Re: Spare parts

I have a feeling the throat tube is the most expensive part (60-70% of the price)

I ordered 3 spares because i messed up 2 extruders. But in my case i did not break the throat tube i think and i think my problem with the 2 'dead' extruders is the alu block (that they do not sell separate either)

Re: Spare parts

I do not know if you will need the brass ones once you have the plated ones the difference in heating should be only slightly worse with the plated ones (so doubt you will notice a difference). As far as i know the plated ones are not send yet (i have 4 in pre-order) so i can not tell you if they wo...

Re: Spare parts

I had some messups with my extruder so i ordered a few to have spare parts on that. (sadly destroyed 2 before i got the hang of it) Other than that i ordered a few of the small fans since they tend to die now and then or get very noisy when they start to wear. And of course i got 4 extra nozzles and...

Re: Printing thin sections

Always interesting to see an internal conversation :) The reason it deletes it is because it thinks it will not be able to print it. With a 0,4 nozzle anything under 0,45mm is almost impossible to print Try to keep this in mind when designing same as the 45 degree (50 can be done too, even more if y...

Always good to see a machine in a working enviroment. And it shows how robust it is if it is still printing ;)

Re: Temperature listed on Task Completed

i name each profile for a certain model / type of model so i know what playroom i have.

Will definitely try it with that star wars tune one time when my gf is in the room (she makes star wars cosplay costumes and a lot of my prints are for her customers)

Re: Temperature listed on Task Completed

btw has to be M190 R40 with the S option it does not wait while cooling i 'should' be at 0,0 (after homing) before i set the X again Now that i am thinking about it, i might not even have to make a move if i dont need the sound as a warning the M190 R40 will keep the display active if i look and it ...

Re: Temperature listed on Task Completed

Thnx for the explanation. I already found the M190 in the reprap wiki . I decided to keep the code almost standard but just before kickback to normal mode i added M190 S40 and G1 x150 y0 setting the printhead in the front middle to signal me it is done. then G84 and M90 The reason i did it this way ...

Re: Temperature listed on Task Completed

Adding one line of Gcode to lower the bed a but more when reaching a certain temp might actually be a good idea , it is visual enough tosee and audible enough to hear when its ready to be removed. Going to hit a wiki and find me some code to add to the end code :) Thnx for the tip edit: decided to m...

Re: Temperature listed on Task Completed

With a printer able to print prints that can take up to 2 weeks to run i doubt even you have the military discipline or possibility to stay put (and awake of course) for that long. Yes i do know running unattended has risks, so is toasting my bread, running an oven and all other sources of heat/dang...

Re: Temperature listed on Task Completed

Jetguy, still need to be in front of the printer to see the fans spinning then :) Also when the hotends are below 50 it does not always mean that the heatbed is below 40 (especially when printing ABS and it was at 100 degrees) Its not something important but something i would like to be able to see ...

Temperature listed on Task Completed

I would love to have the temperature listed on the screen when a task is finished. i understand why you block the screen until someone went to the printer but some prints i have to wait until the temperature dropped below 35 - 40 degrees before i can remove it and now i have to goto the printer, cli...

You can find the profiles at: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Raise3D\ideaMaker\profile

<Username> will be the name of your account on windows. No clue where the mac version puts its profiles though

Re: prints moved on the bed so want to get the gcode off local drive

i think you can get the gcode in a few ways the easiest is probably to plug in a USB stick and Move or copy the file to the USB When in Ideamaker connect to the printer goto PRINT > Local and hit EDIT in the top right . Select Model, then COPY. Then goto the USB and paste. Have not tried it myself y...

Re: Super high resolution printing

Test cube should be solid and at 0,2 mm layer height if you want to use it for calibration 0,01 is overkill on it if you do want to print it at 0,01 with infill make sure to have 100 top and bottom layers (standard rule is to try to get 1 mm worth of plastic on top) Depending on what type of plastic...

Re: What is causing this?

the 20 mm (or even 50 mm) test cube is still the preferred model to setup X/Y and flow rate settings

Solid at 0,2 mm with 1 shell (i think jetguy made some posts on how to calibrate with the cubes)

Re: What is causing this?

Yes it is relative to the flow rate you set under the filament settings. Normally if that is set correctly you should leave all the rest at 100% of that percentage (think raise3d PLA is set at 94 or 96 or so, in the slicing profile 100% will then be that value) Temperature will also affect the flow ...

Re: What is causing this?

To have a bit less oozing i would first try to speed up the retraction (40 mm/s or so) and maybe retract a little more 1.5 mm (careful don't retract too far it might pull soft plastic into the throat tube) Lower speeds will also cause less pressure in the nozzle and thus a bit less oozing if it swit...
