3d printing of Ralf David Eprom Burner Case pt 2

XF551s

I believe I nearly have the finished .stl files.  I’m doing a final fit print now and into tomorrow morning.  There will be two files, two parts,  a bottom and a lid.  It may not be the best solution, but I dare say a better one than in the buff as it is now.  🙂

My printer is behaving, but the Hatchbox filament is taking a little while to dial in.  It wants to ooze a little more than the XYZ filament.  So I backed down the temperate from 220C to 218C.  I’m printing the lid now, so we’ll see how well it does.   Also setup a skirt/brim to hopefully eliminate the wad of filament that wants to collect at the nozzle.

Print time is rather long for the bottom, a little over 4hrs, but I’m printing at medium speed/quality.  The lid is supposed to take about 2hrs.   I’ll do the bottom tomorrow morning.  I don’t want to let the printer run over night.  Too many times it’s run amok and after only 5 minutes of inattention I’ve found a ball of filament dancing with the extruder on the build plate.
