Re: New printer can't handle unsupported overhangs

Obviously you don't use a larger nozzle for a small part. When appropriate I use a .75mm nozzle with .8mm EW and .5 layer height. Speed must be reduced or the hot end will not be able to keep up. The job will still get finished faster than a small nozzle printing at break neck speed. I try not to d...

For instance a setting of 1 is too much when your layer height is .5mm
Layer height .5mm is really appalling. Can I ask what's your line width and speed? It's difficult to imagine what your overhangs and bridges look like.

Re: Nozzle diameter impact on Extrusion multiplier

When required, the slow down does not offset the larger layer height and extrusion width. This seems to need some careful balance. I also find parts printed with a larger nozzle are often significantly stronger than the same part printed with a smaller nozzle. If you care more about the mechanical ...

Re: Nozzle diameter impact on Extrusion multiplier

You may need to slow your print speed with a larger nozzle, as the hot end needs heat 2x the plastic for a .5mm nozzle over the MG standard .35mm. Hi @zemlin In my experience, a large (0.6+ mm) nozzle ofren allows larger layer height, but the speed need to be slowed down. The net result is often lo...

Re: Nozzle diameter impact on Extrusion multiplier

The other thing that affect it is the extrusion width. I DO NOT use auto, I set to a range depending on what I am printing but rull of thumb is .4 to .5 larger than nozzle. So makergear default of the .35 nozzle is .4, with a.5 nozzle I use .55, with the .75 I use .8 Not auto Hi @airscapes Thank yo...

where are the profiles stored?

I often backup the file C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Simplify3D\S3D-Software\savedState.factory.

But the profiles are not stored in the factory file. Does anybody know in which file all the profiles are stored? Thank you!

Re: Adjust printing speed for layers below n sec

So the answer to your first question is NO....the layer will take whatever time it takes at the slowest speed you have set. Stopping the nozzle will destroy the print! Cura has a setting Lift Head, which makes the nozzle wait until the minimum time is reached. Lack of the function of waiting makes ...
