Dual

I installed the dual upgrade on my M2 sometime back. It has worked well when I used it in the past. Currently I am trying to use it in a different way and am not sure how to go about it. I have two models both approximately 1mm tall. I can position them directly over each other in Simplify3d and rai...

Re: Dual Offset

I figured it out. Apparently I messed up a setting in Octopi. It pertained to the offset for the dual extruder. I matched what the default Makergear Dual profile had (-31.10). Apparently that was incorrect and it should be 31.1. My current settings are below. The other item I noticed is that the jog...

Octopi Issue

My Octopi setup seems to be working OK now with one exception. When it goes to begin the skirt the movements are very jerky and slow. It happens on every print but seems more noticeable on one that has a lot of curves. Once the skirt is complete the remainder of the print seems to act more normal. L...

Re: Dual Offset

I am still struggling with this. When using Simplify3D it is pretty close when it actually prints for both extruders. I am trying to get use to using Octoprint currently. I am just about to a point I can use it to my satisfaction. It seems like it doesn't use the same parameters as Simplify as it pr...

Re: Simplify3D + Windows 10 USB Issues

Did you change any settings for the camera?

Re: Simplify3D + Windows 10 USB Issues

Thanks. I was just reading the other thread where the octopi is covered. I am not sure why I am getting jerky movements. There is clearly something not quite right. I have been slicing in Simplify and transferring to the pi. Do you have a camera setup? I am thinking that might be the issue. I tried ...

Re: Simplify3D + Windows 10 USB Issues

Would you mind attaching a screen shot of your M2 settings in octopi? I am not sure why I am having issues. Maybe the octoprint.txt too, have you made changes?

Simplify3D + Windows 10 USB Issues

I have read several posts regarding the pausing that happens printing over USB on a machine running Windows 10. Has there ever been a solution? I like Simplify3D and the progress previews it has while printing over usb and would like to continue using it that way however the pausing is definitely an...

Dual Offset

I am trying to make it so when I print a single item with one extruder it will print directly in the center of the build plate. Originally I was being thrown off by SImpllify3D and the way it displays it. I see several locations where there are offset settings but not sure how to get it the way I wa...

Re: Dual Ready?

Last one, I promise.... I must say I was not expecting the dual to be able to print out like it is, particularly with so little effort. Many examples of dual color printing if have seen around the web (not printed on a MakerGear) are very poor which was part of the reason I waited to install. My dau...
