Printing Giveaway Spinner Dual .gcode

Postby nadia.neimad » Sun Sep 30, 2018 3:03 am

Hi All,

Have just received my new Raise3D Pro2 and am having issues with printing the demo spinner using the dual extruders.

I have attached the .gcode (in zip archive) that comes with the printer on a USB stick which I am attempting to print.

As you will see from the attached images, once it gets to layer 6, step 1072 where it starts using the RIGHT extruder to print the 'spinning' component, it starts printing on an X axis that is way off.

Printing the single extruder demo .gcode works a dream.

I am also completely new to 3D printing, so I may have missed something with setting this print job up - or is it a problem with the code or the printer itself?

Any insight/help will be greatly appreciated!

Cheers

Paul

Might have wrong offset settings in touchscreen.
Would you like to go to Settings -> More Settings -> Hardware -> Extruder to check the current X Y offset.

You can start from X 25.00, Y 0.00 and calibrate those two values to be more accurate with the dual-extruder model examples in ideaMaker.

That was the answer I was after - after setting the right extruder X to 25.00 it worked perfectly!

Thank you for the quick reply

:)

I will suggest you to do a dual extruder calibration for more accurate offset values.
Normally every printer will have 0.x mm's difference.

Another beginner has just purchased a Pro2 and the thumb drive that came with it has the STL files for the two parts of the GiveawaySpinner but no IDEA, GCODE nor DATA files. Should these be with the machine? Where do I get them?

I should add that the offsets are preset on my machine to X => 25.4, Y => -0.2. I would like to check these, hence looking for the print files to do so.

Open or "add" the STL file in Ideamaker and run the slice. The GCODE and DATA files will be generated by that program.
