Re: Wipe wall and tower - more control

The main things I'd like to control:

- Flow multiplier control on each extruder for the ENTIRE wipe tower
- Flow multiplier and width control of the first layer of the wipe tower
- Ability to add a brim

Wipe wall and tower - more control

Hi, I would love to have more control over the wipe wall and towers. Specifically, flow rate, extrusion width and first layer controls. This would allow us to fine tune adhesion between dissimilar materials and would make the reliability of the ooze tower way better without having to make it annoyin...

Re: Filament sensor on Raise3d E2

For all I can tell, it's a fairly opaque "natural" cream color. It might be slightly opaque at a material level though.

I think the sensor just isn't calibrated very well for colors like this.

Re: Nylon Spectrum PA6 CF15 & Raise3D Pro2 Plus

I have one of those for storing dry filament but that won't actively pull moisture out if wet filament. You need to use heat. Most people use a food dehydrator or you can throw it in the oven. I have a unit from printdry. I dry it in there and then store and print from my eureka dry box.

Re: Nylon Spectrum PA6 CF15 & Raise3D Pro2 Plus

The surface finish you're getting looks like you need to dry the filament. For engineering materials you always, always need to dry your filament before use, even if they are new and vacuumed sealed. The only brands that I've seen good results out of the box without drying, are ones that are packed ...

The sensor does not work with polymaker natural coPA either.

Re: Elephant Foot - anything new?

You can add a per layer setting just for the first layer and use the x and y compensation to fix this. This is what I do to eliminate elephant foot.

Re: Soluble support material completely unusable

I print in BVOH very often. Make sure it's really dried out properly. I've had it jammed when it wasn't dry. Always seems to work well for me.

What temp are you printing at?

You might also want to check to see if the extruder gear tension is too high and grinding excessively during retractions.

Different shell number for top solid fill

I'd like to specify a different number of perimeter shells, but only for the top solid fill. I have a vacuum forming mold that needs lots of perimeter shells to stay strong, but the large number of perimeter shells leaves an ugly top surface, especially around vent holes. Ideally, I'd like the top s...

Re: New hardened nozzle

I know about the brozzl, but the shipping cost to canada is more than the nozzle itself so I'm looking for alternatives.

New hardened nozzle

Has anyone bought one of these? Looks like Raise3D is making a tool steel nozzle:

Re: IdeaMaker feature requests

I have a feature request for supports.

It would be great if I could click-drag to delete multiple supports rather than having to click on each pillar individually.

Re: Elephants foot compensation

It looks like I'm able to achieve this by using the "per-layer" settings for the first layer along with XY compensation. Testing that now.

Elephants foot compensation

I know prusa slicer has a compensation mechanism for this.

Does ideamaker have a setting to compensate for elephants foot caused by squishing of the first layer for adhesion to the build surface?

If not, can that be added to the feature request list?

Re: Probe not stopping Z travel or home

Yes what Steven recommended is exactly what I did.

I also started a homing command at a high Z height and manually triggered the sensor buy pushing it. Sometimes it would work, other times if I wiggle the cable it wouldn't.
