The 3D printer has finished printing the latest version of one of one of the most difficult parts of the Eagle model. The 3D model suffers from all the problems I mentioned in the other post, plus some more.

The good news: I spotted only a few minor things where the Cura misinterpreted the improved mesh. It's far from perfect, but I may get around redesigning it from scratch.

The bad news: Lowering the printing temperature did not help. The 'cobwebs' are now turning into 'hairs'. That's a similar effect, but a bit messier and even harder to get rid of. I must raise the temperature again and then find another way to get a cleaner print. Maybe it's just that brand of filament.

Here are some pictures, taken outside to reveal eaven tiny flaws: Space 1999 Eagle model - Album on Imgur[^]

I should order a lot of sandpaper and some new skin for my hands along with more filament.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
