I love delta wings and just had to buy this plane. Having problems printing “the bend” – wing4.
The top part does not want to print a solid skin. Same problem with S3D and Cura. For S3D I used the provided factory files and only changed the retract setting (I use a bowden tube). Any ideas how to print a solid skin?
Hey, Carl – Yes, that looks like a familiar problem that can happen when the angle of the print exceeds the layer height. Something we missed on making the typical factory files for the Prusa type printers. The solution is to simply reduce the layer height on this particular part, say to 0.10 instead of the factory file setting of .025. This makes the layer thinner of course and allows one layer to build on top of the other – longer print time of course but it is a small part. Good luck and let us know how it works out for you.
PS, if you are up on S3D, then you can change up the layer height setting midway through the print – say it begins to print at a 0.25 and 10mm up it changes to 0.10. S3D has some powerful tools for doing stuff like this.
Hello, I had the same problem when I printed these parts the first time. I did not read this at the time, but found another solution. I simply placed the part on the other flat surface and kept the 0.25 mm layer height. The other way around it printed just fine.

So cool to see people printing out the files. That’ the neat thing about creating code, people all over the world have the ability to “create” the exact same thing as the original. Thanks for the pictures.
