Re: Ideamaker on a delta

Interesting idea but the 0, 0 is always bottom left corner, what we need is a 0,0 to be in the middle of the bed.

Visualisation origin move

I think its possible to use ideamaker as it is to print to delta printers. Still testing Only one thing that would help greatly would be to have an option just in the visualisation to place the origin in the middle of the bed (maybe in some way using the x and y offset. So when its sliced the model ...

Re: Ideamaker on a delta

It seems like if in the visuals of ideamaker if it could have the option to move the visual origin to the middle,
then it would work for delta printers well. ?

A round build plate would be nice in the visuals but its not really necessary.

Re: Ideamaker on a delta

So I was playing around, and ended up at the same place as you, I worked out the negative offsets produced gcode and compared the cgode with a slicer that works for a delta. and the values are looking ok. With the start and end gcode in theory this is all good. Now if I load the ideamaker gcode into...

I will be working on this over Christmas even if I have to add gcode post processors to sort it out.

Ideamaker on a delta

I really want to use ideamaker on all my printers, and I have an anycubic kossel delta on the way.

Can I set it up to work with this, is it just the 0,0 centre of the bed and the start gcode that I can fix

Or is there something fundamental I the gcode that is different for deltas?

Re: Daedric Armour

I think its more about intuitive positioning based on how I know my printer performs, I know it's bridging and overhang capability so I can get away with a lot less support than normal. I can change width and angle of auto support but its applied evenly over the model that meets the criteria and i d...

Tuned Generic PLA Settings

Just updated this morning my latest Ideamaker profile for PLA filaments. Everything is tuned, supports, cooling, first layers etc. The only thing needed to change per filament is retraction distance, layer height and nozzle temperature. Can be used as a basis for your own profiles if you like. https...

Re: Daedric Armour

I didn't know that, but I only ever use manual support as I want the minimum support in the exact places I need, and this is never what the auto sliced support gives me.

Re: Daedric Armour

So some pics of the support I used, I am experimenting is heavily under extruding just the supports at 90% makes them eaiser to remove. Also 2 layers of horizontal offset and 1 layer vertical offset. https://dl.dropbox.com/s/lxn7l7y57zc4nz7/1509702765167.jpg https://dl.dropbox.com/s/4pgyayh0kfcl2pu/...

If you have saved any picture before support removed that will be really interesting to see the difference.
By the way, if you'd like to share more tips about post process, that will be really helpful.


Yes I gave a few support pics will post later

My profile share for PLA

I have profiles for each filament i use and calibrate them for all areas like bridging, retraction, supports, fills and speed.

Here is one of my PLA profiles if its of interest as a basis to start from.

Minor features defaults options

Just for convenience it would be great for the new beta to either have an option to set the default slicer view when it starts up like speed or features, or remember the one you used last time.

Also an option in the preferences to disable the generation of the .data file on export.
