Re: Faster Heated Bed

Can be true but only on design from scratch. If you have a specific desired wattage and double the voltage you can design a circuit with four times the resistance and get the same power from half the current. If you have a nominally-designed circuit, raise the voltage, and lighten the wires, have th...

Re: V2 Enclosure

Voice of experience, PLA will transmit more torque than ABS, box end would be even better.

Re: Orientation vs time to print

Jim's latter point is especially true if you have cooling enabled to avoid depositing on molten layers without running a part fan (per the general recommendation for ABS). If you have small enough layers that your selected minimum layer time drives the machine speed, print time will literally be pro...

Re: Slic3r Mach3 Problem

If your gcode is commanding different speeds and you're not getting different speeds there's a chance your speed limit in your firmware is lower than all the speeds commanded by the gcode.

Re: Filament broke during long print

Is your thermocouple still in good contact? Have you confirmed your PEEK fan is still running and blowing over the hot end in the correct direction?

Yes, but it won't if it doesn't recognize the syntax.

Re: Temp Crash on print start

The Slic3r environment variables should be in square brackets, not curly.

Re: Slic3r Prints Never Start...

I downloaded the preferences you're talking about and looked at it. It specifies triangular infill, which is not a listed option in Slic3r, so it shouldn't be for the Slic3r engine. The curly brackets around the environment variable names would also be a problem if the Slic3r engine is trying to use...

Re: Stops extruding - Wrong temperature?

IR thermometers can be less reliable when targeting something as small as a hot end. Have you added the PEEK fan and are you sure the filament is not PLA?

Re: Slic3r Prints Never Start...

Did you get your copy of Slic3r the same place the others did? Your Slic3r variables in the start G-code are also in curly brackets instead of square brackets. The code won't parse that correctly.

Re: Prints are too tall

I thought about putting that in the previous post, but I'm still kind of new to the delta math. That may be a full cal. If everything was perfectly square the endstops would still be in the right places, but everything may not be perfectly square. With the distances being different it may take a dif...

Re: Prints are too tall

That makes sense for your machine having an 80 nominal.

92.650 steps/mm / 80 steps/mm = 1.158.

29 mm / 25 mm = 1.16.

16% too many steps, 16% too-tall parts. Not looking like a coincidence.

Re: extrusion issues with rostock v2

Cooling settings with a minimum layer time should help , but as small as some of those layers are you'll have to slow down dramatically. Another thing that can be done, rather than just slowing down the print to almost nothing, is to make more than one copy or make something else of equal or greater...

Re: Slic3r Prints Never Start...

Not sure how you got those settings. Check your Start G-code field. References to Slic3r variables should be in square brackets, not curly brackets. It would also make more sense to use the first layer temp variables instead of those corresponding to the rest of the print.
