Re: Refusing to add support beneath

Nothing to do with bridging settings, I'm afraid! The auto-generation of supports is dependant on the combination of the bottom-facing area and width of the part and the settings used. Needless to say that in this case, the algoryth is not finding sufficient downward facing area per unit bed size to...

Corruption in profile........delete pr...

Re: Changing extrusion multiplier during print

It can be done.....but is complicated and messy to set up.

An alternative way of tuning the first layer WITHOUT messing with the extrusion multiplier is detailed in this thread:

Re: Changing a layer flow rate in a script?

Here's a very simple way of achieving the same result...... 1) Increase the first layer height 2) Reduce the Global-Z height. Just because there isn't a setting that says "Make a cup of tea." it doesn't mean you're going to go thirsty!! I do know of a way to increase the flow rate for one specific l...

Re: printing hole for motor shaft

The first thing I would do is to modify the part so that the hole is much deeper ....so the bottom of the hub almost reaches the gearbox frame. Those motor/gearbox combos do have an enormous flat milled in the shaft, and to get a well aligned fit, you do need the hub right down on the shaft where th...

Re: One way of working with Profiles, etc

LESSON FOUR After saving the factory file above, again I could tidy up by removing the model and deleting the Process....so lets do so this time. I want to print a third item using the default version of the Profile I modified for the first print. I load the model and add the profile. Notice that t...
