DO NOT BUY.
I am printing on a Prusa i3 Mks+ printer and have had 0 issues with any prints for the past 6 months of printing, so the only factor I am seeing is this file is not good. I tried the sellers settings in PrusaSlicer but the file was too complex to process and crashed the system. I moved it over to Cura and tried to replicate the settings the best I could and finally got it to slice. After 2 days of printing and almost a full roll of filament, I had a brittle hunk of plastic that I could not pull apart, and when I did start to get it pried apart, it immediately broke. Its a cool idea, but far too expensive and shoddy to keep wasting time and money on.
I'm currently trying the test print, any advice on filament type, retraction settings and the like?shmmee 2023-01-16 17:17:34 UTC
Update: I've successfully printed a sleeve piece in abs on my prusa. I'd estimate a 5% breakage rate on rings while separating - mostly occuring at the ends whenever direction folded and changed. I might need a little less extrusion to weaken the ring bonds.
Breaking up the model was like flexing some very angry pre-cooked Ramen noodles. My hands were raw by the end of it (printed in ABS) but it was oh so satisfying!
The sleeve piece was a bit to small for my arm (I'm a medium build '6 male). I could get the sleeve over my arm but if I bent my elbow, the printed sleeve would bond, constrict and wouldn't let me bend my elbow more than 90 degrees. The completed shirt might be sized for a small adult instead of a medium, or maybe I just need to weave in some more rings at the elbows to restrict movement less. The base print would be super easy to expand, by simply adding a few rows of pre printed test pieces to expand the current pieces.
Regardless, this is still one of the coolest things I've ever printed in my near decade of experience!
Does not fit on an ender s1 stock. Needs a print bed at least 225mm by 250mm. Wish I could leave neutral feedback. Hopefully I can get a refund or a workable solution.
This is the BEST chainmail that ive ever printer off. This is worth it. So easy to print and clean up.
