Re: #$% skirt and first layer aren't priming

The only thing I could think of that could be easy to miss and cause something like that is a very incorrectly set filament diameter. Anyway, as you said you won't reply so this would just be for anyone stumbling into this via google. :mrgreen:

Re: #$% skirt and first layer aren't priming

If it's not in the gcdoe, this has literally nothing to do with the slicer.

Re: Color mixing ideas

Yes, I have worked with those mixing nozzles before. It needs quite a bit of pressure, and that would have to come from the extruder. That will have to be a super-extruder... ;-) Ah, that''s what I thought! Too bad. I had never even seen one in real life before. I imagine one could be designed that...

Re: Tower Angles to bed

I never figured out how to adjust it on the rostock max. On my custom printer, I raised the bed at points to be true to the towers (after I made the towers as equidistant and parallel to each other).

Re: Tower Angles to bed

I bet if you look at the specs of that tool, it is only accurate to =/- 0.3 degrees, so basically useless considering your measurements all fall within that range. I recently squared up my custom printer using a machinist square (12" one) and it worked well. You'll need something that is precis...

Re: PEI is amazing!

How long have you had the PEI? I find that for large ABS prints it is basically essential that I sand the sheet with 600 grit sandpaper beforehand to make the sheet completely smooth but matte. It gives the surface a grippy feel to it. Give that a shot, and make sure you are erring on the side of to...

Re: Not very impressed with Smoothie

626pilot, if your Duet has the small bed heater connector then it must be the older version 0.6 board. The 0.8.5 board has a much larger connector, same as the Duet WiFi. I guess you haven't looked at the RepRapFirmware source tree for a while. It isn't as flat as it used to be and I am gradually r...

Re: Lets talk Duet Controller v0.8.5 VS SmoothieBoard and LCD Screens On Max Metal Builds

Yeah, it's funny timing for 626 to come and start ranting about his dated experience with a last-generation product. I wonder if the smoothie camp is getting their haunches up over the popularity of the duet ecosystem, and they sent their ambassador to clear the mud. :roll: :lol:

Re: Not very impressed with Smoothie

Give the DuetWifi a shot, it should have all the improvements you're after (beefier hotend connector) and the ability for tons of motors. I'd like to see what smoothe 2 does, but the Duet seems much more reliable and well-thought out. It's a delivered, ready to use package whereas the smoothie has b...

Re: Printer Geometry Numbers? New vs. Old Carriages and Repetier 0.91 vs 0.92

Yes, horizontal radius in eeprom is the only value that matters. the offsets don't matter either, you can simply declare the variable in the firmware directly rather than subtracting any offsets. That is just for human (mis)understandability.

Some of the specs look okay, but specs are only specs and the "proof is in the pudding" as all the reprap groupies would say. As pointed out, we don't need a 32 bit marlin wonder. I'm hoping to see viable competition from smoothie 2 pro, but so far duet seems to be king of the all-around c...

Re: Autodesk Fusion 360

Yeah, I use it a lot. I designed a printer with it. It has quirks, and changes so fast sometimes things break... so it's good that they provide such generous trial periods. I'd be upset sometimes if I were paying for the service. Overall, massive functionality for the price.

Re: Simplify3D S3D Version 3.1.0 Released

Mac, that's a feature not a bug. With new versions come new bugs, and if you depended on the workflow you were used to with a previous version, it's best to have it installed still.
