There should be pictures and surely texts about it on the old bfb forum that's cached on the internet (dead since they sold their souls) ... but yes I can't print ABS below xx% of the nozzle width but PP, PP stretches like crazy, you can print as thin as you like .. the problem with PP is that it will pull the filament out of the nozzle, it doesn't snap that easy ... I should get more PP in next few weeks I'll send you pics if you like .. PP - easy, ABS - not that much .. but still you say you can get 60% reliably ? on a 0.35mm nozzle that's .2mm, lets say 0.25mm for 0.4mm nozzle and you can, easily print 100% of the nozzle size, even 120% should not be a problem for ABS if you have a flat tip nozzle, but 100% you'll get even with a pointy one, so we'r talking 0.25 - 0.4mm span of a wall thickness. So you can print easilydorsai3d wrote:Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. I want to believe, but I've never gotten reliable results printing single walls at anything below about 60% of nozzle width, and that even only works in certain cases. Physics just isn't on our side for this.arhi wrote:Take this simple example, 0.8mm 8 year old nozzle jammed into crappy rapman extruder prints PP reliably 0.1mm to 1.2mm wide wall in "single go" .. so if you thin wall is 0.1mm it will print it and it will be 0.1mm, if your wall is 0.3mm it will print it again in single go, no need to make 3 0.1mm lines to do it (and definitely don't need to vibrate the hack out of the printer to do it) same for 0.32mm or 0.51mm or 1.15mm or 1.2mm .. each of them can be printed in one single line
0.25mm, 0.3, 0.35, 0.4mm, 0.5mm, 0.55, 0.60... walls without a problem ... only between 0.4 and 0.5 you have a problem to put any size between them .. but that limit I'll survive so from 0.25mm till 0.8mm wall you can print with 1 or 2 lines or till 1.2mm with up to 3 line, no shaking, no holes, no gaps, no problems...
@gruvin, I doubt nothing is going on as I seen somewhere add that they are hiring ... I hope they are hiring developers and not management
as for thin wall, UP! from TT have a detection of thin wall but the only option you have is a check box - on/off, if it's off part is "correct in size", if it's on the part will be a bit "thicker" (can be wrong in size by the half of the wall thickness on all sides) and then it will print any wall thinner then 1 wall size with 1 wall size line
