Weekend Hobby Update

Over the weekend I fired up the 3-D printer and printed off some battlement sections from the Winterdale castle. The intention here is for a friend to make some multi bases for his new KoW army. The piece I printed was the biggest piece I've done to date. The footprint is 180mm by 80mm which means it takes about 5 hours to print.

Other than that I was very quiet on the hobby front. I've got plenty ready to go but it is pushing the "Start" button. I'm hoping with finishing up in my current role this Friday that I should be able to get in 2-3 hours per day.


  1. What print speed did you use to print a piece like that off in five hours? I'm still trying to work out the best settings for my printer, and may possibly be doing stuff too slowly to make some prints practical. Thanks.

    1. I use the default in the Cura programme

      It says 5.0mm^3 per second
