Here's how to get a great Dactyl print.
Do some test prints with different plastics to see which one works best for you.
PLA is easiest to print.
Plastics with patterns in it works best - eg. Prusament Galaxy or Fillamentum Extrafill.
From personal experience, 0.15mm is a good layer height. Going lower than that doesn't show an increase in visual quality and adds a long time to the print.
Dactyl prints are long, very long. It would be bad that the print warps.
- Add a brim, of 5 or 6 mm
- Use glue - paper glue or wood glue dilluted with water works well
- Disable the parts fan for the first layer
- Make sure your bed is leveled correctly
Here's what I found works best for me in prusaslicer:
- 75% XY separation
- 0.1-0.25mm Z distance
- 2-3mm rectilinear pattern
- 0.2mm interface spacing
- 3-4 layer interface
- 100% fan speed (except for 1st layer)
With this I just grab and twist and support comes off by itself. You can also push from the top (switch holes).
You should do some test prints to make sure that the supports go off well before committing to a full print.
