I am new to the 3D printing world and I would appreciate if someone can give me advice on how to 3D print moving parts without them sticking together. I recently 3D printed the predator pliers from Thingiverse and it came out very nice except for the fact that the parts where stuck together and I could not move any of the pieces. I had to use an Exacto knife to loosen the parts and in doing so my predator pliers broke and I was very sad.
The printer and the settings that I use are:
- PowerSpec WanHao Duplicator I3 PLUS 3D Printer
Ultimaker Cura 3.4.1
Black PLA Plastic 1.75 mm
- 0.4 mm nozzle
- 60 °C Bed Temp
200 °C Extruder Temp
20 fill (usually-sometimes more)
Layer height 0.15
UPDATE: I printed a PIP from thingiverse and it worked out perfectly. All the parts move.
