display error

noticed that the print progress display picture is tilted still. For example this is actually flat on the build plate:

Re: ideaMaker 3.1.0 Release Note

please do. Very useful for things like looking at print traces around holes for press inserts and checking for problems when there are gaps around edges of these inserts

Re: ideaMaker 3.1.0 Release Note

yes but that is a mistake. I want to see each trace independently when things aren't printing as expected. We need that functionality. BTW it's in every other slicer I've worked with.

Re: ideaMaker 3.1.0 Release Note

print preview in 2d is now a problem. it no longer clearly shows the traces, instead, it merges the lines into a big white mass. Please go back to where we can see the print lines in 2d mode

Re: I’ve bought thermal insulation sheets and kapton tape. Now what?

I usually use 1 wrap. I also use 2 strips so that there is a sleeve that hangs out over the end you can cut the edges and fold it up and tape it like a present'

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??

found the link - turns out it was glass fiber laminate but looks like they are out of stock for N2.

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.

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.
