RafalFett's Boba Fett 3D Projects

Greetings all.

I'm like day four into this 3d print of Rafa's helmet.

I added some fill to the very bottom of the helmet for support.... can't print in the air yet. :)

What I've noticed is that the dome is full of support/fill. Anyone have the same issue?

Last observation, the stl files seems to have definitive vertical lines around the circumference of the helmet. Sort of like an octagon if you will...

Any one else have some of these observations. I'll run down and grab a snap of the current process.

I haven't printed the helmet, but It looks to me like your printer settings are set to do 100% infill.
As for the vertical lines I can't help you there. I didn't see that when I printed the jet pack. Not likely Raff's' model. His stuff if spot on.

Hi guys,

I've asked a buddy with a 25 x 25 inch 3D printer to print the Jet pack for me but he seems to have problems slicing it correctly. Also he chose infill and I would think that's wrong, too. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

I used Slicer when I printed my jet pack. It did a good job with no artifacts. I also used 20% infill. It adds strength to the print. Highly recommended.

Other than the one artifact behind the hole for the beacon it looks really good!

FYI sometimes changing how the part is positioned on the bed will cause the slicer to process it differently and cause or eliminate artifacts. It can be as simple as rotating it 90 degrees.

Thanks, good tipp using Slic3r. Tried it and works pretty intuitively. I'll post my results soon :)
