Re: G0 code

Sorry, I don't understand this. G1 is always the definited movement of the print head to a certain position AND allows extrusion with the parameter "E" ... mm or even no extrusion when "E" stays empty. What do you need more? G-code is bit older then 3D printing. G0 is "move without running a tool" ...

Re: litophane killed my printer

Try some methylene chloride to dissolve the petg. Or just replace the nozzle. Not sure how safe that is, sounds safe enough; need to figure out where to find it. Is the skin contact poisonous? Is inhaling it dangerous? I know toluene is supposed to dissolve it but that thing causes cancer! Nozzle i...

Re: litophane killed my printer

Further investigation of the blocked nozzle (as throat was fully cleaned) gives some interesting insight. I was printing some white PETG (~100g maybe) and then a kilo of dark red ABS, then around 200g of gold ABS when nozzle clogged. I kept nozzle for few days in acetone, all the ABS dissolved and w...

Re: litophane killed my printer

Good idea but I did that soo many times before. My printer is configured so that I have single enable pin that turns on/off "everything" (fans, motors, heaters, temperature monitoring...) and shorts the output of the Z motor (so it don't move completely free and Z platform slowly rolls down).. and t...

Re: Bridging Issues with PETG

For start I believe you are using part that is "too complex" and "too big" for this test. You are fighting with Simplify3D properly recognizing bridging, time to print the fairly big part with the unknown of the "new material". May I suggest you try something simpler, like this for e.g.: https://www...

Re: Top Layer has not enough overlap over the Infill.

Fixed in v4? Does anyone knowes? IMO it looks identical as 3.1.1. it will create solid layer under all but innermost perimeter, so if you have the usual 3 perimeter's it will go under outer and middle perimeter only. https://cdn.pbrd.co/images/GDIKUdC.png https://cdn.pbrd.co/images/GDILrml.png Not ...
