Re: 3D Printed CoronaVirus Respirators

Thanks for the great information. In addition to being a 3D printing enthusiast (I own a Makergear M3 ID), I'm a physician in practice at a 1000 bed hospital with multiple patients currently admitted for COVID-19. We have an acute shortage of masks (surgical masks, N95 masks, and related PPE equipm...

Re: 3D Printed CoronaVirus Respirators

Reddit says its bogus. https://www.reddit.com/r/3Dprinting/comments/fke0oz/coronavirus_3d_printing_megathread/ I'm working with a Houston Hackerspace to print visors. They're crowd sourcing (sewing?) masks with community support that I'm assuming is like the FU Mask. They're also working on a PAPR r...

Re: Please help me figure out what is wrong with my printer

Which version of Simplify 3D are you using? I had a problem with stringing on 4 and problems went away when I reverted to 3.

Re: Simplify 4.0+ issues with M3-ID

This is where I found the reference to the problem in 4.1. I've been fighting it for over a month. YMMV

Re: Simplify 4.0+ issues with M3-ID

Thank you for posting this. I've been pulling my hair out with 4.1 and stringing. I just visited the S3D forums and its supposed to be fixed in 4.1.1. A 2 hour print job on 4.1 slices as 1:45 job when using version 3. I'm going back to version 3. BTW, I've still got each version installed on my mach...

Re: Printing with Ninjaflex?

Yes its a different setup all together. My frustration finally reached a tipping point. I alternate printing abrasives and flexibles so it was maddening at times as the printed parts would wear out.

Re: Printing with Ninjaflex?

I upgraded my M2 to a Bondtech BMG extruder and a V6 hotend. Ninjaflex prints with no problems now.
