Re: Makergear M2 Configuration

Not a solution, but I'm curious if unchecking "Use random start-point for outer-most outlines" would affect how this problem presents itself.

Request: More smarts in setting the extruder temperature

Admittedly, I don't know if this is a firmware problem or a Simplify3D Creator problem, but I wanted to put this out there. It seems that when I manually set a temperature in Simplify3D Creator, it could be a lot smarter about reaching the temperature. It looks like it puts on the heater full blast ...

Re: Bug? RAFT seems to consider more than the object's base

Jm, what are you using on the glass to help adhesion? Nothing. Here are the things that I do: General prep -- 1] Clean the bed with windex 2] Wipe the bed with a microfiber cloth 3] Level the bed extremely well with feeler gauges (left,right,up,down, then diagonals) 4] Measure my bed distance with ...

Re: Bug? RAFT seems to consider more than the object's base

Finished. 24 hours, 20 minutes. I have to clean up the print -- it wasn't designed for clean 3D printing. There was a lot of bridging going on. This thing stuck to the borosilicate glass so tight that I had to rest it in the deep freezer to get it free. (And people seem surprised when I say that I p...

Re: Bug? RAFT seems to consider more than the object's base

i see what you mean. that print in the pic looks funny. looks like a pile of ooze melting into a puddle. It looks really weird partially printed, but I like the look of the completed piece. (Come to think of it, the completed piece looks pretty weird, too.) With my current settings, I'm looking at ...

Re: Bug? RAFT seems to consider more than the object's base

I settled on just printing it at 200% rather than trying to see how close I could get to 225%.
Here is an image which demonstrates the large unnecessary raft:

So much wasted plastic. (And it also takes away from how big I can print the object.)

Re: Bug? Skirt seems to consider more than the object's base

Crap. I mixed the terms raft and skirt. Let me correct myself. Actually, aside from the unnecessary raft material (which I do not want), it is still a problem. I want the outer border of my project, at the top, to be at the edges of the print area. I have to subtract my maximum size by two times my ...

Bug? RAFT seems to consider more than the object's base

So I was printing out Voronoi Yoda... Voronoi Yoda When I previewed my gcode (and subsequently printed it on the printer) a problem arose with the skirt. http://i.imgur.com/0Bio514.jpg It seems that too much is being considered for how the skirt should be made. Instead of looking at the layers which...

[DONE] Feature Request: Heat management for small objects

Would it be possible for Simplify3D Creator manage the heat generated by printing in too confined of an area too quickly? Here is a recent example I ran into: HingeBox at Thingiverse This printed absolutely great until it got to the diamond shaped nub at the top of the print. Because it was such as ...
