Shield Guardian
DMGuy @bigtony8120 I print @205°, plate @65°. Maybe I am too high, as you say, but the first layer always seems good to me. I read online that a lot of issues of the anycubic i3 mega are due to the faulty SD card they provide, so I bought a new one today...we'll see...
DMGuy @mz4250 First of all thank you for your amazing work. I am fairly new to 3d printing, and I need to print this monster (and in the end I will probably print them all, Tiamat is amazing!). I use cura 3.2.1, and an Anycubic i3 Mega. I use these settings Quality: HIGH; Infill: 100% (I read in some of the descriptions of your other models that you suggest to use this setting); Print speed: 30mm/s (it seems fairly slow to me); Temp.: 190° C (standard PLA temp as reported on i3 Mega user's manual); Plate temp.: 65° C; Build Plate Adhesion: Brim 8mm (it should be enough!); Support: Everywhere, Triangle (I didn't changed anything in those setting). I didn't changed retraction or anything else, but I found only a blob of PLA attached to the hotend when I went to check how the work was going on. The plate should be regulated well enough, I printed 3d dungeon tiles this morning, and it was fine. I didn't "lay flat" because the madel actually has a flat base. Could you please share your print settings?
