Re: Hotend heating fast

The PID settings are exactly what regulates how much power is sent to the heater, depending on the current temperature of the hotend (proportional -> P), how the temperature developed in the past (integrative -> I), and how fast it is changing right now (derivative -> D). The influence of each of th...

Re: Hotend heating fast

You probably need to adjust the PID settings of your hotend.

Re: adjusting for dimensional accuracy?

A discrepancy of .7 mm isn't a whole lot. Keep in mind that some plastics shrink as they cool down, and this may differ per filament, color, etc. If you really need accurate parts, you should probably print a new calibration cube every time you use a different spool.

Re: Is a CR-10 a good printer for beginners?

I like the videos! In the last one the balance of the sound seems off... I can only hear you on the left side of my headset, which is a bit distracting.

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

I moved my printer to my dorm room a while back, finally had some time to set it up today. One of the belts was slacking but luckily it was easily fixed by loosening and re-tightening one of the pulleys.

Re: Simplify3d basic guide

I'm not sure what you mean by micro's, but you can use
M106 S0
or
M107
to turn off the fan (depends on the firmware).

Re: Changing Layer Height is a Single Print

This feature exists in simplify3d, off the top of my head I think it's called sparse infill. You set the layer height, and then the infill will be printed say every 3 layers or so, at 3 times the layer height. You can choose how much this should be of course.
