Re: Shortening the second hot-end for printing difficult large objects ?

Ok, thanx :) That is what I thought.

But indeed I did not think doing it with the heater warmed

I also suspect that slicers produce faulty gcode for large objects and I will try to optimize the STL, e.g. with meshmixer, and play with various slicers

Re: Shortening the second hot-end for printing difficult large objects ?

thanx, sorry, didn't see your answer earlier , forgot to subscribe to my post =

But I forgot to tell that I have a Felix Pro 1. It's architecture does not seem to allow this (i.e. I cannot find a screw to manipulate height).

Shortening the second hot-end for printing difficult large objects ?

Hi, I had difficulties printing large terrain models since the second (cold) hot-end can get stuck and rip away the model. A solution I have in mind is to remove the nozzle (tip) from the second hot end. However, I do not like to do that very much since I broke the hotend last time I tried (well it ...

Re: Pro 1 spooling filament hook

Why would you need free floating spools? The friction prevents coils getting unwound accidentally. And the torque from the extruder on the spool is plenty. Hi, you got a good point here. The main reason probably is souvenirs from the dark ages where extruders did not have enough grip. I suffered ba...

Pro 1 spooling filament hook

20160229_210138.jpg I never was very happy the default Felix Pro filament hooks since if offers IMHO too much resistance (Of course you could use your own filament spool holder but that's another issue). So I pasted a new one together from four sources that will spool smoothly: (1) I cut away the "...

Re: Pro 1 discussion

I use the FelixBuilder software and there is only this object on the base. I used the standard settings for PLA, single_head_normal_detail, with 3 contours and which do the infill first before creating the contours, and the support by using the same material. I also think that this is a slicing pro...

Re: Pro 1 threeway filament guide

Have either of you tried any prints with sharp corners? I may try turning up the jerk settings to get sharper corners, all of mine are coming out rounded. Dhatw. Depends on what you mean by sharp :) I found that PLA is pretty OK, but if want something sturdier, did you try "Bridge Nylon". It's not ...

Re: Pro 1 threeway filament guide

With the first layer you need to compensate for small errors in the print bed and in the calibration height. Ah thanx :) I didn't understand that nor even think about it ! ... but I now do understand why recent prints did not go as well as when the machine was new. I printed with TPEs and other mat...

Re: Pro 1 threeway filament guide

I am currently trying FormFutura HD glass which is supposed to be PETG I was told. The solid color not the translucent stuff. My prints are not smooth and edges and corners are rough. I didn't try FormFutura HD glass, but t-glase which is a kind of PET(T) and I don't know if it is similar to yours....
