Thinking I had solved the problem, I quickly rebuilt the light using the existing column that withstood the wind, with a plastic build (Infill 90%) and slid the new section over the still standing column to a depth of 30cm, But again the wind found the weak spot and it snapped it off.. Mark 4…

How many perimeters do you use?

Straight from CURA.. Layer thickness .3mm.. Shell thickness .3mm..Layer height .3mm..
Fill Density on the old lamp was 90% and 35% 0n Johnny 5..

This will confuse the hell out of @stratman...:lol:

Who's this Johnny 5? I know Jonny Quest and my cousin Johnny. Is Johnny 5 some robot from Doctor Who?

I'm also a bit confused because I'm not a Cura user. I was after the number of perimeters or wall thickness. If that's really 0.3mm then it would be less than the normal 0.4 nozzle, so it probably means something else. Reason I asked, I remember seeing some strength testing and it turned out that increasing the number of perimeters was more effective than increasing the infill. Something like 4-6 perimeters (or >2mm) should be nice and strong.

I have been calling the Mark 5 lamp standard Johnny 5 since its inception, so you must have been on holidays a long time..:hu

This is what I have and use and that’s it, but I’m quite happy with the results, if I could increase them more I would.. The more help the better..

Shell thickness looks good - 3mm (rather than 0.3mm), which makes good sense for your lamp.
