Slice Settings

Depending on your 3D printers hardware, you'll need to use your prefered slice settings. The parts are oriented to print "as-is" and doesn't require any support materials (very minimal overhangs).

These are the slice settings we used on our Printrbot Play, sliced using Simplify3D

  • 220C Extruder (on a non-heated bed)
  • 20% Infill
  • 2 shells/parameters 
  • 4 top and bottom layers
  • 1.0 Extrusion multiplier 
  • 0.48 Extrusion width
