Re: Auto vs Manual extrusion width

Thanks for the info guys. One thing I can't wrap my head around is if a 0.4mm nozzle extrudes roughly 0.48 of filament, we was the default setting set to manual.0.4, shouldn't it have been set to auto or manual/0.48?

Re: Flashforge Creator Pro - String only at end of print

Wouldn't the filament be too high for the next print if I did that?

Flashforge Creator Pro - String only at end of print

My prints seems to come out ok with no stringing on the models except when the print finally finishes, I get one long string at the bed moves away from the print head as shown here https://goo.gl/photos/2UxQhwzyJeyurG6v7

Re: New FlashForge Creator Pro X Offset problem

That's the same as mine. The start gcode is on the wrong side for the left extruder, it sends the head to far right initially and hits the end stop causing the printer to be in the wrong position. I used the suggestions here and it solved the issue http://www.thingiverse.com/groups/flashforge/topic:...

Re: New FlashForge Creator Pro X Offset problem

I think they have several interations of the FFCP 2016. Can you move your left nozzle clear of the bed on the right hand side?

I thought one benifit of dual extruding what to be able to mix materials such as PVA for supports etc?

Re: Toggle dual nozzle temps with tool change script?

Any update on this guys? I think I have an issue where PLA is caramelising while the tool is waiting for the other tool to finish.

Re: New FlashForge Creator Pro X Offset problem

Thank god I say this post, my FFCP is also having issue with the default profile. Mine seems different again as the left nozzle doesn't clear the right side of the bed, which is where Simplify3D tries to prime. When it moves to the wait position, it hits an endstop which in turn throws off the posit...
