Re: M3-ID is a great hardware, but .....

I posted a functional profile for the M2 and the prusa slicer a while back. In fact I am finishing up a project and have set up one of the smaller prints to run with the Prusa slicer to compare to the S3d 4.01 as soon as the big one is done. Not saying this profile is tweaked but it works.. also the...

Re: Weird noise coming from makergear M2 printer?

To determine if it is the fan, just stop the fan with your finger or any solid object and see if the noise stops.. It will not hurt anything. I get ABS stuck in there all the time during nozzle prime.

Re: Has anyone changed the fan in their power supply?

My PS is under the enclosure and I am not sure where the inlet is, but I have air exiting the top holes at the opposite end of the case from the power cord.
Hope that helps!

Re: Petg printing problems

If what Ed said is a mystery, please tell us which nozzle size and layer height you are using and I will post a couple of models to print so you can perform the calibrations Ed is talking about. Beside the multiple possible calibrations issues, a roll of wet PETG is not going to print very well.. Is...

Re: Initial height with multiple hot ends

G28; homes everything G1 F1000 X100 Y125 Z0 ; move to center of bed at 0 height There is a more complicated process I follow to set the exact staring height but the above gives you what you want and will work as you want.

Re: stainless or brass nozzles

Brass, transfers heat much much better. I bought a stainless nozzle when I bought my M2 2 years ago, I print PETG, ABS, PLA and sometimes Nylon and have never used the stainless nozzle.. that is for stuff like carbon fiber infused composite filaments that are abrasive.

Re: IdeaMaker Profile for M2E?

Prusa slicer is slic3r. They are also actively developing it. I only played a little bit with it as I am fluent in s3d 4.01 which is doing what I need. The one thing that seemed lacking was the supports..

Re: Installing an E3D V6 today, what do I need to know?

Interested in seeing how this comes out but won't be much help. What is the advantage of this hot end over the MG? I have 4 hot ends I use regularly and a spare. Each hot end with a different nozzle .25 .35 .50 and .75. Swapping the entire hot end is not really hard and with practice can be complete...
