Anet A8 beginning layers not printing correctly

I have had an Anet A8 printer for about two months now and still have not gotten it to print good prints.

At first, it would only print completely solid parts and every time I would try infill from 10-90% the first layer would not stick or it would print really filmy like. As of now, it won’t print the first layers for anything well but once it gets up about 10-ish layers it prints perfectly. I have tried a lot of stuff but it seems to be making it worse.

The pictures show my recent attempt at these settings below (Cura’s default for normal quality), the print is supposed to be a 10 mm square. I have gone back to the default settings because nothing else was working.

  • Using blue painter’s tape
  • Layer Height 0.1 mm
  • In. Layer Height 0.3 mm
  • WallThicken 0.8 mm
  • Top/Bottom Thick 0.8 mm
  • Infill Density 20%
  • Grid Pattern
  • Print Temp 210°C
  • Bed Temp 65°C
  • Dia 1.75 mm
  • Flow 100%
  • Brim (raft is a little better)

Any suggestions?

Model keeps printing hollow

Hello!

First off, I’m a huge noob to blender, this is my first few months with a new program.

I’m having trouble printing my model. It’s a fully formed mesh, completely connected. But when I go to print it, it becomes a hollow, spaghetti nightmare. Is there anything I should do to it before printing? Maybe an increased solidify modifier?

It doesn’t matter if I print it bigger or smaller, there are still completely missing faces, and everywhere from the knees to the neck are totally hollow.

Thanks!

Printing high detailed big format PSB, what’s the highest resolution possible?

Hi I would like to print big size photographs in very high detail, like the ones proposed on https://vastphotos.com/
So for example I have s PSB file 250cm wide at 600ppi, which results in almost 60000px. File size is over 5GB.
Is it possible to print at that detail today? Can you suggest a company that prints at that (or even higher) resolution?

Just to clarify, I am creating files by stitching multiple images from camera together, or creating parts of the images in vector graphics, so I can create files at any size and resolution.

Thank you.

change file name when printing to pdf with script

is it possible to change the pdf name when the file is being printed in adobe pdf printer with a script?

Printjoboptions gives options file and name, but with file i just get a corrupt file that has been set with the suffix .pdf and the name option is not related to changing the file name.

i know this can be done with saveas, but is it possible while printing?

this is my current setup

var printJobOptions= new PrintJobOptions();
   var options = new PrintOptions();
   options.jobOptions = printJobOptions;

    printJobOptions.copies=1;
    var PP="PDF print";
    options.printPreset=PP;

    doc.print(options);

Image printing counter

It is possible that each time an image is printed, each new image is listed, as shown below.

What special considerations are there for printing on ‘flag’ signage?

I have been asked to design some advertising to print on tear-drop street signage similar to this:

tear-drop shaped street signage flags

My question is; are there things to keep in mind when designing for this medium as opposed to other more fixed signage? My guess is many of the considerations will be similar for other flag-type signage.

KnitR document is still printing code chunks that have been removed

I have a class paper that I’ve written in LaTeX with knitr code chunks which are mostly just pulling labeled chunks from an R script. I initially included every chunk from the script and then removed them as I wrote and found that I didn’t need them all. However, two of those that I removed are still showing up when I compile the document on Overleaf, both are tables. I’ve linked below to the repository on GitHub for all the code. The script is analysis.R and the document is main.Rtex.

The first code that chunk that is printing after being removed is a table that was modified into a kable and now it prints both the plain text that table() spits out as well as the kable in the same place. This is under the label year_niche_table.

The second is a kable that is under the label age_niche_chisq_expected in the script but is no longer referenced at all in the document, but still prints. Strangely, it’s also superimposed over the table created by the chunk labeled age_niche_table.

I’ve looked many times to see if I reproduced code or labels somewhere or if the scope of a label accidentally covered too much, but I can’t see anything. I’ve also tried compiling this in RStudio (modifying the extension to .Rnw) and gotten the same results. Any clues?
