Printing profiles for 3D printers
Download our print profiles in one click
Why are print profiles important?
In 3D printing there are several factors that depend on the user, and among them are the print profiles it uses. This is usually done using Ultimaker CURA Slicer or Simplify3D software that allows the user to modify different parameters (temperature, speed, shapes, etc).
Therefore, before you start and press the print button, you must make sure that your STL files and print profiles are correct, and to your liking.
What to consider in a print profile
When we talk about 3D printing, we also talk about materials, printer types, flows, temperature and speed, as well as many other definitions. This is because the way 3D objects are created is based on near-perfect constructions and on the geometry.
Among the factors to be taken into account, we find:
- The part or object: we must take into account the plan and geometry of the part we want to print.
- The material with which we are going to work, since, for example, with our TPU filaments will be very easy and with quality results.
- Keep an eye on temperature, humidity and possible currents to avoid clogging or damage.
- The size of our nozzle or mouthpiece is also important when choosing speed.
Tips for printing our flexible TPU filament
If we are going to print flexible filament such as TPU or PLA, we advise you to control everything to the millimeter, since the alignment in this type of material is very important. A millimeter could cause it to curve or unbalance. You should know that a flexible material does not mold in the same way as a harder one, think about it from the print profile design.
We also advise you not to rush. Rushing is never good. We don't want you to print like a turtle, but take your time and watch every process to achieve perfection. And most importantly, learn how to create wonderful pieces.
Finally, keep in mind the temperature of each material. In our case, TPU: 250º/ 10º and for the hot bed 50ºC / 10º. And don't forget to recycle.
