Re: 2.2 Release Discussion Thread!

Last response to "something broken with z stepping on makerbot rep 2" -- I just tried printing parts on my second Cupcake that still has an MK6 with 3mm filament and changing to 1.05 extrusion multiplier works wonders there too.

Re: 2.2 Release Discussion Thread!

Again, in response to "something broken with z stepping on makerbot rep 2", I changed my extrusion multiplier from .98 which worked in the previous version to 1.05 and printed just fine! Before that, the printer would stop feeding the filament about 1 cm [layer height] into the print. For the record...

Re: 2.2 Release Discussion Thread!

In response to "something broken with z stepping on makerbot rep 2" in this thread, I can say that I'm having the same problem on my Cupcakes. Everything worked fine on the previous release and now, every print strips the filament from too much pressure after about 1 cm of printing height. I can go ...

Re: Printing on a Cupcake with sailfish

Sir, good to see you here too. Can you explain the 2560 number to me? I have the old style threaded rods with 1.25mm pitch and a motor driver v3.3 board. If I run the math, I get 1600 steps in one rotation divided by 1.25 mm to get 1280 steps per mm... Note: changing to 1280 should make my squished ...

Re: Printing on a Cupcake with sailfish

I figured out the extruder flow -- it needs to be absolute extrusion distance and was defaulted to relative.

I can now use Simplify3D to make a gcode file that Replicatorg and execute on the printer. I can't use the x3g file though -- not enough z axis action...

Re: Printing on a Cupcake with sailfish

I checked carefully everything again and this is what I know: If I compile and print with Replicatorg, everything works fine. The Z axis turns about 1/8 of a turn for .12mm layer height. If I compile and print with Simplify3D using the same firmware settings, the Z axis turns only a tiny fraction of...

Printing on a Cupcake with sailfish

I've got most of this working except the Z axis motion is a fraction of what it needs to be to work well. The printing is coming out on top of itself, smashed into itself and looks terrible. Everything else seems about right. in Tools > Firmware > X3G, I've picked Cupcake with Pololu XYZ and MK5/6 e...
