How to 3D Print Benchy?

How a 3DBenchy can tell where your 3D prints need …

How long does it take to 3D print a Benchy?

The 3DBenchy is designed to be measured from specific points to ensure accurate printing including dimensional accuracy, warping, deviations and tolerances and it has a relatively short printing time of around 1 hour.

Is Benchy hard to print?

The boat has lots of little features that can be hard to print: arch ways, cylinders, overhangs, smooth surfaces, tiny details, and horizontal holes. The tiny tugboat’s small size also means you can print one fairly quick and it doesn’t use a lot of material.

What setting should I use for Benchy?

  • Scale: 1:1 (unmodified in size, from bow to stern #3DBenchy.
  • Layer height: 0,2 mm.
  • Infill: 10%
  • Print speed (extrusion): up to 50 mm/s.
  • Print speed (travel): up to 150 mm/s.

What is a Benchy in 3D printing?

The name ‘Benchy’ is short for benchmark. This little boat is designed with geometric features, such as the portholes and an open cabin, that provide a challenge to 3D printers. When using a new filament, or 3D printer, the 3D Benchy can be used to see how they measure up.

Should Benchy be printed without support?

The 3D model is designed to print at 1:1 scale without support materials. It is challenging for most 3D printers but the small volume (15.55 cm3) typically prints in well under two hours and does not require much material.

How long does Ender 3 take to print Benchy?

The 3D Benchy object was 3D printed with PLA filament (printing material), according to the following recommended settings for extrusion-based 3D printers (FFF). The exact printing time was 1 hour and 41 minutes.

Does Benchy boat float?

Who invented the 3DBenchy?

3DBenchy was designed by Creative Tools member Daniel Norée (the creator of OpenRC Truggy, printable wrench, etc). He had the task to create 3D file that combined as many geometric features as possible into a small recognisable object.

What is over extrusion in 3D printing?

As the name implies, over-extrusion occurs when your 3D printer extrudes too much material. And as you might expect, this can ruin the quality of your prints. Dimensional inaccuracy, layer drooping, stringing, oozing, blobs, and even jams can be the result of an over-extruding printer.
