Setting Z Height

I have an Anycubic I3 Mega which I am adding an IR sensor to in order to calibrate the height of the Z axis. All working well, however the Z home position is 2.5mm above the bed, so I need to lower the Z axis by 2.5mm. Reading up on this subject provides details for using the G92 and M851 gcode. I h...

Re: Printing undersized holes?

You may find the following to be of use: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1712198 These plates provide holes in increasing diameter between 3mm and 25mm. When designing parts which need to accomodate bolts/screws and other physical objects you can easily find what size hole you need in the new desi...

Incorrect Action When Purging Filament

During the startup script I like to purge material by issuing a G1 E25 F300 instruction. However more often than not when S3D executes that command the extruder unloades filament and I end up with several 10's of mm filament missing. Frequently this follows a previous print where the purge operation...

FLSun QQ Problem

I am trying to get my FLSUN QQ printer working with S3D. It's communicating okay, but after a few 10's of seconds it stops moving, showing the following in the message window: READ: echo:busy: paused for user busy: paused for user It doesn't stop moving on each of these messages, but it does eventua...

Hard Reset Issue

When I hit the big red button on the printer control panel it does what is necessary and causes my CR-10 to reboot. Perfect. However after that reboot the start script for any following print causes the filament purge (G1 E25 F300) to go in the wrong direction - it sucks rather than pushes filament....

Re: Creality CR10 Speed

I just discovered that I can change the feed rate by twiddling the knob on the printers control panel. This resolves ther issue when I'm watching the printer, however swhould I be scripting this in the configuration?

Creality CR10 Speed

I have a new Creality CR10 printer. All working fine but there is one problem that I don't understand. After printing for several hours the printer slows right down to a crawl. I've configured the feed rate to be about 90mm/second, and though it starts up at that rate it appears to slow down to just...

Re: CR-10 GCode issues regarding adhesion to glass.

I just got a CR10 and whilst I am very pleased with it the one problem I've noted is that the heated bed tops out at around 90 degrees - I have always used 110 degrees when printing with ABS and frankly the heated bed would take forever to get up there. My experience of ABS is that it doesn't stick ...

Triple Extruders?

I'm viewing the option of using a Diamond extruder, which offers use of triple filament.

As far as I know, S3D doesn't support triple extruders.

Is there any support for triple extruders?
