Re: Increase z build dimension? (FFCP)

I'm just trying to make it clear that any setting you change in S3D pertaining to Z-height WILL NOT change the firmware Z-height limits. So you still need to fix the firmware or disable the virtual endstops in the firmware. Not trying to be contrary, but I certainly did print up to 170 mm using the...

Re: Increase z build dimension? (FFCP)

I totally agree with you that the firmware contains a max z variable, and if one changes that default it would let you set max z to whatever you want (I assume that's what you mean by having your firmware setup correctly?). S3D (and other software) can override that variable so you don't have to mes...

Re: Increase z build dimension? (FFCP)

It doesn't seem to be an issue with the firmware, just the ability of S3D to override the firmware variable from an imported profile. Again, just switching to the "Default" protocol and modifying everything to fit the printer and change the Z dimension to 170 mm was all it took. Note: I also changed...

Re: Increase z build dimension? (FFCP)

I believe I figure it out. You cannot alter the profile that gets imported when the machine type is set, i.e. FlashForge Creator Pro profile. If you edit the "Default" protocol to look just like the FlashForge protocol, but change the build z-build dimension it appears to work (from my simple test)!

Re: Increase z build dimension? (FFCP)

I tested with Replicator G over USB, and it was straightforward to jog above 150mm with the controls. My feeling that this is something that is related to the profile that S3D loads when setting up that prevents jogging above 150 mm. It might be that increasing the z build dimension in the profile w...

Increase z build dimension? (FFCP)

I'm trying to get my Flashforge Creator Pro to increase the z building dimension to 175 mm (from the stock 150 mm). There is clearly enough room to be able to do this. I can change the values in the machine definition and in the process of S3D, but when I try to test if I can actually move the build...

Re: Ooze shield retraction

I think there is a similar issue with printing any additions. I noticed that there are no retractions when there are multiple brims for a single piece. Notice that this only happens at the base between brims.

No retraction between brims?

I have a ball-and-stick molecular model I am trying to print and I have consistently found that printing the spheres that are on the build plate are likely to pull-off during the print. I thought I would try a brim to help secure the spheres (4 brim outlines, 6 layers). There are about 12 different ...
