For printing on a Makerbot Replicator 1 with Sain Smart PLA, single 0.4 mm MK8 nozzle, 210°C, build plate at 45°C.
Layer height = 0.2 mm, base print speed = 120 mm/second, travel speed = 200 mm/second (acceleration is ON). I generally don’t use rafts.
For other printers, different settings may be appropriate.
- Position: The cross must be upside down. It must be rotated to fit on the Replicator build plate.
- Size: The long dimension of the part should be 222 mm.
- Support: OFF, some support is part of the model (inside the “star”) and that should be removed after printing.
- Infill: 15% (Makerware honeycomb)
- Shells: 2
- Time: 2.3 hours
