Re: Visualisation origin move

May I suggest: Make a model of a ring that encompasses your delta print volume. Place that on the ideamaker build plate first, then place the things you really want to print inside it. last, delete the ring before slicing

Re: Carbon Fiber Print surface??

Interesting finding: The manufacturer is waiting for new boards and rec that I sanded the boards with fine grit. I sanded with 800 and 16oo grit and white flakes started coming off the plate - My guess is that the hairspray is contaminated with some heavy wax that you can't easily wash off. It accum...

Re: Print Misalignment

I believe the picture shows the problem: you most likely had head strikes from edge curl. This can happen with any filament but is most common with PLA and slanted walls. To prevent it: make sure fan is full on (uncovered) and insulate your hotend.

Re: Carbon Fiber Print surface??

they got back to me and they are on order but they don't know when the new ones come in BUT I have not tried to recondition the board -> need to get after it with 1200 grit sand paper under water!

Re: Carbon Fiber Print surface??

found the link - turns out it was glass fiber laminate but looks like they are out of stock for N2.
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=812

What other surfaces are you using?? I drop the plate every now and then so would like to avoid glass !

total print time reporting

It woud be very helpful to know how long it ACTUALLY took to print something. I understand that there is no feedback from the motion board BUT you could time from the start of loading gcode until the temperature drops.

looking at your design, a simple balloon may do the job

Re: PLA & BVOH?

you may be suffering from a head strike because of edge curl. You can get that on any filament, especially bad with PLA. i suggest insulating your hotends.

arrows to grab when moving an object

when I go to move an object on the plate its usually to get room for adding another object so I want to leave alone and move in x,y only.

but there are no arrows to grab and move the geometry other than the arrow to move it in Z. PITA

Re: Printing a Balloon that can be inflated

good luck, I wanted to do pneumatic robotics but to get something that flexible it won't print. You may go with thinner wallls but they wont be air tight and will fail. One thought is print then coat the interior with a silicone type covering, not sure how that is done

Re: Bond Tech Extruders . Any good, whats the improvement?

20171105_172335.jpg The heads are 1/2 the weight. I tried setting speed to 200mm/sec and infill to 300mm/sec. (Actually prints about the same speed as 100mm/sec due to acceleration limits, I think). Did a torture test, 10cmx10cmx1cm 1 shell and layer box. Minimal ringing, fill had a problem but WOW...

yes afaik it is in firmware but without knowing the setting the slicer can't really predict print time very well.

Re: RINGING the electromechanical challenge

JERK- jetguy explained it to me. Jerk is the speed below which acceleration/ deceleration will NOT be applied. Acceleration - still don't understand it. Units on display are max mm/sec. not mm/sec**2. If not at max, how do you calculate how much acceleration to apply? Does the slicer know jerk and a...

Re: RINGING the electromechanical challenge

To me, it makes sense to start by measuring it. We are seeing ringing - are we all seeing the same ringing? What is the fundamental frequency of the ringing? If money was no object, the right way to measure it would be to put accelerometers all across the motion hardware (definitely agreeing with w...
