Very nice! Will give it a try

I like the kind of way, Simplify heat up. First the bed will go up to the temperature choosen and only if heatbed is on 100% the Extruder will heat up. Normally the Extruder warm up much faster.

In the old version of Ideamaker the extruder went up first - and the the heatbed.

You could implement this also.

If i choose 5 Lines BRIM, why the Brim will not fit the outer border of the model on the whole model? You can see some strange behaviour generating the BRIM

If a 0.2 mm nozzle is used, the layer width is 0.2-0.22 mm and the part is printed with a raft, then the G-code generates a width of the first layer of 0.4 mm. It's a lot!


Currently we will recommend not printing Raft with nozzle not 0.4mm size, since the default Raft settings are designed based on 0.4mm nozzle.

Here I found a link of XY Size Compensation Test Model for you on thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2427891 which needs no measure tool to carry out a calibration for XY Size Compensation.
Inside there has an example how to do the calculation:
2mm fits into the 2.2 mm slot:

use a value of -0.05mm for XY Size Compensation (Slic3r)
calculation: (2.2-2.0)/4=-0.05 (division by 4, as both the pin and the measure will be influenced on both sides)


If you can make sure that your 0.18mm is under high accurate measurement, you can calculate under the following logic:

We assume the real size you measure out by tool of the hole is X mm.
The design size for this hole is Y mm.
The compensation will be -(X-Y)/2 mm.

Actually we heat the 2 extruders and bed together. But the firmware can only read the real temperature one by one. So that if you check the screen after the left extruder reaching to the target value, you will see the right extruder's temperature suddenly jumps a lot.

Is it possible that we can ask the .STL file of this model for testing?

I can't wait to test these updates out, especially the "change settings by height" features that I have been looking forward to! Thank you Raise3D!

Since this is a 3D accelerated application requiring proper 3D graphics support in your computer's operating system and graphics hardware driver- the most likely answer is that a driver or lack of proper accelerated graphics support in your computer is causing issues with the application. This is not just true of this application but any application you know of rendering a 3D model.

Hello Vicky

In my case, to heat up the heatbed takes around 10 minutes to 110 degrees. Extruder - i usually use only one - takes only 2 or 3 minutes. Means: While the extruder is already at 250 degree, the heatbed is still warming up. The Extruder "waits" at 250 degress while the heatbed is still coming up.

Simplify3D managed this, that the heatbed is warming up. Only if he reaches the target temperature, the extruder will start warming up.

Strange, I tried Only Brim and Raft with Brim, both set brim as 5 loops, haven't seen any similar abnormal as yours.
Have you edited any other settings related to this?

You can disable "Insert Heatup GCode Automatically in Start GCode". And input the heat code as your wish.

If only one extruder and heated bed, the current Heatup GCode is as follow:
M221 T0 S94.00
M140 S60.00
M104 T0 S205.00
M109 T0 S205.00
T0
M190 S60.00

If two extruders and heated bed, the current Heatup GCode is as follow:
M221 T0 S94.00
M221 T1 S94.00
M140 S60.00
M104 T0 S205.00
M104 T1 S215.00
M109 T0 S205.00

Would you like to export the slicing template you meet with crash problem and share with us?
If you have changed setting group, please save together.

If you have an important task to do with, we still recommend you to use the current official version 2.6.0. Quick link: ideaMaker 2.6.0 https://www.raise3d.com/pages/download


Hi Vicky
I was expecting that version 3 beta would sit alongside v2.6, but when I try to install v3.0 it wants to uninstall my previous version. If I say yes to uninstall v2.6, will it let me load v2.6 alongside v3.0 beta?

Thanks

Hello Vicky,
Is there a way to reach someone from the forum? I am trying to reach Jetguy. He seems to be very knowledgeable of the bondtech extruder and I see he was able to print ninjaflex perfectly.

Can you help me get in contact with him?

Congratulations Raise team!
Those are great improvements.

I tried changing the infill settings between Left & Right extruders but found unchanged!
Templates>Advanced Settings> Infill> Infill Extruder (All or Left or Right extruders).... Am I missing anything here?

PM'd you but I am on travel this weekend with limited access. Sorry, just bad timing.
