So, do a skirt AND a brim ? ----I hadn't thought of that. That will only take care of one extruder though, right ?

That would be good too. Type A machines' slicer did this as well. Mostly, I just want to make sure that nothing is being dragged into the print area.

Deactivate purge line at start

How do I get my printer to not run a purge string at the start of a print ? The filament I'm using has a tendancy to not get knocked off the nozzle as it moves over to the printbed to start printing so this line of filament gets dragged onto the print area and causes a bunch of problems, esp. when I...

Re: Shared Template Location

I'm coming around to where I need this myself too. I've had a Mac until very recently and moved over to a dual-boot Windows/Linux Lenovo and had to move my Ideamaker config from the Mac over to Windows 10. It took some digging, but I managed to figure it out. I still do most of my work on the Mac(mi...

Replacement exterior light fixture for a boat

This is a replacement fixture for a light on the exterior walkway of a boat. The previously one broke after a number of years of exposure to sunlight and weather. A family member asked me if I could print out a new one vs. going out and buying a replacement(which means you automatically add an extra...

Re: How to I stop PETG G stringing and jamming my Raise 3d N2 Dual with Dual Bondtech?

I downloaded your model and loaded it into Ideamaker and have some thoughts. First, I'd flip it 180 degrees so that you have the larger, non-spiky bits facing down and in contact with the buildplate. Ideamaker estimates it'll take 11 hours that way vs. 10 in your current orientation. That's not a hu...

Prefix/Postfix for filenames

It would be helpful if there were a way to set a prefix or postfix string to attach to an uploaded/exported gcode file. For example, right now, as part of my workflow, I always add "<filament_type>-<nozzletemp>-<extruder>" to the end of .gcode files I upload to my printer. So, under this s...

Here's the B part of the replacement Electronics Box Cover from Thingiverse with everything dialed in for PETG. It's prints like this that make a lot of the arguing and tweaking and screwdriver/knob-twisting worth it, especially when the print turns out like this on the first try. I'm really quite p...

FYI: MagicGoo has a half-life

I bought a bottle of Magicgoo from Matterhackers a month or two ago because it was on sale and I was getting tired of mixing up ABS slurry and dealing with the acetone-meets-ABS fumes in the process. Good news: It works! Even for ABS, even for ASA, PETG, PLA, the whole lot. It actually does what it ...

Re: Silicone Hot End Covers anyone tried these?

I have them on my printer and like them. Keeps the hot end cleaner. And it does heat up a bit faster. I've had them for about a week now myself and they definitely keep the temperature more stable. Heat up faster ?---Mmmmaybe, yeah, sure, I'll give you that. The only downside I've seen so far is th...

Re: How tight do you make the Bondtech Spring Bolts?

Thanks and how would flexible filaments differ like ninjaflex? As Ninjaflex TPE is super-stretchy and needs to be basically be dragged kicking and screaming into the hot-end, you need to crank down more. It's been a while since I've printed flexible things, but I seem to recall something like tight...

Re: How tight do you make the Bondtech Spring Bolts?

What's worked for me over the past 10 months or so is this: With no filament loaded and the "latch" closed, turn the spring screw until you get solid, finger-tight resistance, but don't push it. From there, back off 2 whole turns. Load the (non-flexible) filament of you choice and print a ...

Re: Raising the standard cover

It is a suction head that is installed close to the nozzle to suck and filter gases from 3D printing. The hose needs to go through the enclosure because the large roundish filter thing will not fit inside the printer. I used to have my N2 in a closet outside the house when I lived in Puerto Rico.
