3D printing fail number 10

Oops.

Too skinny – about 30mm wide in the base, 65mm tall.  shakes too much during the build.

I think it was too small and detailed, it shook too much during printing. Perhaps with smaller models the speed needs to be less quick?

It could also be that it’s not sticking to the base plate properly – this happened with the next print:

I found that you can change the generated gcode to turn the base temperature down.  I changed it to 40C, because it waits to build until the temp is within 3C of the target temperature, and it took ages to cool down to 40C even in a cool office.  the results are better, but there’s still maybe 1mm of warp under that back left side.

The upside is that I’ve got a nice gallery of failures after running all these tests!
