Re: Support type and better parameters

You need to tune your layer thickness to optimize your support. Since support separation can only be set as a number of layers, fine tuning requires you to adjust your layer thickness to find the point where support is still removable, but the separation distance is small enough to get decent integr...

Re: Pro2 Y-axis fault

Stepper motors are bloody simple. I'd be more inclined to look at the driver than the motor itself. You can do some simple debugging by swapping X & Y motor cables on the control board. If the issue stays with the Y axis, then it's either the cable or the motor. If it moves to the X axis, then i...

Re: Stops extruding mid print

Also, what speed and layer height are you running? PETG doesn't take back pressure as well as some materials. You might try slowing down or (depending on material brand), raising your nozzle temp. Hatchbox Black I'll run at 255-260C. I usually run PETG with a 0.6 or 0.8mm nozzle.

Re: Problem with flexibility

I would suggest PETG over ABS if you want a bit of flex in your part. PETG is more elastic than ABS, but still very strong. PETG is the only material where I've been able to achieve layer bond strength good enough that the part won't fracture along layer lines. PETG isn't great for application where...

Re: Heated bed after printing

I don't kill motors, so I can drop the bed manually if I want to after the print is done. I don't use ideamaker except in rare cases.

Re: Heated bed after printing

No other ideas from me - sounds odd that the M code works on other motors. Maybe @Vickie can step in here, or put in a ticket with support.

If you want to disable the steppers at the end of a print, add M18 to your end script.

Re: Gantry sag as seen by a BLTouch

The only trick I can think of with the Pro 2 is getting the lifting nozzles working, but the Duet boards are very flexible, so I would not expect it to be a big deal. I know nothing of how the lifting nozzles on the Pro2 are actuated. Other than that the board swap should be a pretty similar process...

Re: very poor quality on base radius

You're not going to achieve clean overhang of much over 60 degrees without using support. There's just nothing for the filament to sit on. Gravity sucks.

I created the file when I had my printer apart to replace the linear bearings. It is pretty close, except deep in the cavity where I was unable to take measurements or clearly see what was going on.

Thank you. Would still like a way to isolate Gap Filling for post processing.

Re: STEP-File Extruder Carrier needed

This isn't from the PRO, but the N2/N2+. Might be a start.
I replaced my control board with a Duet2 WIFI and added a BL-Touch to my printers. That's been a game changer.

Re: Four percent shrinkage with PLA?

I'm testing out IM for some parts that require precision. Printing my test part for scaling and offsets, I found I needed a LOT more offset (XY Compensation) on the inside dimensions that the outside. Printing the same part with same basic settings with S3D I don't get that kind of difference betwee...

Post-Process - Infill vs Gap Fill

Looking at moving to IdeaMaker (Beta 4.0) for some parts I'm building. I've used S3D in the past but am getting some minor artifacts in the print which I believe are slicer issues. I want to use the Post-process options to enable/disable certain features for infill and gap fill, but the TYPE comment...
