Re: Nonplanar printing

I would love to see non planar capabilities in ideamaker!
I use ideamaker on multiple different printers and, while true that non planar on the N2 / pro 2 designs is folly, it would be greatly useful on my other printers.

Re: Need help with extrusion on reprap firmware

The code you attached is for setting restart speed. There will be one retraction after completing the StartCode to move the print head to start print Skirt. Perhaps if I make my retract and restart speed match my firmware extruder maximum speed? A better question maybe it's, why is ideamaker able t...

Re: Need help with extrusion on reprap firmware

Hi Vicky. I gave been using IM to continue my testing of the 32 bit board. I have to manually erase the "F2400 E-3.000" And "F24000 E0.000" Lines both above and below the "start :skirt" near the beginning of the g-code. After erasing these commands in notepad++ and then...

Re: Need help with extrusion on reprap firmware

In comparing the two g code files ( one from IM , the other from s3d ) ideamaker ads "f2400 E0.0000" immediately before skirt instructions. S3d does not have that code. This is setting the speed of the extruder to 2400 mm/min if I understand correctly. Exceeding my extruders max speed of 1...

Need help with extrusion on reprap firmware

Hello community. First off, I love ideamaker! I've converted a modix big 60 printer to run on duet2 wifi and that board uses Reprap firmware. Everything is good there so far, and I have calibrated steps per mm of All the steppers. When I slice a model in ideamaker (3.4.0 I believe) It has the extrud...

Re: Best filament for motorcycle headlight - Carbon + Flex?

My two cents. Use a filled polycarbonate for the headlight surround. It has higher temp resistance than nylons do, and the filing ( likely carbon fiber) really cuts down on warp. Make sure to modify your design to allow at least some heat dissipation. For the Mount, I suggest using TPU, get a 90A Sh...

Re: Another topic about a gap

I second the recommendation for using pei as a build plate surface. I've used the same 0.40" sheet for well over 1 year on my n2+. All it ever needs is a quick light sanding, and cleaned with alcohol. https://catalog.cshyde.com/viewitems/3d-printing-materials/ultem-pei I get my pei here and it'...

Re: Clips be Gone

Or maybe just pry them up until they don't press down on the glass at all, so they can act as just stops. I take it that the glass doesn't slide on the silicone? No sir. The silicone in discussion is almost like an adhesive. It's always a little bit sticky, but not enough that it acts like a glue. ...

Re: N2 sized PEI sheet from CS Hyde

I use cs Hyde pei sheets on all my printers. No glue, spray, tape or anything else. Just lightly sanded pei. I buy the thickest possible, stick it to glass, give it a scuff with 300 grout sanding sponge and go to work. Even my 60cm x 60cm printer has a pei sheet on it. Stuff works very well. I get t...

I use Cshyde pei sheets on all my printers. They cut me one at 630mm x 630mm x 30mil Wasn't cheap, but that thing sticks well to anything except PP and with that thickness it doesn't chip, even when something is a little too stuck.

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

Yes. If you go below layer height "X" vs nozzle diameter "Y" you see poor performance. I tried 0.01 layer from a 0.4mm nozzle. PLA. Etc and it failed terribly. bad layer adhesion, awful spider web of stringing, bed adhesion problems etc. Maybe with time and testing I could get it...

Re: Sequential printing IM beta

Ok. Well, this is my opinion. The sequential printing you've given us is not what we asked for. What we wanted was as you say "print sequence" like in Cura, S3D, Slic3r. Again, in my opinion you've missed the Target here. Everything else your doing is fantastic, I love how powerful ideamak...

Re: First Post, Looking for WebCam suggestion

I use a Logitech c920 on a raspberry pi for print monitoring. It's auto focus and I've never had any issues with a print being out of focus. It's roughly 14 inches away from the center of my bed. Good picture quality and decent frame rate.

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

The only spare parts I can get for raise3d hot ends are $80 us and that's with the junk brass nozzle that I can't use (always rubbing abrasives). So your custom e3d adapter at $100 per unit isn't so much more cost that it's frightening. I'm in for 2. And I really like the idea of gaining proper part...

Re: Carbon Fiber Print surface??

Hey Walshlg
I have one of those glass fiber beds you speak of.
It's no good. Nothing sticks to it at all, so your still doing tape / glue / pei / buildtak etc.
Waste of significant cash because an aluminum sheet is ΒΌ the cost and similarly needs the tape etc.

Re: extruder pausing after retract for restart

It's an extra and effective method of preventing zits and or stringing at the end of a line of extrusion. Coast stops the extruder gears "x"mm before the end of each nozzle path movement. It lets the current pressure inside the hot end bleed out as actual extrusion into the actual model. T...
