Which cantilever can be 3D printed? There is a general rule of thumb when it comes to 3D printing cantilevers. The angle of the overhang must not exceed 45°. This is to make sure that each successive layer has enough support. This also means that at 45° the 3D model prints well because each layer is in about 50% contact with the layer below.

But now comes the question, is your printer capable of printing more than 45° without dying in the attempt?

Performing an overhang test is a good way to find out what types of angles your printer can successfully create without using supports. This overhang test print has a series of increasing angles to show at what point the printer begins to have trouble. Results from this test will help determine the Max Overhang Angle used for support generation.

Printing Conditions:

  • Nozzle Size : 0.4
  • Layer Height : 0.2
  • Initial Layer Height : 0.2
  • Line Width : 0.4
  • Wall Line Count : 3
  • Top/Bottom Thickness : 0.8 mm
  • Enable Retraction : True
  • Generate Support : False

Estimated printing time: 35min
