Makergear M2: Pink Panther Woman

To set the background, here’s what the Thing-O-Matic and Skeinforge did to the Pink Panther Woman nearly two years ago:

PPW - outie zits

PPW – outie zits

On the other side:

PPW - Clip gaps

PPW – Clip gaps

The M2 and slic3r produced this, with the conspicuous vertical bars coming from the 0.10 infill:

M2 - Pink Panther Woman - front

M2 – Pink Panther Woman – front

From the rear:

M2 - Pink Panther Woman - rear

M2 – Pink Panther Woman – rear

A detail of the left hip shows that slic3r distributes the reversal zits, rather than lining them up in neat columns, and the M2 does a much better job of not depositing blobs at reversals:

M2 – Pink Panther Woman – hip detail

I picked 1.0 mm retraction at either 100 or 300 mm/s, pretty much out of thin air, but even some fine tuning can’t improve that very much. The zits are recessed, so the retraction may be slightly too enthusiastic.

The slic3r configuration:

; generated by Slic3r 0.9.8 on 2013-03-29 at 19:38:15

; layer_height = 0.25
; perimeters = 1
; top_solid_layers = 3
; bottom_solid_layers = 3
; fill_density = 0.10
; perimeter_speed = 100
; infill_speed = 300
; travel_speed = 500
; scale = 1
; nozzle_diameter = 0.35
; filament_diameter = 1.70
; extrusion_multiplier = 0.9
; perimeters extrusion width = 0.40mm
; infill extrusion width = 0.40mm
; first layer extrusion width = 0.39mm

No source, as it’s direct from the STL on Thingiverse.
