Re: Printing QR codes

Thanks for the suggestion on this, by the way :) It's even more striking in person. The code just takes you to my website, nothing fancy. IMG_20150329_161609_nopm_.jpg Looks good. The biggest problem that I am having to work through is the scale of it all. I am trying to print a QR code that would ...

Re: Help with V4 dual extruder

Now I am having issues with Simplfy3D. MakerGear labels the left extruder as extruder 0 and the right extruder as extruder 1. S3D does the exact opposite and I have no clue why. I am thinking of reversing the wiring so it is in line with S3D. I am also having issues with the extruder stopping extrud...

Re: Help with V4 dual extruder

Got it figured out. Had to update the firmware. Had to download the Ardunio IDE and update the firmware through that. S3D still seems to label the extruders different that what MakerGear does. MG labels the left extruder as 1 and the right extruder as 0. S3D does the opposite. http://makergear.wikid...

Help with V4 dual extruder

I have everything installed. I am using Simplify 3D. Left is extruder 1, right is extruder 0 in the machine control pannel (ctrl +P). MakerGear directions label the left as 0 and the right as 1, opposite of what S3D labels it as. I updated the configuration to the Dual Extruder configuration. The is...

Re: Dual v4 Status

Will we get an email with shipping confirmation and a tracking number? Or are we in for a pleasant surprise one day when we get home from work?

Re: M2 Makeover

Looks awesome! Great work!

Any chance you have a link to that fan / shroud piece you have near the extruder? That looks awesome and exactly what I am look for for my machine.

If you don't want to give that up, I complete understand and respect that choice.

Re: Printing QR codes

No useful input from what's been already said. But check out mine :-) http://forum.makergear.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=141 Thanks for the link! I agree, having the dual extruder will make it much easier. They should be shipping by the end of the month...can't wait! Once I get my printer re-calibrated...

Re: Printing QR codes

Some of the QR code blocks did not receive a solid infill If at all possible, set the "pixel" dimensions to an even integer multiple of the thread width, so the slicer can exactly fill the space. Some slicers can do variable-width fill, but picking the right geometry helps a lot. The smallest possi...
