Shop Talk – Near Resin Quality Gears From Your FDM Printer!

In this episode, we will be looking at getting near resin quality out our FDM printers using Cura and a couple key settings. I ran across the concept here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDW7g3JOqLA&t=926s However when you boil it all down, it seems to be (1) treating all layers as “top layers”, (2) printing crazy fine layers like 0.05 and finial (3) slowing everything down (20 mm/s). Yet was presently surprised by the results, yet be forewarned, your print times will go through the roof.
