It isn't very difficult and there are a lot of youtubes on calibration. You will want to do it anyway. It's a basic tool for setting up the machine.
A google search should turn up the filament drivers, gears, rotary gizmos...whatever they're called.
(A 2 second search turned up Gulfcoast robotics. They have my gear for $1.99)
I'm sorry if this question has already been answered. I searched the forum for a while and couldn't find and answer.
I just got my first printer about a week ago so I'm still super new.
I am trying to add a specific filament to Cura from the marketplace. Iv'e installed it and made sure i am logged into my account and they are synced but I cannot figure out how to select the filament that has been added.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have been using our S5 to print prototype housings for a new product and just found that the X, Y and Z axes are not printing equally. I discovered this after parts were not fitting together properly. I have a 3.0 x 3.0 x 1.5 (XYZ) inch housing and I am getting 2.994 in X axis, 3.006 in Y axis and 1.485 in Z axis. How do I correct for this?
Is there a setting in Cura? An offset on the printer?
I have used other printers where you print a calibration cube in your desired material and then enter offsets to adjust. Then you repeat the print to verify/readjust.
I have searched and looked through the manual and website and can't find anything to help.
Suggestions of compensating in the CAD model are simply ridiculous. Surely Ultimaker has a better method. I just can't find it.
Okay, well that's good to know.
Where would I find something like that, I have a Monoprice Ultimate 2,
Is there some place that sells all kinds of 3D printing gear or whatever it's called?
I don't think I can calibrate steps, at least I don't know how to.
