Re: Simplify3D M2 Dual - Single Extruder Issue

I'm not sure how much this will help as I use Slic3r, but I can set an extruder offset. The offset for the second extruder is 31.1mm on the X axis (I forget + or - since it's been a while since I upgraded to dual). I think it's normally handled by the firmware but you may have to compensate for it u...

Re: Accessing Octoprint

You're changing the port so check your /etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg file. You'll probably have to add the different port there. I'm just using the standard 8080 so this is the binding section from mine: [...] frontend public bind *:80 use_backend webcam if { path_beg /webcam/ } default_backend octoprint...

Re: IDeas/Help designing Stone/brick veneer

OpenSCAD has a Surface function that may be of interest. I just did a quick Google image search for "brick heightmap" Obviously not the ideal map but just as a starting point to give you an idea: surface(file="brick.png", center=true, convexity=5); %translate([0,0,2]) cube([100,100,1], center=true);...

Re: Printing with Right head, T1

[...]but in octoprint, im assuming the left hottend temp is being displayed, i have no control over the Right Hotend. I'm being Captain Obvious here, but did you set the number of extruders to 2 in the Octoprint printer profile? dual-extuders.PNG You should see both extruders in the Control tab: du...

Try a hair dryer or heat gun. Works a treat on PETg where stringiness is a problem for some prints.

Re: Do I need the bed factory applied Kapton for PLA?

Would you mind describing how you put down the film without bubbles? I can see that you use a piece of dowel rod to stretch out the filament between the roll and the near edge of the jig, but then what do you do to smooth out the film on the glass? The glass gets a spritz of distilled water with a ...

Re: MAKERGEAR M3-ID reviews

Is the tape necessary for the prints? It's scraped in 3 places right now...Is the tape essential, can we take it off? Consider the tape a consumable. Some people have success with bare glass and some sort of adhesive but I've had many successful prints with the Kapton. I've since switched to one of...

Re: second extruder not working properly

You might want to make sure you have the connector plugged in correctly...which is reversed compared to extruder 0. If you don't, extruder 1 will retract instead of extrude (because they feed from different sides of the gear). I had a similar problem when I installed my dual kit. Here's a picture of...

Re: octoprint and reprap graphic controller (the makergear o

[...]turning on the bed heater with the LCD and then trying to run a print with the Octopi Pi3. I just printed a calibration cube by setting the nozzle and bed temps with the LCD then starting the print via OctoPrint and I didn't have any issues. Is it a consistent error? Maybe a bad USB cable or c...

Re: octoprint and reprap graphic controller (the makergear o

How are you running OctoPrint?

I have a couple OctoPrint plugins that send info to the LCD so they definitely work together. I'm running a dedicated OctoPi on a Raspberry Pi 3 though.
