Thanks Dave.

Being fairly new into the 3D environment I got a Flashforge Finder and it is serving me fine. The small build volume 140x140x140 is a bit of a problem, along with no heated bed. Now that I have some limited  knowledge of 3D printing I have been looking at the Prusa and the CR10. I like the specs of the Prusa but the CR10 is a lot cheaper. Decisions, Decisions,

Well, its not exactly going swimmingly but Im getting there....

Every time I try to print all the cylinder parts at once, they fail :( Im now printing individual cylider sets and they have worked so far :)
Ive also now run out of black fillament so Im printing in grey, this is what I have so far with another cylinder set printing as I type :)




I also took some video of the last cylinder set printing, its 2 hours long so I will bung it through the editing software to speed it up a touch ;D

Had a bit of time to spend on this today so I now have all cylinders complete and the exhaust bits shown in the pic. The hub is printing as I type :)

As promissed, here is a quick vid of one of the cylinders printing....with minimal editing skill ;D

Due to the very thin wall thickness on the hub its suffering quite badly from shrinkage during printing.
As I'm not familiar with what this is going on; would it be OK to increase the wall thickness a bit?
If yes, please let me know how much would be acceptable, its currently only 1mm, I would like to at least double that ideally.

Hi Dave, weight is not critical as this is going on the front of an Autogyro which actually always seem to need more front weight. As long as the extra is on the inside I donít see an issue. It could even be 3mm if thatís easier.
