Re: ideaMaker settings for supported areas

certainly you are right that there will be more divisions of the model. but also at the moment it can happen that there are a lot of divisions, if you an object with lots of overhangs and bridges. its "just" one more instance of properties for ideamaker. certainly it is a lot of programmin...

Re: ideaMaker settings for supported areas

Thanks a lot, sounds great and promising. I know that it is not trivial, because currently iM doesn‘t have to make a difference between supported or free hanging areas. Currently a bottom surface changes its optical appearance only because of the fact that there is „something“ close enough to lay on...

Re: ideaMaker settings for supported areas

Yes, Vicky, that's what I mean: Different settings for supported areas and areas without support. It is quite obvious that e.g. a "real" bridge needs completely other parameters than a "supported bridge", where the filament needs more time to be (slightly) squeezed on top of the ...

Re: Magnetic Flex Bed for Pro2

The flex bed gives you a relatively simple possibility to level your bed properly. I built my own flexbed with the following parts: a very strong neodym foil: https://www.magnet-shop.net/magnetband/magnetband-neodym/neodym-power-magnetfolie-1-5-mm-stark-selbstklebend?number=NMF-297x210x1.5-sk and a ...

Re: ideaMaker settings for supported areas

As far as i know there ARE settings for support speed and flowrate, as you mentioned. But no special setting for supportED areas. So what i meant is not the support itself, but the area above the support. Certainly you can tweak a little with overhang and bridge settings, but they should be left for...

ideaMaker settings for supported areas

I really tried hard, but the setting possibilities for areas printed above supports is not ideal. As everybody knows it is impossible getting the same surface quality as printed on solid surfaces (build plate). That‘s why its even more important having good control over all possible parameters. Curr...

Re: Questioning Pro2 Product Quality - Ongoing Issues

The is no significant difference between two or one hotend water cooled. I had this solution for month exactly with the same offsets measured on the build plate. and its clear as the weight of the additional cooling is nothing compared to the total weight of the two steppers, the extruder gears, bea...

Re: Need less distance between dense support layers and print.

I'm waiting for this feature, too. I have other requests concerning the layer above the dense support: For getting a smooth surface above the dense support there already are some changeable settings, eg. bottom surface flowrate and extrusion width. the problem: what about shells in the same area? if...

Re: Questioning Pro2 Product Quality - Ongoing Issues

hi Dirk, Don't be shy - water cooling is a two days work and its worth it - no more clogging after many hundreds of high temp prints with closed lid:-) the second main problem with the uneven plate is more a problem of the lagging gantry because of the weight of the dual extruder. exchanging the bed...

Re: Asking for advice: E2 or pro2?

Read about all the issues of these printers carefully in the forum! I have a Pro2 and would never buy it again: The gantry las 0,25mm in the middle of the plate, and no auto-levelling. Closed source and no possibility to change software issues. Very bad hotend cooling. You can't do long time hight t...

Re: .idea files don't contain Printer, Extruder, or Template information

I asked the same question in a separate thread.
I am totally of your opinion! It’s a MUST having stable settings everytime i reuse an .idea - file. Until now a made a manual notice in notepad with the correct template for every idea-file. Stoneage:-))

Saving used template with .idea file?

Hi, My workflow: I create a new .idea file, import a model, select a template (which is related to selected profile of the left extruder). After closing the idea-file and reopening it I normally change small settings either on the imported model or on the template I formerly used together with this ...

Hi, When my left nozzle starts printing at the wipe tower after a nozzle switch, there is far too much filament coming out the nozzle. I tried different settings for retraction and also "Extra Restart Amount of Extruder Switch" (negtive and positive values), but i cannot get rid of this ov...

Re: First layer lifting

I agree that z-offset is a topic here, too and will be the solution together with the adjusted flowrate. please don't talk too much about bed leveling as we all know that it is not possible to get rid of the gantry lag in the middle of the printer. at the point where you spent dozens of hours with l...

Re: Prints don't finish properly

Re: First layer lifting

Lowering the nozzle CAN be a solution, but in this case i would recommend slightly raising the flowrate. as you can see in the image, there even is a gap between the traces in the region, where they overlap with the shell. if it was a problem of z-calibration, there should be less gaps in this area ...

Re: Heated Bed - Time to Temperature

Best solution: Change the printing bed according to the step-by-step guide of Markus64:

The heater is glued to the al-plate, and there is insulation below. Besides the better bed leveling it leads to dramatically shorter heating times...
