Re: Not reaching temperature

i wouldn't trust that sensor anymore. If you know things changed with just losen the screw a bit, that's asking for a desaster to happen sooner or later. If i'd be in your shoes, i'd replace that sensor asap.

Re: Feature request for internal support or infill when needed.

Sorry, i have a print to prepare and just about an hour time left right now.

Just poke around and take a look at the options which are offered, it's pretty much self explaning.

Re: ideaMaker 3.1.0 Release Note

Do you mean the software increase solid layer quantity automatically after user editing the layer thickness? Yes, that's what was meant. I stumbled over the wohle thing myself. Printing at general 0.25 layer height, i gave the part 3 bottom and 3 top layers. Then i changed the layer height from z0 ...

Re: Feature request for internal support or infill when needed.

.... Like 10% infill to layer X. And 40% for the rest. ... I found out, Ideamaker does this already in the "per Layer settings". Unfortunately, it's a kinda hidden gem, and one has to remember there was part with "special" settings, but overall this secret weapon is a very might...

Re: PETG Settings

As i said, i print on a white 1mm PEI/Aluminium Plate. Works just fine with ABS and almost everything else, never had an issue. I use the clamps as they came with the printer and similiar.

Re: Clips for the glass plate that Never interfere with the nozzle

Or you just place them just around the corner on the left and right edges of the build plate ?

If you feel more comfortable having one at the front edge also, just place that one a tad right of the middle ?

Re: N1 Upgrade

A pic won't show much of this upgrade, one can barely see the actual parts, because i printed everything in silver/light gray ABS. The bucket disappears nearly complete behind the big z-axis bracket. I'll see if i can snap a pic viewing from the top after homing z-axis.

Re: PETG Settings

Excuse my Ignorance, but why do i want to stick PEI onto glass ? Yes, i get the fact the glass is a stable, rigid and a good flat surface to print on, but, on the other hand, i print directly on a 1mm PEI sheet sitting on the Aluminium bed. When the print is finished and i'm around, i just unclip th...

Re: Feature request for internal support or infill when needed.

I don't know if my findings qualify as a feature, but i saw the other day, when printing the kobayashi maru fidget cube (found on thingiverse), the Infill is not created by looking at each individual part of this cube, but it is a global pattern which seem to be layed across the outer boundaries and...

Re: PETG Settings

As is read in another the other day, Ideamaker uses Z 0,5 mm for the first layer of the Raft.

One could come to the conclusion, if your print doesn't hold with 0,3, but the Raft (if you use Ideamaker) sticks at 0,5mm, you're raftless print starts too close ...

Re: PETG Settings

So, you actual distance between nozzle and surface is 0,15 mm ? Sounds a bit close for me, but if you can make it happen with a Raft, hey, whatever it takes ... Garolite is the the "go-to" surface for Nylon. Markforged uses this as standard print surface and it obviously works. Garolite is...

Does Z- 0.150 mean you're printing at an absolute distance of standard 0.2-0.15 = 0.05 mm between nozzle and build plate ?

Re: PETG Settings

Maybe a different build plate ? I.e. i wanted to try printing PA12 Nylon. I read it should work with the BuildTak, but i had no luck. Garolite should work fine they said, but i couldn't get it at the time. So, i walked into the next hardware store and looked out for something to print on. I came out...

Re: New Acceleration and Jerk settings

Or do I have to calibrate the values? And if so how? It's not the sort of thing that has one right answer. Speed, acceleration, and jerk have a big impact on build times, part quality and appearance. You need to find the balance point for your prints and what's most important to you. For me it's be...

Re: Feature Request: faster way to position extruders manually

Mine is a bit the same. Try pressing the button a bit above the your target area, maybe 6 or 8 pixels, and it works most of the time.

There was a request for Screen Calibration here, didn't come with last Displayfrimware-Update.
