Slic3r is generally known to perform better bridging methods than Skeinforge. As we'll see in the following recipes, this holds true. We'll see how easy it is to achieve decent results printing a bridge 50 mm across!
First, we'll look at layer height. As we can see in the following example, a lower-print layer will generally give a better result:
For this reason, we'll be printing the following tests in this recipe with a 3 mm layer.
We'll also be experimenting with both ABS and PLA filament. Keep in mind that the filament isn't consistent in grade and the results may vary.
You'll need Slic3r and ABS and PLA filament. ...
