Hi there, I try to print the spike trap, but the points are very fragile and breaks on slightest touch. I print FDM, 0.12 layer heigth PLA.THANKS
Thanks, will give it a try.
Hi, Whilst the spiked trap pieces are indeed one of our more delicate designs and require careful handling (there’s no way around very thin spikes of plastic not being fragile), they should not ‘break at the slightest touch’. You could try printing them at .2 as the larger layer height may introduce a little more integrity to the spikes. Also, you could try increasing your infill % (at least 20% is what I’d recommend). Finally, slight underextrusion could cause the kind of issues you’re describing so make sure you don’t have a slight clog. Jeff and I print those traps regularly and don’t have the issue you’re describing so if the above doesn’t work, it’s likely going to be a rogue printer setting/idiosyncrasy at your end which can be tricky to diagnose. Good luck with it, Jay
