I have been seeing a lot of people struggle and asking for help when printing the Marvin with their Da Vinci 1.0’s. On the Da Vinci Talk channel we’ve been getting some input on how to print a great Marvin so I thought I’ll summarize it.
But lately I’ve been doing it so often that I thought it’d be great to summarize it in a separate post.
@trueinnovations Made some great rules of Thumb:
- Clean the glass very well.
- Manually calibrate.
- Use the glue stick.
- Import 4 Marvins in four different corners so that the plastic can cool down @Jozef had an idea of putting a hollow cube next to the Marvin for this purpose as well.
Use these settings:
- Normal Shells
- 30% Density
- Standard speed
- 0.2 Layer height
- Raft (optional)
@Jozef also mentioned that DaVinci has the potential to be equal to the much more expensive printers but you may have to stick to the custom firmware. Slic3er + Reptier host can be the tools that could turn everything around. with your print.
Here’s his print which is indeed quite an accomplishment!
@Andreas_15 If any other Da Vinci owners have anything to add that’d be a great source of help!
