Re: I'm Back, Duplicator 6 notes

Wow, your print of that fort is really nice! Almost perfect as far as I can see!

Glad you are okay after the accident!

Re: Over extruding?

What percentages would you recommend for "thin wall perimeter overlap" and "infill outline overlap"? I mostly use the default thin wall settings (I believe that's enabling "allow gap fill" and setting overlap to 10%). For outline overlap, you can read this page for when you need to adjust it: https...

Re: treating surface like a face instead of perimiter

It's hard to guess without being able to look at the file. Can you attach your factory file?

Re: stringing and burns between raft and first layer?

If the filament is burnt like that, it usually means that it was stuck to the outside of the nozzle for a few minutes. So next time you print, watch the nozzle closely and maybe you can see what happens and how the plastic gets stuck to it.

Re: Over extruding?

Those look like really nice prints already! It's possible you may be over-extruding a small bit, but it doesn't look like much. You could try printing a cube with 5 perimeters, and then slowly reduce the extrusion multiplier until you start to see gaps between the perimeters (that's when you know yo...

Re: Cooling tab overrides

I think they are independent. You can make the fan come on whenever you want, so just adjust those settings how you like. The speed reduction settings are totally separate.

Re: Wanhao D4 Homing and other issues with S3D

If I go to Help > Configuration Assistant, the Wanhao Duplicator 4 dual and single profiles are already there. So I'm not sure why people are saying they aren't in that list... For reference, the duplicator 4 is pretty much identical to the duplicator 4x, the later just added some doors and windows ...

Re: Surface issues with Mk2

It looks like your retraction settings need a little work. They give you all the controls you need, since you can use coasting to get less plastic at the end, and extra restart distance to get less plastic at the beginning. So you just have to find the right combination that closes the loop without ...

Re: Settings not being saved on Version 3.1.1

I am able to save all my settings in 3.1.1 fine. What exact setting isn't saving? Maybe list the exact steps you are using to change it so others can try?

Re: calibration s3d and volumetric feature of a firmware

The S3D E-values aren't volumetric, it's in mm of filament. From looking at your factory file, you had the width set to 0.45mm, but your calculations you were using 0.5mm, so make sure to change that to 0.5mm. If you set the extrusion multiplier in S3D back to 1.0, then you have a 0.5mm width, and 0...
