Re: Nozzle drags on raft

I have noticed the same problem both on the raft and solid fill surfaces. The nozzle will drag right across the surface regardless of the settings I am using. Is there a way that we can ensure that ALL non-extruding travel executes a retraction and z-hop?

Re: Polymaker PC-Max woes

Dense layers may help. What is your setting for "Vertical Offset Top Layers" under Support? You might also try reducing that to 1 or 0 if dense support layers don't help. It might make the supports harder to remove, though (thereby resulting in slightly grosser surface finish).

Re: Polymaker PC-Max woes

I do a good amount of printing with PC-Max and get good results with it. That being said, however, I only ever do single nozzle printing. I long ago gave up on dual nozzle prints and removed the second nozzle and extruder from my machine entirely. I've found that with the right settings I can get a ...

Re: Round Surface Not Smooth

When you go to create the stl file in Solidworks, click on "Options" in the Save As dialog. Then you can adjust the resolution. "Deviation" should be the variable you are looking for.

Re: Better time counter

The time it takes to preheat the bed and nozzle is always going to vary depending on ambient conditions and such, so why even bother including it in the time counter at all? I think the timer should only include actual printing time.

Re: Dense Support Layer Gap Setting?

Ok, so that applies to the "dense" support as well, then? I suppose that makes sense. Thanks.

Dense Support Layer Gap Setting?

I have had excellent results in IdeaMaker when I've needed to print with a raft by adjusting the "Raft Gap from Model" setting under the Platform Additions tab in print settings. What I'm wondering is whether there is a way to implement a similar gap for the "Dense Support Layers"...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

Well then im at a loss to explain the difference but I do agree with Jetguy that the hotend is probably not running hotter then requested. The photo shows a part that didn't have time to cool down between layers not necessarily extruded too hot to start with. turn on the berd and see what happens. ...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

3 things I think that affect your results are: #1 copper nozzle does put more heat into the filament than your previous Rais3D nozzle (coated or uncoated brass) #2 the shape and total height of an E3D nozzle is different than the pointy long cone tip of a Raise3D nozzle. #3 the E3D tip also has a f...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

So here is what I think is happening based on what's been said so far. correct me if this is not correct On the stock R3D fan setup layer cooling is always on. With your current setup it is now optional and off. This would explain the differences you are seeing. BTW layer cooling with ABS can be be...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

I did. I designed a new fan duct for your adapter that mounts to a 40mm fan. I put the .stl file here if you are interested.

I'm also setting up the Berd Air system, but haven't tested it yet, as I haven't run any filament that requires layer cooling yet.

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

Ah, so based on the photo I would do two things to improve that particular part. Add a brim and, because of its size, print two or more at the same time this way they have time to cool between layers. That makes sense, but my concern was based mainly on the fact that this issue never occurred with ...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

When you used the E3D thermocouple, did you use the whole wire length or shorten it? You can shorten it and I highly recommend that. In addition, I also recommend using heatshrink over even the individual wires at the screw terminal junction because the fiberglass woven insulation can and will unra...

What does way to hot look like? Run a temp ladder and see what temp gives the best result. let me know if you unaware of this procedure. Oh, just had a thought and assuming you dont have a way to measure the heater temps externally, With the heater off and cooled down to room temp note the temp The...

I didn't realize the Cicoil cables require a special connector.
