Re: Printing a threaded insert and accepting piece

I’ve printed many parts with threads and have made several observations about doing it. I can easily print 3/8-16 Bolts, Nuts and threaded Bosses, as shown below. 1. The resulting threads (for me) have always been good enough to mate with intended part (nuts, bosses, etc…). The fit between mated par...

Re: Filament Storage

Geeks are always tweaking… I had an idea for a bread proofing (raising) bin and was so pleased with results that I transferred the idea to storing filament. Simple concept: use a Mr. Coffee mug warmer in large tote for filament! Photo attached: It’s on a timer (On 1 hr, Off 1 hr). Mr. Coffee uses 17...

Re: Printing hollow with a clean inside?

Your post made me curious so… I loaded a simple solid block (in this case, it has a Hex shape). I set: Infill = 0 Bottom Layer = 0 Top Layer = 2 Shells = 2 Height (z) = 0.3 Bingo! Screenshot attached… View from the bottom shows it hollow with no bottom surface/layer. I can’t comment on your part/sha...

Re: Script for extruding filament at set temperature

Generally, you’ll use M-codes. Different printers can use custom M-codes so, understand what your machine prefers but, most likely you’ll use the following in your custom start script (in Simplify’s process, script panel. They worked on my older DiVinci): Research to learn what commands and paramete...

Re: Nozzle hitting clips on start of print

Then, edit/change the code - Gcode is simply a text file and there is no particular order of what comes first, second third... X Y Z or Y X Z or Z X Y.... get it? You can tell it to do what you want it to do. And, 'Yes' you can combine several G command on one line... Hence, my very first post: It's...

Re: Nozzle hitting clips on start of print

Mixing Apples and Oranges... First: If you like the Start script from Cura, simply copy it and paste it into Simplify's Script panel (in the Start script panel/tab) Second: Those scripts are not the same and that, begs the question: where did the start script for Simplify come from ? Is it the start...

Re: Nozzle hitting clips on start of print

If you have clips on your bed, as shown, then you don't have 'every-bit' of bed area to print on. You lose about 1/4 inch on the front (and probably rear if clips are there). Might as well tell the printer to not use those small print areas by setting up a new bed size and an offset... Beyond sugges...

Re: Nozzle hitting clips on start of print

I'm still a bit unclear on just what & when you want to raise the nozzle. But, regardless of my lack of clarity, if wanting to raise it, look at the code snippet I posted: This line raises it... G1 Z10.0 F1000; That raises the nozzle 10.0mm (at a speed of 1000mm.min. You don't need to include the sp...

Re: Nozzle hitting clips on start of print

I recently designed parts for a V6 hot-end on my prusa printers. That put the home position off of the bed. I use binder clips for the glass and needed to keep nozzle away from them. The attached image of my start script may help you regarding Gcode. But, it’s up to you to know the axis pos/neg dire...
