Re: Bottom Surface Flowrate

It's been a year but I haven't forgotten. Don't ask me what I have done - it's been an evolutionary process and it's taken (almost) evolutionary time but I have finally reached a stage where the surface printed on Support is acceptable. It might not be perfect but it is, at least, acceptable. IMG_20...

That works fine. No more dollop of rubbish catching on the nozzles and mucking up the actual print. ;) :) :D

Does your gCode purge BOTH nozzles?
Do you mind sharing it?
Thanks :)

Re: Precise printing thickness (print height)

Again, you have 3 basic errors or variables: First layer nozzle to bed mechanical gap- something you can adjust and correct. I mentioned that I had adjusted my gap clearance from 0.2mm to 0.28 mm to fix a model adhesion problem. You said to adjust the first layer flowrate rather than the clearance....

Re: Precise printing thickness (print height)

Now, does the SOFTWARE making the gcode or the homed position in firmware take amount for this mechanical and logical offset? Answer is NO!!! No, the home command simply marries up the I AM HERE coordinate in firmware memory to 0mm when you home. Orrite! I said before that the Homed clearance of th...

Re: ideaMaker unstable

This time I installed the new version.
Opened ideaMaker; opened AP-04-013.idea; try to move model with cursor; NO CRASH! :)
Tried rotating; NO CRASH! :) :D
Seems to work. :) :D :lol:

I'll let you know if there are any more problems.

Re: ideaMaker unstable

Just downloaded and installed the new version. Turns out that I had that version. This time I made sure that I installed the new C++ file as well.

Unfortunately, same problem. Opened ideaMaker; opened AP-04-013.idea; try to move model with cursor; Crash!

Re: Precise printing thickness (print height)

Let's look at this another way.

My printed (corrected model) gives these results:
210604 Layer Errors.png

Take the top line: the actual height of the object is 3.505mm composed of 5 layers. Layer thickness is set at 0.64mm. 5x0.64=3.2.

What would cause the discrepancy of 0.305mm?

Re: Precise printing thickness (print height)

A few spare minutes and I had a look at the first error type. My print nozzle clearance is reset from ).2mm (recommended) to 0.28mm to fix an over-adhesion problem. I adjusted my First Layer Height from 0.64mm to 0.72mm to allow for this then reprinted the test piece. This gave these results 210526 ...

Precise printing thickness (print height)

How does ideaMaker deal with the issue of printing a specified model thickness (printing height)? I use 0.8mm nozzles with a designated layer thickness of 0.64mm. Obviously (or so I thought) this means that the depth of material deposited on the print bed must be in increments of 0.64mm. Well ... th...

In a previous thread ( https://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=21300#p59361 ) I was advised to make objects in parts which can then be glued together. Currently, I am following this advice in a new project and I have encountered a new problem, that of gluing parts together. Like most peopl...

That's the problem I identified. Until I get fluent in gCode I'll leave that can of worms completely alone. :?

gCode Flavour

What 'Flavour' of gCode is used by the Raise3D Pro2 Plus?
Some third party slicers offer choices: Marlin, RepRap, Repetier etc.
Which should I choose?
