Re: MAKERGEAR M3-ID reviews

Each extruder is supposed to purge a little off to the side and then wipe on the first layer, It did that before I installed my PEI sheet and now after calibrating a couple times it does not hit the bed close enough to wipe it off, I'm sure that is my doing. Makergear suggests in the video to use a ...

Re: How do I print a circular part?

All these years of printing parts and I have never did a calibration like that. Only checked steps on extrusion length. Guess I was just able to fumble my way through the other things to make it work. Thanks again!!!!

Re: How do I print a circular part?

Thanks ED,
I need to do that. Oh the multiplier can be changed per extruder. E0 and E1 have their own independent settings tab. I will print some hollow boxes tonight and report on the findings.

Re: How do I print a circular part?

ED, "Eliminate coast & extra-on-start, get the zits lined up, adjust the retraction until it's pretty good, then fine-tune with coast & extra." sorry not sure how to quote your quote from the post, I got the zits lined up, I will try the coast and extra as you stated. "Although I don't use S3D and d...

Re: How do I print a circular part?

I have attached some pics and the two stl files. I am using a .035 nozzle with a .4 width at .2 layer height. I also tried .25 layer to get a faster print with a .42 with and a .45 layer. I skinnier of the two models (the one with the cut out in it) Is two walls thick and with the fill gaps I can ge...

Re: How do I print a circular part?

I will get some pictures and figure out how to upload the stl file. I was thinking this morning maybe S3D is seeing the model differently than matterhackers slicer is or something. I originally drew the part in solidworks. Maybe I could import it into fusion and make another mesh.... I'll get back t...

How do I print a circular part?

Just received my M3-ID Dec 23rd. It has been running PLA nonstop since I got it. I purchased it because I could run the parts I sell at twice the speed using the duplication mode. This is my second printer, my first being a seemecnc rostock max V1. I have many hours on it, but it has it's issues and...

Re: thoughts on new M3 I dual

Yes they both do the wipe move. Although I have installed a PEI sheet and nothing gets wiped off anymore. Probably due to my nozzle height setting. Thinking of building a actual wipe brush setup. But it has not been a problem so far. I got my ID on the 23rd and it has been running non stop ever sinc...

Re: RasPi camera for M3-ID

I do not think that is going to work. My ID is running right now, but it looks like there is a endstop block and the filament feeder bracket will be in the way. So I would say as this bracket is, it will not work. I will check it out in 21 hours when my print is supposed to be done. According to oct...
