Mid-print Filament Change difficulties

Hi all, I am using this piece of code: ;Change filament G91 ; set relative positioning G0 Z40 ; raise Z (drop bed) G90 ; set absolute positioning M84 S0 ; disable idle timeout M25 ; Pause SD Print G92 E0 ; zero extruder to pause my print and change the filament. It seems as if you have to retract an...

Re: External Fill Pattern: Angle

Well, this is exactly the problem I am having as well, except I can't rotate the part due to its size. Since it has been 7 months since the original post, maybe something has changed and someone can help us get to where we would like to be. :D

Re: Asymmetric supports on "symmetric" model

Thanks Clayton, that was the kind of feedback I was hoping for. I knew the model was a mess, but I had cleaned it up in netfabb. Unfortunately, I had made some changes and forgot to go through netfabb again. I am impressed how Creator handles these kinds of problems. I have had models print easily t...

Re: Temperature output log

Clayton, I would like to file a formal request for this capability - or informal, or whatever it takes. Not just from the standpoint of PID work, but also to sort out why some levels of a print are just nicer than others. I think it is related to temperatures, but I can't prove it. I have tried the ...

Asymmetric supports on "symmetric" model

Hi, I am getting supports on only one side of a model that should be symmetric. I know that it is unlikely to be perfectly symmetric, but it is close. I am attaching the factory file so you can see what I mean. Is there a setting I am missing? This is the first model I have done with supports, so I ...

Temperature output log

Hi all, Is there a way to output the temperature to a log file? I want to play with the PID gains, since it seems like the control is not very good when changing temperatures during the print. Also, it would be nice to have the temperature profile for when the prints are very good in sections, or ve...

Re: Holes on top layers with M2

bogohack,

Have you tried using more exterior walls? It seems like this should close up the holes on steep gradients like you are seeing.

Have a great day,
Jim

Re: Mysterious Holes on Print

Would you be so kind as to tell us exactly what you changed? I don't understand how the extrusion settings could affect the part like this. I think if you described what you changed I might better understand what I am doing.

Have a great day,
Jim

Good catch. I see it in my gcode also:

Re: PLA High quality profile doesn't "cap" parts

Hi, I think this is related to the problem I have been having and noted in the "Wall thickness below STL thickness" thread. I have been able to get what I want with Slic3r. I hope that this is something that the Creator folks will be working on soon. I don't want to have to use Slic3r every time I h...
