Re: Surfaces not printing smooth

For starters, you'll never get a "perfect" finish on the underside of parts over support material. This is why 3D printing is such a black art for some people. Having said that, lets see if you can improve over what you have so far. Rather than throwing values at you saying "Try that&...

Re: Perimeters Not Bonding.

Not knowing what its set at, I can't suggest what to increase it to.....but try increasing the outline overlap.

There again, looking at the gaps in the top surface, I'm wondering if your extrusion multiplier might need increasing......again, from and to, is anybody's guess!

Re: "Choose Start Point Closest to Specific Location" HOW?

The xy coordinates are the coordinates of the bed of YOUR machine....and not anything to do wit the model. This majes giving an "easy" answer impossible....so you'll need to work the answer out yourself. If you go to "preview" mode for a print, the XYZ gizmo ( the red/green/blue ...

Re: the desired binary xg3 fije was not created

That error has something to do with the gpx.exe failing to create its output file...namely an x3g file.

Suggest you check a couple of things....write permissions in the directory the file should be written, and possibly a space issue.

Re: Loose seams. Missing part

Have a read of this thread:

It explains a super simple way of sorting out issues where multiple parts are put together in some 3D packages.

Re: Difference in curved surfaces

Now take a look at the 3D model that you printed the model from. My guess is that you'll see distinct faces in the mode that coincide with the flats on the model. Remember, any 3D shape is made up a mesh of points joined by straight lines. To get a smoother "curne" you'll need to add more ...

Re: Order of Printing Multiple Parts

I assume you've not tried using sequential printing then? I also assume you've not seen the reduction in the printhead "jumping about the bed" and the subsequent reduction in print time. And I also assume you've not seen the reduction in stringing and other issues caused by the printhead e...

Re: How to recover print setting from an old Gcode with more than one process

I know the horse has bolted......but may I suggest a way of preventing this happening again in the future. A very simply routine to get into.......save a factory file for everything you print. Disk space is cheap. Wigs are expensive! PS For those who didn't get the joke.....when you get frustrated y...
