Re: Makergear M2 Configuration

Yes i see those dashes too. There is a pic i posted on page 1. I confirmed that its creator showing the coasting. If you turn off coasting and do the preview they will be gone.

Re: Makergear M2 Configuration

dave i'm with you, kapton and abs glue is the only thing that works for me too. 190 is a bit low for abs, or was that temp for pla? so far with makergear and reprapper abs i have found 225-230 to be the sweetspot. i have some from makergeeks that really needs to be run way hotter for good interlayer...

Re: Makergear M2 Configuration

When i did the torture test i didnt use any support. I figured when they did the actual test they would not have used support to see how the printer handled that. If i use support i might be able to get it done. The one part of the arch didnt get knocked off until almost reaching the center point. H...

Re: Makergear M2 Configuration

dale, i turned on the g2/g3 and tried it out. i really didnt notice any difference in the output. it already was really smooth so i dont think it could get any better and it didnt get worse. any flaws i have at thins point in my print are only where the extruder starts and stops. its really small bu...

Re: Change of Filament instruction

Well i am in no way an expert but it seems to me to change filament mid print you need to be there ready to go anyway so i would think its best for the person to just pause the print, do the change and resume.

Re: Estimated print time & Filament

Imo thats a really fantastic idea. Not all of us use the software and our printers as just hobbyists. I do alot of automotive type painting and my color software for my paint system has all those cost estimate features. Really helpful.

Re: New user here and it's not looking pretty

i cant really help you on the raft since i have never printed with one. glad to see you are getting that 1st layer down better. the bed might be level but in that pic it just looked as if the plastic wasnt being pushed down on the bed enough like the 1st layer height was too high. the edges of each ...

Re: Makergear M2 Configuration

thanks dale, i will definately give the g2/g3 a try and let you know what i find out. i only played with the one roll of pla that came with my m2. it was far easier to print with than abs. not that abs is really bad to print with, its just different. the pla just doesnt work for me because it distor...
