Re: Other brand materials setting

I have used Polymaker because it was on the list. I have had pretty good results with the PolyMax. Not so much with the PolySupport but I will keep trying.

There are only 3 profiles on the page you sited for PRO2. I know there are plans to add more but *when* will more be added?

Re: Ide

Firesped... Are you talking about the 100 mps in the Ethernet setup? I use a wireless connection. (and my connection rate is 100 mps in Ethernet anyway.) The router connection is good. I have a few wireless devices further away in the same room. I don't actually have a problem with the connection in...

Re: Ide

Thanks Shelton. I have an addition camera already too. The commands for stopping/pausing/printing are through the existing software and it doesn't provide any way of interfacing as far as I can see. Actually, I can't even get it (the remote printer connect window from IdeaMaker) to maintain the conn...

Ide

I don’t suppose there is any kind of IDE for the touch screen or control software? Or maybe some way of sending statuses to the serial port? I’d like to monitor what is going on and ask my smart speaker what the status of the print is and get it to announce when it’s done.

Re: Two Extruder PETG Problems

I just got a $35 food dehydrator and an (upside-down) 5 gallon bucket from Home Depot to put on top of it. I fully intend on cutting a hole in the top so that I have an actual flow of air from bottom to top and mount some cheapo $2 digital temperature/humidity sensors in the sides at some point but ...

Re: Two Extruder PETG Problems

I am sorry that I have not got back to this thread sooner. I wanted to include some pictures. I was having trouble with constant extrusion from 230 degrees to 250 degree. The PETG was rated for temperatures from 220 to 250 but no matter what I did both extruders leaked and oozed. I am SO glad that I...

Re: Two Extruder PETG Problems

Sorry; I must not be communicating effectively. Thank you for the replies. I have only tried PETG with the single extruders at factory PRO2 settings. They work fine at 250. There is oozing but because the single extruder is used continuously it doesn't matter. I imagine if I paused the printing for ...

Re: PETG retraction settings

Mine were at 1.5 mm and had hardly any webbing with a single extruder and PETG.
With dual extruders I have it at 2.0 mm and still have yet to avoid the oozing/webbing.

Re: Two Extruder PETG Problems

It works nicely with two extruders and PLA. I think my third print was a two color benchy with the original colors - red and white.

Well, drying the PETG rolls will force me to break open another roll of something else.
Thanks for the advice.

Re: Two Extruder PETG Problems

I appreciate your response but I don't see you saying two extruders work with PETG for you. With either exruder I can print things with PETG that look nice - even at standard settings with no temperature change. But with dual extruders I get poor results. See my pictures. Oozing/Stringing. Again, bo...

Re: Two Extruder PETG Problems

On the plus side....no clog this time. the print base looked and felt the same at 230 and 237. No appreciable difference in it's cohesion. Oh - PETG adheres to the the Builtak wonderfully and is easy to remove with a spatula. I am about ready to give up on two extruder printing with PETG for right n...

Re: Two Extruder PETG Problems

You might think that 230 is too low for PETG but that is what both filaments have as their lower temperature. As you can see in the photo I have significant oozing and stringing at that temperature. At the point when it clogged, the print was actually solid so I am not sure what about 230 was too lo...

Two Extruder PETG Problems

I am trying to print a two color benchy with Hatchbox PETG and can't seem to stop the oozing. I lowered the temperature to 230 but then I got a filament jam. When I removed the filament it had expanded to about 2.05 mm so I don't know if the filament caused the jam or the subsequent heat expanded th...

Re: Shiny New Build Plates

Someone pointed out that my last point could be read as being sarcastic. It’s not meant to be read that way. I am serious about not giving people bad information - it would wreak me if they spent money because of it.
I apologized if someone felt I was trying to be mean about it- I wasn’t.
