Re: Help diagnosing print quality problems

Well, after trying different ideas Pressure Advance fixed the problem. I still have some tuning to do but the improvement is beyond obvious. It fixed more than the basic problems I was having. I'll fine-tune some more but this is the first setting I've touched that's actually made a real difference ...

Help diagnosing print quality problems

I could use a little guidance on how to fine tune S3D to produce better results. Factory file attached. Basics PETG 0.8 mm nozzle, hardened steel 230 C nozzle, E3D volcano, BMG extruder 60 C bed 100 mm/s nominal speed Ball-screw/stepper driven machine, custom built This is what I think is going on A...

Re: Process, Profiles, Printers, Tuning, how to?

I studied German for a couple of years. Haven't used it for over a decade. If you have video for me to watch go ahead and post the link.

Thanks.

Re: Process, Profiles, Printers, Tuning, how to?

Question, why do you run both brass and hardened nozzles? Do you get better results with one vs the other? I've been trying to standardize on hardened nozzles for durability (and, frankly, to remove yet another variable).

Re: Process, Profiles, Printers, Tuning, how to?

Interesting point. The reason I like to include more information is because often-times changes of some of these parameters trigger other changes. A simple example might be changing from a 0.4 mm to a 1.0 mm nozzle, where, well, everything changes. One of my goals is to have fully qualified settings...

Re: Process, Profiles, Printers, Tuning, how to?

The most disconcerting aspect of Profiles for me seems to be that they are stored in the registry. As a software engineer myself, I can't really get my head around this idea. Profiles need to be files that are stored and managed by the user as they see fit. For example, if you are developing a new p...

Re: Process, Profiles, Printers, Tuning, how to?

Thanks, I will read immediately. My needs might be unique. I am working on technology development and need to track the relationship between a range of machines and dozens of configurations per machine. This might very well fall outside the realm of what S3D's project management system was intended ...

Re: How to use "First Layer Settings"?

Is there a logical reason for this or is this a bug? If it is, in fact, the latter, this means one should lookout for changes that might invalidate profiles with future updates. I have to tell you, I own and run real industrial CNC machines and the amateur voodoo that fills the 3D printing world is ...

Re: How to use "First Layer Settings"?

Forgot to mention this. I've been reading through the "Simplify 3D Settings" PDF by Clint Goss. In it he states (page 34): If your First Layer Height is below 100%, the extrusion amount will remain the same, only the Z-will change, but if you increase First Layer Height above 100%, the extrusion amo...
