The Ultimaker forums are a great place to find cool prints and sometimes we come across a fantastic print made with one of our materials. This week we found Frederiek Pascal’s print of “The Visitor” printed with copperFill on an Ultimaker Extended 2+ and post processed. Post-processing happened manually with steelwool and copper cleaner, which resulted in a perfect result!
The settings used were:
Nozzle diameter: 0.40 mm
Layer resolution: 201-250 micron
Print time: 8-12 hours
Temperature: 205˚ C
Speed: 40 mm/s
Shell thickness: 1.6 mm
Height: 250 mm
B/T thickness: 1.2 mm
Fill density: 20 %
