Assignments: (Group) 1. Test the design rules for your 3D printer(s). 2. Document your work and explain what are the limits of your printer(s). (Individual) 3. Design and 3D print an object (small, few cm3, limited by printer time) that could not be made subtractively. 4. 3D scan an object (and optionally print it).Published on: Feb 26, 2020

I downloaded an open-source STL model from Thingiverse for testing the limitation of our printer.
After importing the model to CURA, I did some correspondent settings within the software before converting the STL file to gcode file for printing:
Here are the steps about how to use Ultimaker 2+ Extended to print models with single color after exporting the gcode file:
Since the white model was too bright to see the printing details, I re-printed the same model with orange filament.
We can see from the diagrams that the filament starts to fall when the printing angle is greater than 70 degrees.
I also tried to print a set of models in dual colors at once with Ultimaker 3 Extended.
