Re: Estimated time of print

Start here http://gcode.ws/ There's an even better estimator out there if you look up gcode estimator. The best timing you can get is if you can find your acceleration and jerk settings because more than 50% of your time will be spent there. And I totally feel your pain. I made a Fillenium Malcon th...

Re: Dual extrusion purge problems

I have a very different printer, but assume I will have a similar problem. What I've been looking into is doing a toolchange script. You'll want it to move outside the print area, change the head, do some purge out there, then move back in. At that point you can probably set retraction settings to b...

Re: Z offset for dual extruder

There is not one as far as I can find. Special setups, special extruder types like yours, they require special settings and mods to software. That said, if you are tilting the heads, or lifting then lowering one, then you should probably NOT have a toolhead offset. The offset is how far one will be ...

Profile for Taz 6 v3 extruder

This is a similar post to a subthread. I'd like a Taz 6 v3 print head profile! I started this based on someone else's Taz 5 v3 print head fff file and that post. Anyone that could help me modify this to work would be greatly appreciated. The following bugs definitely need working out, with a few mor...

Re: Profile for TAZ 5 with Dual Extruder v3

Thank you for your post on this. So others can find it and I can request some help, here's my modification to your code for the Taz 6 v3 print head. WARNING, it's still NOT complete! I need some expert help and tuning on it, here are the major errors (aside from the minor ones like oozing): 1. The s...

Re: Print order of skirt, ooze shield, and nozzles is wrong

Ug, I'm wondering this as well! First few test prints had to be done in cura, it's a mess, and I'm trying to move back to the better s3d, but this isn't good behavior at all. Trying to move beyond cura's poor settings that seem to be as half baked as this problem. Don't want to come back to more of ...

Re: Ooze Control: Extra Restart Distance

I'm posting in this both to flag it for myself in case there IS a way to do this (I just got a dual extruder), and also to give a helpful suggestion. I'd think you should try setting up multiple processes for the area that's doing less printing. Change the process settings for just that height - it ...

Re: Feature Request: Split large models into smaller pieces

So a couple different things, if I miss some stuff, it's not intentional. First, I ran across this video from s3d just this week that I never knew about despite using it for years: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1V-5aA03dQ Since that's not what we're really talking about here, I would love those f...

Re: More Speed Options

I definitely agree with more speed options. Absolutely in the case of dense supports, but I think all the other suggestions are reasonable as well to look into adding.

Re: cull prime pillar

Hmmm, just getting my new dual head working, and I'd agree with this feature. Seems like it could be left simple for now, just the calculation you recommended, and let someone else hack it further if they have a bunch of on/off stuff they end up doing.
