Re: Micro Z height adjustment while printing

After a few hundred prints, you know what you;'re looking for on the first layer. I'll watch the brim print, and if something needs a bit of a tweak, I can nudge one or two of the bed level screws on my machine to tighten or loosen the first layer where it needs it. It's not an unreasonable request....

Re: STL Files for Temperature Bracketing

The flat top on this cube works well for checking for a good extrusion multiplier. For extrusion width I start at 120% nozzle diameter and will tweak it up or down if there are gaps in thinner areas.

Do you use an particular infill and/or wall thickness?
I just made these yesterday so I've only used them once. I used 2 perimeters and 25% hex infill.

STL Files for Temperature Bracketing

When figuring out a new filament or process I often print out a bunch of little test parts, each one printed at a different temperature so I can see which one has the best appearance, layer strength, or whatever it is I'm looking for at the time. The problem is that once the parts are off the plate ...

Easy...….group the processes together..and any common setting will change on all when you change it on one!
Didn't know process groups was a thing. Thanks!

Editing multiple processes simultaneously

I've been building various versions of a part. I have 13 processes in the build. It's a bit of a pain when I want to make a minor change that needs to be repeated in all 13 processes - such as a temperature change due to changing material supplier. It would be lovely if multiple processes could be s...

Re: Factory file name generation

That's a good idea. I have a more-or-less file naming convention - much of it could be automated.

I use date (yyyy.mm.dd),[ printer, filament, temp, nozzle size, model name].

like
2020.03.06[N2 EPETG 245 06 My Parts]

I use that date format so a name sort keeps things in chronological order.

Re: Outer perimeter not solid

You may just need more perimeters in S3D.

Re: Print creating issues when bed moves

It's not related to the bed moving, but the nozzle stopping at the end of the layer. The process isn't perfect, and you'll always be able to see the end point. The effect of this can be minimized by experimenting with retraction settings, coast, wipe, and start point positioning. If the bump at the ...
