How to Bondtec settigns differ to standard and does latests Ideamaker have bondtech settings Already?

Postby Spikeysonic » Tue Sep 18, 2018 5:47 pm

Ok getting a bond tech extruder, but wondering given its supposed to be lighter, faster, stronger etc who would you change settings or adjust them from normal prints (talking all settings here). Are there new settings that take into account bondtechs in the latest ideamaker already

Thinking of :

Single extruding:


Ninja flex

PLA

Pet G

Casting Material

How much faster can you do things in PLA



Dual Extruding

Ninjaflex and a support material (any suggestions on whats best for this or supportign other tpu)

PLA + PVA

PLA + Polymaker Poly support

Pet G (and what is the best support materialto have in the second extruder)

Poly PC (and what would be a good support)

PLA and Ninja flex (think tool with soft handle)

PETg (PLus what would ne s good support)


What settigns should I do , and how would they different from standard settings.


Spell it out please as newbie here

I really didn't make any changes. Just change the steps on the extruder as specified, then minor turning the flow rate as needed for the filament (which you may be doing already).

AR_LA, did you find you needed to increase or decrease the flow rate? I made the voltage and E-step changes, but seem to be having an issue with overheating when I didn't have that before, when printing the exact same part. I'm not sure what the issue is.

d9d you wire the ribbon cable back and hot glue itbin placem You can get a free over heat protector. look in the hardware section. May be that

Are you referring to the ribbon cable that connects to the new bondtech motors? I didn't hotglue them in place, but used zip ties and they seem to be firmly attached. I do have the thermal runaway protector installed. I wouldn't think the new gears would affect the heating at all though, but can't seem to figure out why the surface quality is so much worse. When I load the filament it loads fine. I have used 0.3mm distance between the raft for all of my prints with no issues with the original extruder, and have noticed with the Bondtech the model isn't sticking to the raft as good as it used to also.

Hey, sorry, I don't seem to be getting notifications.

I have noticed I've needed to adjust my temperatures, but mostly to print hotter. I would run some calibration cubes to see if your extrusion is set right. I am running I think 97 flow rate for PLA and 94 for PETG, but almost all of my printing since the dual direct upgrade has been with carbon filled PETG and polycarbonate which have their own weird behaviors, but nothing like what you're experiencing. I have zero experience with ABS.
