I would like some feedback on what i can improve in my settings. Overall the sizes are good. Allthough (except the height) everything is 0.15mm to small.

The borders around the windows look a little ugly and i suspect there is a little over-extrusion (please let me know if i'm right)

The thin spot in the cabin is because my filament got stuck, so there was not enough plastic coming out of the nozzle. (Fixed that)

Benchy is printed on a Tronxy X5S at 0.1mm height with PLA at 200 degrees C. Bed at 60.

Hi, I printed my Benchy on a Tevo Tornado with a .4mm nozzle, 1.75mm PLA filament, .2mm layer height, 10% infill, at 50mm/s maximum speed.

Overall I think it looks ok, but I need help to troubleshoot a few things... like the curve of the prow, the corners of the cabin walls and the sides of the cabin doors are not completely straight, there's some small shifting back and forth. The name plate didn't print legibly and there were some filament hanging from the interior ceiling of the cabin.

I'm completely new at this, and have been trying to learn how to debug these things... but there's a big learning curve to 3D printing. Any help is really appreciated. Thanks!

Please help! I am thinking it's too hot and too fast. Any suggestions? It looks great on the bottom, but that's about it. Thanks for the help!

This is the first print of my newly built 3d printer. Can somebody tell me what is the problem and how to fix it. I think it's the Z axis lead screws because they spin eccentrical. I used 0.15mm layer height and 0.3mm nozzle.

Hi, I'm trying to print in ABS but i keep running in the same problems and I am wondering if anyone has encountered the same issues and could give me some tips.

So as I mentioned I'm printing in ABS (1.75mm) with temperatures of 266 degrees Celsius for the first 5 layers and 250 degrees Celsius after that, layer height is 0,15mm . The bed I'm trying to heat up to 90 degrees Celsius but the bed is so big that it'll never reach it (without closing the printer) , Printer is a Leapfrog creater. Speeds are at 50 mm/s, first layer is at 80% height and I do not have a cooling fan. The software I use is Simplify3D.

Sow the problems I've been running into is that the sides of the deck on the back and a bit on the front are warping up during the printing. Also what i encounter is that the print doesn't stick to the bed that well. I've tried all the things i could find about printing ABS like, mixing acetone with it and use it as a glue, also normal glue, tape, hairspray and buildtak.

Maybe nice to mention is that the printer is a project for my internship. They want me to upgrade everything that is to upgrade, so if anyone has some ideas about that please don't hesitate to comment. Especially your thoughts about to Bowden or not to Bowden.
The improvements I have come up with anthill now will be replacing the gear belts with either a ball screw or a linear motion system, adding cooling fans, replacing the blocks in the Y motion with CNC machined one piece solid blocks, same thing for the hotend - extruder carriage and closing the printer with PMMA panels.

Just dug out the Anet A8 after a year and moving to a new place, installed a E3D V6 clone with Bowden setup (no cooling fan), first print with new PETG. Looks like I've got some tuning to do...

This is not my first 3D benchy, but it is the worst. belt tension issue?

So overall this print turned out pretty okay, but there seem to be a few issues on the sides toward the stern. My theory is that I need to adjust jerk / accel and or tighten belts.

I see a few things wrong but I do not know what I need to do to correct my issues. I was told it was a speed problem.
