Re: M3 Dual + Simplify 3D = Second head can't print?

There are Simplify3D profiles and factory files for the MakerGear M3ID. Check the MakerGear wiki or e-mail support. They are very helpful. I have been having a blast with mine :)

Re: PVA for support problems

Okay, status report :-) I think I finally have this working. I have done away with the prime pillar and using 3 outlines for the ooze shield. That was still giving problems because the PVA was oozing out of extruder what it waited for all the PLA to print. I again contacted Simplify3D and then gave ...

Re: PVA for support problems

Actually, I have a 1mm retraction verticle lift. Probably too much. I also contacted Simplify3D. They had some good suggestions. First, use PLA for the supports and only use PVA for the dense support just before it contacts the model. Second, don't use a prime pillar. Add a couple more layers to the...

Re: First Print on new M3 Dual

I just got the profiles for the dual printing. I'll upload pictures when I get them. The Aztec calendar was printed with the black filament that came with the printer. I painted the entire print with a dark brown/bronze and then dry brushed a metallic gold over that. Then I designed and printed a st...

First Print on new M3 Dual

Well I got my M3 Independent Dual the other day and have been having a blast with it. It is a fabulous printer. The profiles for Simplify3D are not out yet for the M3ID, but I had this highly detailed file for the Aztec Calendar. This has so much detail in it that slicing took almost an hour. The pr...
