About this Part

This part attaches to the float valve, 1/4" black irrigation tubing, and blue pex pipe.

How to Successfully 3D Print This Part

Approximate print time = 10 minutes
Filament: Taulman T-glase, any color
Print temperature: 250C
Bed temperature: 0C - 70C
Nozzle size: 0.5mm - 0.7mm (0.4mm nozzle is too small to print t-glase)
Layer height: 0.35mm (do not go below 0.3mm)
Print speed: 25 - 40 mm/s (use 50% for first layer)
Filament flow rate: 90% - 94%
Infill: 100%

DO NOT use ABS or PLA. The model will be too fragile.

Recommended Slicer: CURA

!! IMPORTANT !! You MUST print in a way that allows adequate layer cooling. There are essentially four ways to accomplish this:

1) Print 3 or more parts at a time so that each part has time to cool before the next layer.

2) Set your slicer to force a layer wait time of 15 seconds or more.

3) Print using a sacrificial cylinder object far away from your primary object, forcing the print head to move a long distance, thereby providing additional cooling time for each layer.

4) Crank up your fan speed to 100% during these layers.
