Gear Block Print

My longest print thus far: 22:31:37

Black PLA - 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" x 5 3/4"


Printed at Standard resolution without a raft.

It seems like a great test print from the challenge perspective. I used the default Open GB profile for Simplify3D with the exception of disabling bed heat and changing the default print speed to 3000 mm/minute.

Short of using support material, is there any way to print something like this without the bottoms of the teeth spooling away into loose filament like this? Seems hard to imagine given you are printing in mid-air, but then on the other hand, most of the tooth printed properly which is pretty amazing...

Wonder why it skipped a layer?

It would be more satisfying if I had printed one that actually rotated the gears, but from a printer test standpoint this still seems like a good challenge type file.

The black is so black its hard to see inside the cube, but the spigot looks pretty cool in there, and again, its so amazing that it printed this cleanly.
