Happy Sunday Gunday!!
What filament are you using? Everytime I print something it seems weak and flimsy
Stefan over at CNC Kitchen does strength tests and such all the time. This is not a 1:1 comparison, but it is enlightening. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycGDR752fT0
You're doing it wrong. 100% infill, 60° tilt, tree supports. 0.15 lines 0.8 nozzle
If just using normal PLA or TPU get CHT nozzle from bondtech.
If you're using anything else I suggest diamond or tungsten carbide.
I suggest carbon fiber pla.
These comments tend to get deleted for aome reason.
100% infill? Your prints must take days! And I've never managed to get tree supports working well. Maybe it's my printer. What are you using?
My prints take weeks sometimes.
Usually when they fail it's something stupid I did. Like for example I didn't secure the filament dry box lid and the end of the filament pulled it onto the print bed. I made a special shelf but moved the printer and was to lazy to move the shelf which cost me a few days printing.
Tree supports doesn't work if you're bed moves in X or Y. Mine move Z only.
I have TronXY 600x2 and TronXY 500 pro and Anycubic predator large format delta.
The TronXY 600 seem to be pretty easy to use, build and fix.
The nozzle is probably the most important thing, I love the CHT nozzle from bondtech for running plain PLA.
Carbon fiber seems to be one of the go-to's but I can't wait to try the wood filament.
The Ender printers are good but they will leave you wanting something bigger usually.
I don't recommend a printer that moves the bed any direction besides up and down.
I suggest you get one with rails.
Twotrees sp5 400 to 500$ 300mm cube these can be a pain to tune but have great detail if done by someone who is careful and pays attention to detail.
Tronxy 600 1000 to 1300$ 600mm cube will run carbon fiber pla immediately if you buy a hardened nozzle, steel, stainless, tungsten carbide, or diamond. Only upgrade needed is a MOSFET for the bed really.
I have Swiss Micro head on my CR10. These heads are a direct replacement and about $80 US.
