Re: Mirror mode? How?

No, that mode would not allow for simultaneous printing. I'm looking for the feature that switches the printer into mirror mode. There's a code that switches it to duplication mode so that both extruders print the exact same thing simultaneously with the plate divided in half in the y-axis. The mirr...

Re: Mirror mode? How?

Yes, it would be a slicer setting. Any idea how to do it?

Mirror mode? How?

I thought I read somewhere that the M3-ID is able to print in mirror mode. I have some parts that would work great in this mode but I can't figure out how to access it. It's different than the duplication mode. Does anyone know how to get this working?

Re: M3/M2 Enclosure

I need the enclosure for printing polycarbonate. I have another printer inside the enclosure I made for PC and it works great. But I wanted to be able to make 2-color parts with the M3-ID. I do print a lot of PETG but switched to PC on some parts because some of them started to warp badly in very ho...

Re: M3/M2 Enclosure

Very old post but I purchased one of these from Partsbuilt recently so I could save time building one myself. I was particularly keen on how it vents the electronics box outside the enclosure, possibly eliminating the need to mount the electronics outside. Well, I was disappointed with it. I tried i...

Re: Uneven extrusion?

Possibly the set screws on the motor pulley are loose. I had a similar look on one of my printers and I traced it to the gears on the motor.

Re: Firmware and Octoprint Updates

I have had no issues using the non-MakerGear version of Octoprint on the M2 or the M3-ID. I’m also using PrusaSlicer instead of Simplify3D for everything except dual modes on the M3. I say this because I think it’s fine to experiment. There doesn’t seem to be any risk with using standard Octoprint, ...

Re: Glass Bed

The yellow coating on the glass is meant to stay in place. It helps with adhesion and is also replaceable once it gets damaged. I don’t know if they make sheets or rolls wide enough for this printer though. You can also print on other bed types. It’s common to switch to a magnetic, flexible, texture...

Re: T0 extrudes thinner than T1?

It could be a difference with the filaments. When I got my m3id t1 was ever so slightly thinner. Traced it to the t1 hot end being installed very slightly higher than t0 and after I ran the calibration on octoprint it got fixed.

Re: Brand new to 3d printing and having a few issues with M3-ID rev. 1

Brian, wow, just saw this post and am very surprised no one has spoken up so far. Were you able to get this sorted out? I am also a new M3-ID owner and I did have some similar issues with T1 banging into T0. I think I solved this by using a different printer profile I downloaded from MakerGear's Git...
