11 layers (2.5mm) into the z axis and it's looking okay so far.
Only has to do another 374 layers without any glitches.
In progress shot
(yes, I am printing with allTheSupports! because this is a thin and tall model with a bunch of nothin in the middle and I would like to have a chance at seeing this succeed even if it means a bit of time with the knife doing cleanup)
(plus, removing internal supports is almost kinda like bubblewrap in terms of being able to spark joy)
first of eight centimeters and we're doin' fine
6.01cm of 8.23cm total
last 80 layers coming up and this thing is still standing!
2 hours 45 minutes so far, with an estimated 44 minutes remaining
Not perfect, but a great first pass!
and with that, I am going to allow myself to remember that I'm actually sick and nursing a cold and get myself back into bed.
@djsundog Agh, sorry, I guess my first glimpse of the base printing was right and it wasn't just a camera trick. Looks like it's pretty good modulo base adhesion making the bottom curl up. People will recommend tape or glue, but personally I just make the raft wider.
