Re: Is there a way to get processes back when changing printers?

I also use about 10 different printers. The printer profiles are a joke. I can't imagine anyone using this efficiently unless you have only two printers and they're just two different versions of iPrusa or something. The way I organize my profiles is save a factory file for each printer, and when I ...

Re: Multiple print sequential ordering

Can you update how you solved this? I just did... lol. The way I said in my previous post worked just fine. The other way to do it is to duplicate all the parts, manually align each of the duplicates on top of each other by typing the X Y Z offset coordinates, then in the Advanced tab, use "start p...

Re: Extruder fail

Your nozzle is clogged. Get a new one. Even if it's a new nozzle - it's a bad one. Get a new one. When degradate builds up in a nozzle, the orifice size is much smaller. Or if there was a machining defect. Most extruders can still get enough push on the filament to squeeze material through smaller h...

Re: Trouble Printing Smaller ABS

Here is the factory file attached for of the pieces in particular I'm attempting to print. Much better. I have determined your problem. You are simply squirting too much material into the part. You can't use 100% infill unless you've absolutely done a perfect job on calibration with both your print...

Re: Multiple print sequential ordering

I think I figured a way to do this, and am printing properly now. I will document here for any people who may be having a similar issue. What didn't work was using the gpx.exe that came with S3D (also available on github), after copy+pasting the chunk of code that was mis-ordered to the proper place...

Re: Trouble Printing Smaller ABS

To help, more information may be necessary. You could link the factory file and some images/youtube vids, or share the general settings: - ABS manufacturer and/or their recommended starting temps - hot end temp that you're using - print platform temp - fan temp - print speed That said, based on the ...

Multiple print sequential ordering

Due to the off-centered positioning of the hot end on my print head, I would like to print from left to right on the bed. Due to a low gantry height (12 mm), I need to print the parts in two sections in the vertical direction. If I set both the parts and processes in the correct order, I can repeata...

Re: First support layer not sticking.

5 suggestions: Use as fat of a first layer as you can. So for 0.2 mm layer height, set the first layer to ~150%, not 90%. This will help buffer any height variation across your substrate. Include a skirt and/or brim to cover 75% of the support area with a fully solid first layer. Edit: You could als...

Re: Strange gaps on layers when printing

Do you have a temperature monitor? or a way to do that? I've seen something similar to that when there is wiring issues necessitating a thermocouple/resist replacement, or a heater replacement. When the heater is disconnected (something as simple as the print heat moving around is jiggling/bending t...
