Re: ColorFabb BronzeFill

I have been battling with printing with BronzeFill. I have now got to the bottom of the problem and decided to write it up on my Orkney3D blog. You might find this post useful if you have others with a similar problem.

Re: Bushes required

It's OK the great guys at 3DGBIRE have sorted me out. I got the long tubes out by twisting them gently with pliers and pushing down.
Replacements parts have been ordered.

Bushes required

Not sure what these are called but I need replacement nylon bushes for my Pro2. 3DGBIRE do not list them on their web site. Any ideas?

Re: Ideamaker Print time changes

I have been using the software for nearly two years and not noticed this effect until now although if the printer runs out of filament and stops, when you restart the print time is extended massively as if the software did not account for the time taken to replace the filament. Oh well looks like I ...

PTFE bushes wanted

One of the PTFE bushes on my Raise3D Pro2 has got damaged and I can't find a replacement on the web for it, only the long tubes located above. The bushes that I need are in the head lifting unit and I don't really want to pay £300 + for a new unit. I have asked 3DGBIRE and whilst they were very help...

Define extruder for dense supports in ideaMaker

With the cost of POV it would be great to just print the dense supports in POV and the rest of the support in the main material to save costs. I believe that some other slicers do offer this. Can we have this in the next version of IdeaMaker pretty please ?

Re: Supports

I thought I would invert the job to see how the suported layer would print if not supports as it was facing up (pic2) and looks simular to the non inverted print (pic1). It looks as though the addition of supports is making the surface print with these crazy patterns (pic3). Any ideas why? I now hav...

Re: Supports

Hi crimsonyoshi could you send me a screen shot of the setting you suggest.
I am starting to dispair of getting any type of finish using supports and having to attack it with a soldering iron after the print!

Thanks
