Jay here and I thought I'd get things started here in the 3D Printing chat. I hope this will become a helpful resource for everybody and make the journey to beautiful terrain layouts a much more stress-free one!
As you hopefully are all aware, our digital file terrain packs include a 3D Printing Guide which provides some hints and tips for hassle-free printing of TST. However, inevitably there will be issues for some of you because, well - that's 3D printing. It often has us pulling our hair out because try as we might, our prints aren't working out for what could be a huge number of reasons.
As of time of writing, about 75% of our recent digital file Kickstarter backers have downloaded their files and it seems most of you have hit the ground running printing our terrain without issue. However, there have been a handful of people reach out to us with issues and we have been happy to try and help. I just thought it might be timely to remind everyone of the following as these seem to be some common issues/questions that continue to pop up;
- We recommend Cura version 4.8! We can wholeheartedly vouch for this particular version of Cura, it continues to produce excellent results on our workhorse Creality Ender 3s and CR-6 SEs using the generic 'Standard' print profile of a .2mm layer height. There should be no need to play with any of the settings found within this profile apart from perhaps changing the nozzle and/or bed temperature to suit your printer, and maybe opting for a skirt or brim depending on which you like to use.
