Re: Need Flexible Filament advice

Because the MakerGear extruder drive uses only one gear and a bearing. The if you make it tight enough to pull the filament it crushes and jams. Gravity Feed allow it to work with very little tension between the gear and bearing.

Re: Printing with Ninjaflex?

yes the space between where the filament exits the house above the bearing and where it re-enters is much closer. The diameter of the hole is also just slightly larger than 1.75 and I just cleaned it up with a 1.75mm drill bit and did not open it up to 2mm like the factory housing. This could cause ...

Re: For Ninjaflex 1.75mm which parameters do I need to set?

You need a .5 nozzle, you need to fabricate a gravity feed system for the spool, using a bearing , you need this extruder housing https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2371851, very little to no retraction, print speed of 8-12mms, a very simple model, and the most important is a very large amount of pat...

Re: Printing with Ninjaflex?

This housing worked much better than the stock if you don't want to re-engineer the entire extruder

Re: command to send bed to print first layer

Take this with a grain of salt as I don't understand what you mean about the spider .. and stops etc From what I read after a quick google the below should move T0 extruder to home and then center of build plate at 0 (starting height) where you can mechanical adjust your starting height with a felle...

Re: command to send bed to print first layer

I gave up on the app after a couple weeks and asked support for the process of altering the Z height within the firmware. This is the info they sent me, I have been doing this so long It is just second nature but I still had this in some notes. When you get to step 3 make sure you copy all data retu...

Re: bubbles in PETG prints?

Just spent the morning trying to eliminate what seems to be steam creator blowing out of the wall on a larger single wall print using eSun PETG. There were several issues including printing too hot for the speed at which I was printing the part. I am also using a .75 nozzle, .8 EW and .5 Layer heigh...

Re: Prusaslicer 2.x

Yes mine is Revision E. Like I said, this is just as complicated as S3D but also looks very much the same once you start looking at the settings.. There are 3 set of settings, the printer, the filament and the print.. will take a bit to remember where everything is but not that long.. I am fairly su...

Prusaslicer 2.x

After the last upgrade or S3D which I did not install and there lack of any real progress, I have started looking at Prusaslicer which was branched from Slic3r and developed by pruas for there machines. It is still open source and very much like S3D. Their branch as been converted from perl to C so ...

Re: Filament Drive Pinion gear slipping on shaft

CA is holding, but have not had anything jam, just printing little 2 walled squares playing with Prusaslicer 2.1.1 which seem like it will be the software to use in the coming year(s) Liking the results better than simplified 3D ver 4.01.. Not sure that S3D has much of a future.. seems like they wer...
