philip_kelly494 @phaeren12 Most of my settings are in my first comment, I believe I printed using support type "Everywhere" and I either used a Brim adhesion type or None, can't remember... I also only used 75% of the maximum scale and printed him standing upright. I did the body by itself and then the heads by themselves and then all of his arms together. For my bed I used some 3M painter's tape which I scraped using the yellow scraper my printer came with to flatten it and then a layer of purple Elmer's school glue. The rest of the information is in my previous post, good luck!
philip_kelly494 @NineteenLettersOnly I typically use .0875 for small figures and have had excellent results. I've used .013125 rarely but in my opinion the print time difference between .08 and .13 are insignificant. I think that the actual layer heights that are optimal for the MP Select Mini based on the stepper motor are close enough to these values that it doesn't matter too much. There is only .000508mm difference (or 0.114%) between .01748 and .0175 and I'm sure that this printer can't be that precise.
philip_kelly494 This printed pretty well and it was the first thing I've ever attempted to paint. MP Select Mini 3d Printer V1, I used .175mm layer height, 100% infill, 35mm/s print speed, PLA at 200c, bed at 50c. I also had to print him at 75% of the original size due to the small print area. Printing these minis is the primary reason that I got a printer in the first place! Thanks for the designs Miguel!
