Re: Automatic Pause Function

Ok thanks... I'll try that

So what does that code specify?

M322 means what exactly?
and am I right to assume Z20 means Pause (not stop) when the Z axis moves down 20mm?

Cheers

Cheers

Start Printing at height ....

There's a feature to start the print at a set height under the advanced tab... I think this is an excellent feature as if you catch a print that's about to fail, you can stop it, fix the problem and resume printing. However, instead of specifying this height in mm, can we also have the option to cho...

Re: Gaps between outer wall and infill

Here's my factory file...

So what makes you think it's a hardware issue (just asking so I can diagnose these things...) and is there a caliberation piece I can print to confirm this??

Re: Gaps between outer wall and infill

Hi,

I haven't changed from the default speed... I've got the Wanhao Duplicator4x

I'm at work now so I'll upload the factory file when I get back home!

Yeah I thought the holes looked really bad! Really need to print some kind of calibration piece

Re: Gaps between outer wall and infill

it seems like you under extruding a little. your also going the wrong way with your overlap. you want to increase the %. 15 i think is default. i have always used that nut i think the main issue there is your not putting out enough plastic overall. measure your filament correctly then bump up or mu...
