Step 1: Design in Makers Empire
Step 2: Printing the Base Layer
You need the following materials - painter tape, ribbon, and filament with your 3D design.
You want to print out about 3 layers prior to adding the ribbon so that the filament can adhere to itself through the filament.
Pause the print and raise the extruder so that you can add the ribbon.
Step 3: Adding the Ribbon
| || |
After 3 layers have printed, I add the ribbon and adhere it to the build plate with painter tape.
I resume the print but also monitor that nothing interferes with the extruder.
Normally after the first pass, I can then walk away and let the print finish.
