Problems printing the Phoenix hand

Postby nrhunter » Mon Aug 06, 2018 3:05 pm

Hi there, I'm looking for some help. I'm having problems printing the fingers of the phoenix hand on my CEL ROBOX printer. First of all it had meshing issues which I was able to rectify with Netfabb. Now when it prints it seems to print the layers so badly that they flop about and the finger tips just become a mangle mess of plastic. Some of the other parts have printed fine like the jig, gauntlet, tension bar housing and pins. But the fingers fail every time.

I've tried a different head on the printer and it's still the same. I've also downloaded and printed 3d Benchy from thingiverse and that was fine, so it looks like there's either an issue with the model or Automaker has an issue with it.

See of you can post the file with the fingers. I had not issue with the 130% version I printed last month but I was using a different printer and slicer.
If you can post your file I will try and print it for you to see if it is the file or something else. .. What filament are you using?

Hi Airscapes,

Thanks for your reply. I’m using a robox white pla to produce this, I sized mind at 120%....not sure if that makes a difference.

I’m just on my phone at the moment, but I’ll upload the stl file later

Turns out my printer was defective. New printer solved my issues.
