Re: How to print the part with higher revolution and better

When I was trying to print some parts, the printer sometimes goes with weird path. It sometimes print with less material and fewer lines on a layer. How can I set the software to let it print with higher density and better path? Steve, could you provide a little more detail. When you say less mater...

Re: New method for making parts stick and come off easily

Sorry to hear you are having issues. It could be the white. Ive only tested the bed up to 80 deg so not sure if you are going higher than that.

Re: New method for making parts stick and come off easily

Test003.jpg OK... so I pealed the old stuff off. (It comes off pretty easy I just had to clean up the edges with some alcohol to get rid of the little ridges that were left from the tape line.) I spray another 3-4 light coats on and let it dry all day. I set my z height almost to high this time to ...

Re: New method for making parts stick and come off easily

I saw a difference in adhesion and first layer height when I removed the kapton from the glass plate (after removal I had some corners coming up on a 3"x6" box). I releveled the bed and had no more problems. How thick is 3 coats of this stuff? Could that be affecting things? I'm still happy with Aq...

Re: New method for making parts stick and come off easily

Bummer to see that. Did you clean the surface you were spraying on to before you sprayed? I did 3 coats - fairly thickly and allowed each one to dry about 30 minutes between recoats (very warm here so quick drying to the touch). I then allowed the whole thing to set for at least 6 hours. I hope the ...

Honestly I don't know as I only had the black available. My guess is as long as its basically the same stuff the color shouldn't make any difference. Maybe I should rock the gold version they have :).

Re: New method for making parts stick and come off easily

Pretty interesting. I will have to pick up a can sometime soon. Any pics of the bed? Does it go on evenly? Ill snap a pic tonight, but yes provided you use basic spray paint technique (even sweeps from about 8 inches etc) it goes on perfectly smooth. The bottom of my prints are nice and smooth. I w...

Re: New method for making parts stick and come off easily

I've done some more testing with the limited other materials I have and they all seem to act the same. Even hatchbox woodfill, which I normally have to chisel off my build plate it sticks so well, came off with a gentle pull and that was a 3 inch by 3 inch flat square which is basically designed to ...

New method for making parts stick and come off easily

So this is going to sound strange but I saw this tip on some random board and figured I would try it. Rust-Oleum-Peel-Coat-Graphite Its basically a rubbery paint that you can spray on your print bed, I personally did one side (the non bead blasted) of my MIC6. It forms a smooth even surface that is ...

Re: build plate doesn't descend after completed print

Are you preforming your weekly/monthly maintenance? Your Z axis rods and lead screw may need cleaning/lubing. You can always add this line G1 Z195 ; drop Z axis to just above spring to your ending scrip too. (this is not an alternative to the maintenance you still need to keep up on that.) Came her...
