla
Print speed:60mm/s
Infill:10%
Layer height:0.2 mm
Nozzle temp.:180
Bed temp.:50

It looks like your 3D printer (what model?) has some issues with the mechanics. Probably the X/Y axis are not in tune. For instance having loose timing belts can cause backlash yielding the artifacts you show in the images of your #3DBenchy.

Thanks . Had to use a drop of super glue to complete the print.

Thick layers printing.

Here are some photos of #3DBenchy printed with 0.75mm layers.
#3DBenchy is a perfect design for printing with thick layers.
Does not look like there are any limits.

That's be great, I use S3D as well, thanks!

I've been going nuts trying to figure out why all my 3DBenchy's seem to fail on wall building, right at the tip of the prow. Same spot everytime. Is this a shell or wall width problem? I would greatly appreciate some advice!

Thanks for sharing the photos! :)

At that height the 3D printer's extruder starts making small patches of the layer and constantly retracting and pushing down to extrude again.

Some extruders have trouble doing so and perform better if the filament flow direction does not invert.

Just for testing, try removing all retraction from your slicer and print #3DBenchy again to see if this stops happening.

#2 Failed Benchy. On Monoprice Maker Select Plus.

Both failed in exactly same spot, working the curves to top ceiling. Any one have ideas on what would cause this?

Hello everyone.
I have issues trying to print #3dbenchy with ABS. But, I fail to understand what is happening.
I had no issues at all and very good results with PLA.
I'm now trying to tune my printer for ABS, and this is what I ends up with.

My printer is a I3 chines clone named "Tronxy X3", but with altered parts.
I'm using an original E3dv6 hotend with a 0.4mm nozzle, an heated bed at 85° with a buildTak sheet. (max temp I can reach, I have another bed that can do more, but the mosfet of the board cannot withstand the current draw, so I'm stuck with this bed until I replace the electronics)

The print was made with reprap Austria ABS Deluxe (https://www.3dware.ch/Filament-ABS-Deluxe-Smaragd-Gr%C3%BCn-1.75mm-750g-De.htm) with the 3 first layers at 243°c and the following at 230°c.
I went pretty hot on the base, because I have adhesion issues even with the buildtak if I'm lower than 240°c.

The extruder is a bowden setup, with a 10mm retraction setting.
The layer height is 0.2mm, and the max speed is set to 40mm/s max.
I am using simplify3d for the slicing.

My main issue is that "shrinkage" (looks like it, like some material was sucked from the print) I see on the side, always on the same place.
I wonder if retraction settings could cause this, as this location is the point where the layer ends.

Anyway, I'm welcoming any hints as was is happening...

I had the opportunity to borrow a 3DKreator ‪#‎3Dprinter‬ and the first thing I did was to make a ‪#‎3DBenchy‬, as you can see in these images and video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHTr0yKcIAM

The 3DKreator is not so know today and I was surprised of its sturdy all-metal structure and that it has linear rails for the moving parts.

The machine is basically a RepRap machine and I had no trouble setting up a slice with Cura and Simplify3D.

Here's my print of this sweet little model. I used Hatchbox 1.75 PLA and Cura. I designed a 3/16 plate steel frame with an inductive sensor for Z and cut it on my own designed plasma table. I also am using an aluminium x-carraige I drew up and plasma cut and mig spool welded together. I used 215C extruder and a 55C heated MK4 clone aluminium plate bed on Elmer's Blue Stick. Temps on 100K NTC thermistors. I used Chinese 8x8 leadscrews and their tops are floating (not retained in any way) and Geetek all-metal X ends. Marlin firmware and a Pi 2 running Octopi. Some settings: .1 layer height, 30 mm speed, combing-all, .4 nozzle e3d v4 clone, bowden with 5.5 mm retract... haven't tried 6mm yet. I have next to zero stringing right now. Thanks for looking. :-)

+Paulo Kiefe Thank you! I think the Hatchbox filament is awesome. I've never used it before. I'm tempted to buy more of it, but there's no guarantee that it'll be the same mix...
