Bugs in IM - Mac 3.3?

After I slicing a part and uploading, I deleted that part and started a new part. After slicing the new one the window, "Estimated Print Result", which is used to preview, upload or export, still showed the previous part name(!). The wrong name persisted into the "Select Printer"...

Re: Liquid cooled heat sink for the Pro2

Kenny, I will have to think about this a bit more, but I don't feel it unreasonable to expect some compensation for the time I spent designing, building, and proving the effectiveness of water cooled heatsinks on the Pro 2. The estimated price I noted above does include a modest profit, but given th...

Re: Liquid cooled heat sink for the Pro2

News..... My colleague has worked up an estimate on manufacturing the copper liquid cooled heatsinks and has also sent out for quotes from other machine shops to see if we can get a to a lower cost. We have not committed to purchasing any quantity yet due to the relatively modest interest shown so f...

Re: Stop heating unused extruder on Pro2

Yesterday would not be soon enough. I have managed to get filament profiles configured that won't turn on the un-used extruder but it was a time consuming and frustrating process. Shouldn't be so hard.

Re: Sequential printing IM beta

It will be December 2018 soon... I really need this feature! When will IM have this? I was forced to purchase the latest S3D to deal with a part, (mulitples), that require true sequential printing. Only older versions of Cura support sequential part printing and those do not support control of layer...

Re: Custom Dry Feeder Box for the Pro2

For any who are interested in the Feeder Box for the Pro 2, I posted a video which shows the details better than the pics above. I detail what I am prepared to provide in the description under the video. https://youtu.be/-tZGnMbxGqA Based on pics I have seen, the Feeder Box may also fit the N2 serie...

Re: Multi part G Code question

Thanks very much guys.... I will take a look at Cura tomorrow. I looked at g code for a very simple part to contemplate joining several files and while feasible it is a lot of work and prone to error compared to a slicer that has the capability built in.

Multi part G Code question

A colleague and I, both with Pro 2 printers, want to create a G Code file that will allow us to print multiple instances of a small part during a single print session, but we want to print the parts sequentially, not simultaneously. For the best part aesthetics and layer bond quality, (we will be us...

Re: Liquid cooled heat sink for the Pro2

Thanks, KH-Husker. I am also considering offering a package of all the drawings and a BOM for all the bits. Everything is available from McMaster Carr, Amazon, etc.. I would probably include the drawings for the integrated feeder box as well. It is very much a part of bringing the Pro 2 to a complet...

Re: Liquid cooled heat sink for the Pro2

An update on my liquid cooling installation on the Pro 2. The new heat sinks are now installed on both hot ends. I tidied up the pump and radiator assembly from E3D and made up an extension cord receptacle box that includes a switch. The Pro 2 and the little power brick for the pump and radiator fan...

Pro 2 software extruder control - bug

I have set up my Pro2 to use the left, so called "default" extruder to use a variety of higher temp engineering grade filaments... nylon or PETG with either glass or carbon, for example. I keep the right extruder set up for PLA filaments. Let's say I want to print a small PLA part from the...

Re: Liquid cooled heat sink for the Pro2

I can report that both extruders now have the liquid cooled heatsinks and the E3D pump and radiator are hooked up. The plumbing is still a little disorganized, but the system is fully functional. I needed to get the machine printing. Have been running Max-G PETG w glass at 255C. Heat sinks remain ba...

Re: Liquid cooled heat sink for the Pro2

Hi Ken, the part is a Solid works file, which I am happy to share, or the detail drawing that a machinist can work from. PM me and we can work out the details. I finished the second heatsink and the E3D pump and radiator kit is hooked up.

Re: Solved : overheating , Jams , fail Prints , stuck Pro2

I had terrible jams using 3DX-Tech CarbonX Gen2. Also Makerbot Tough PLA. I concluded there was very poor cooling due to the inadequate heatsink - airflow combination. I designed and machined copper water cooled heatsinks and discarded the big fan. Just finished the install a few days ago. I haven't...

Re: Custom Dry Feeder Box for the Pro2

Thanks! Pics are probably fine as long as they are shot in landscape mode. I will try to remember to try that next time.
