Re: Polymaker Polywood filament

Have you tried different temps for different layers? Hotter tends to darken (scorch) the filament, lower temp is lighter color. Worked for me on my Hatchbox Wood PLA (although I had to sand and polycoat for it to show).

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

I've been to https://goo.gl/maps/oPsSXLmVd712 back in 2011. Was great. Plan on being in a meat coma for a few days.

Heh. It also appears to be wife approved (yea, I asked first - what was I thinking).

Re: Has anyone seen the new Duale?

Ugh, also looking at the new Mosaic Palete 2 series. Can't decide. One is a whole new printer to play with, the other would work with both of my existing printers.

Decisions, decisions....

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

It will iron everything it considers to be a top layer, essentially any layer that doesn't have anything directly above it. Not just the highest layer of the whole print.

Re: Make GCode (starting script) Commands wait for G28 and G29 to finish before continuing?

I assume you have the EZABL provided firmware loaded on your printer? Otherwise, G29 will likely be disabled. Does the autolevel actually work? It should move the head and test Z 0 in several locations (matrix grid). Also, you should heat the bed prior to running autolevel. The headed bed can warp a...

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

Weird, on my Cura (3.4.1 Linux edition), the default is to print the infill before the shell and my prints come out great. I think the surface quality could be better if you turned on ironing mode. I have seen a surface quality improvement in doing so.

Re: The Twins

I'm surprised you didn't mount them from the top facing forward so you could see at a glance how much filament you have left.

Has anyone seen the new Duale?

Hictop released a dual extruder version of the CR-10S called the Duale. I see that the price just dropped significantly (it was $899 last month). My stock sale happens next week, may have to budget for it (I need a 3rd printer anyways, right?).

Re: Config.h for a 3DP-15

I recognize that control panel mod. :P

I did a quick google scan because I remember they had changed one minor thing on the 3DP-17 and relisted it on Amazon as the 3DP-14. It is highly possible that his is also like this, just a rebranded version.

Re: Cura defects in print

Have you tried an earlier version of Cura, see if it is a new issue? I often bounce between versions on Linux (made easy by their complete lack of an installer for Linux - just a runtime image). I have also seen new issues with 3.4.1. For example, my first few layers seem to be created in a concentr...

Re: Triangulatica

I see nothing here to download (download link is recursive to the front page). Also, their $9999 annual subscription pricing is a show stopper for hobbyists.

Re: Cura - Rafts

Ugh, that is such an old version. Why not use Cura 3.4.1 (or at least something far more recent)? There has been major improvements all around.

Re: Cura 3.2.21 stretches X in gcode

Think I am missing something here. I use Cura 3.4.1 (and have used 3.2.1 in the past) to connect to Octoprint with no problem. Are you using Octoprint to do the slicing? If so, that is using a very old CuraEngine (prior to Ultimaker taking over development). Recommend just slicing on PC and sending ...
