Some suggestions regarding support structure display & camera control

Postby RA1981 » Thu Mar 02, 2017 6:29 pm

Hi,

as already mentioned (http://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1447), I want to make those suggestions "official" =)

Additionally, I want to suggest an option to keep the nozzle/bed temperature at a given level after the print has finished. I think it would be useful to get the print smoothly off the bed.

Regards

Do you mean keep the nozzle and bed temperature still at warm value after printing for a set time?
If refers to print removing, the bed temperature may help. But why need to keep the nozzle temperature?

Hi Vicky,

yes, keeping bed temperature for better removal of the model. For the nozzle temperature, I doubt that it's good for the nozzle to cool down completely, just to be heaten up again if a new print has to be made. So, the idea was to keep the used nozzle at e.g. 100-120°C.

Do you also have any comments regarding the other suggestions I made in the other topic?

Regards

Nozzle heating is much faster than heating bed. So that it should not be a big annoying for next time heating up.

About your another topic, sorry, I may miss it. Will check soon.

Hi Vicky,

yes, nozzle heating is fast, but I wonder if it's good for the nozzle to have hot-cool-hot-... cycles. Keeping the nozzle on a "mid-temperature" might increase the lifetime.

About this I would wonder if always keeping plastic inside at half molten state is good or not.
Not a specialist about high polymer chemistry. Just a guess.

if you keep the filament molten heat will eventually creep up into the isolation tube and make a real mess

Hi Vicky & walshlg,

good hint, didn't think about creeping filament.

..not to mention the general deterioration of the plastics itself! Specially if you keep it over the TG temperature. No good!

yeh I just had to do a complete tear down for an isolation tube clog. Not fun. Caused by bad filament breaking so sitting cooking in hotend all night!! So I give you experimental proof that leaving the hotend on is a BAD idea!
