I am currently trying to print an elastic roller. The roller looks like two frustums attached at the base and it would be used in the composites industry. I tried to make at 25, 45deg and horizontally on the build plate. While all the angled prints failed, the horizontal prints have left me in dilemma. The first print was completely adequate, barring a small hiccup (pointed in the photo), the second print completely failed. The components were printed in same configuration (supports and orientation). Can anyone please explain me why two similar prints have vastly different result?
I have uploaded the geometry of the part as well. If someone has experience in printing files like these, can you share your prints, the configuration in which you printed and general design principles for the elastic resin?
