  1. I wonder what makerbot will announce hmmmmm... I wonder if 3D systems will buy pp3dp..and will this machine be closed source? This makes my heart jump and my stomach feel funny :S...I don't like this at all..

  3. I'm using abs with netfabb with a sells mendel (I know a bit different from an Ultimaker though) And succesfully too (now). I'm using ddurants netfabb material profile creator from his thread. I needed to over increase the filament diameter to compensate for the packing density of abs being lower than pla...I think that's what it is/why anyway :S Rencio out.
  4. I'm printing at 0.1mm layers now with half layer support too! I might be able to go even lower I'm having no extruder jams too because of the very controlled feed rates so I can leave it for like 4 + hours without fear of fails, jams etc. I've never managed this feat before on my mendel . You are a great contributor to the reprap/ultimaker community ddurant . I see from the netfabb forum they have offered to add your configurator to the actual netfabb program! Good luck with that I've realised I know quite a little about the math behind the reprap (even after like 3+ years of doing it) :oops: and you've made me want to learn more to unlock more potential in the machine and enjoy it more with less frustration because of that. My prints are getting better and better each time with tweaking of course- a little over extrusion though .. It really shows the lower tolerances my printed parts sells custom mendel has compared to the cnc made ultimaker when you do macro shots! I need to replace the x axis smooth rods as they are very worn after 2+ years.. Still I'm happy Oh I'm printing in black abs with an arcol 0.35mm.. I use this mod supposedly doubling accuracy.. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:8852 hmm.. I get a lot less backlash because of this mod too! You need to double the steps per mm when using this mod. http://i.imgur.com/XZAIw.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Mov7d.jpg
  5. Ok...I've got marlin setup with ramps 1.4...so smooth and quieter with 1/8 step! I'm not using 1/16th because its overheating - probs due to the belt upgrade/mod.. I've tried repetier firmware too but I'm having a few teething problems.. Ok back to netfabb. My extruder is using 1/16th stepping. My volumetric was around 45 (before) so I multiplied that by 8 to give 360 (14 * 360) / 865.88800 = 5.82061421 #define DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT {84.86,79.06,3472.44,5.82061421} So then I tried the default and generated configs... (semi)Sucessful print of sophos head...needs a tweak though. I haven't succesfully done a 0.15mm layer print before straight off so it's lookin good. One thing which I'm noticing is that the extruder speed isn't changing though noticeably..or at all its like a constant rate and the feed rate is compensating. On ultra (on the fill) it is very slow (feed rate) and on fine (round the edges) it is very fast (feed rate) . Any tips on whether my max feedrate is limiting me ? x y z e #define DEFAULT_MAX_FEEDRATE {1500, 1500, 5, 70} Oh and some feedback on your netfabb program ddurant. [*]The start and end code don't seem to work - you probably realise this though .. Oh and a question...what does time before filling hatches do? Have a happy new year reprappers <3 Edit - here are the pics of the rough print.. http://horobox.co.uk/u/Rencio7_1325440985.jpg http://horobox.co.uk/u/Rencio7_1325409732.jpg http://horobox.co.uk/u/Rencio7_1325382671.jpg
  6. hmm.. I'm pretty sure my volumetric esteps was around 40 maybe I am mistaken...and I've changed back since I have switched to netfabb.. I used the sf40+ volutmetric calculator ... http://calculator.josefprusa.cz/#ExtrusionSF40 ... :oops: Ahh is this 'real' esteps a different beast to this or are you using the formula based on 16th stepping? Umm I use half-stepping gen3 drivers.. and a modded x and y #define X_STEPS_PER_MM 21.21593291404612//10.124171898769282480213688728022#define X_STEPS_PER_INCH (X_STEPS_PER_MM*INCHES_TO_MM) // *RO#define INVERT_X_DIR 0#define Y_STEPS_PER_MM 19.765323876051237#define Y_STEPS_PER_INCH (Y_STEPS_PER_MM*INCHES_TO_MM) // *RO#define INVERT_Y_DIR 0#define Z_STEPS_PER_MM 868.1096681096683//859.4285714285716//782.08//681.0008084074373 //842.398*0.9115770282588879#define Z_STEPS_PER_INCH (Z_STEPS_PER_MM*INCHES_TO_MM) // *RO#define INVERT_Z_DIR 1 #define E0_STEPS_PER_MM 40
  7. email nettfabb at support at netfabb.com - they are very open to suggestions/changes/ideas I have have asked for some changes and they say they will probably implement/have implemented now.. or post on their forum http://www.netfabb.com/forum.php They will probably check this forum too so I guess we could make a list of wants/changes/improvements? My wants and problems for netfabb: - [*]Changeable base plate size for custom machines - I know there is an option but I haven't noticed an effect. [*]Moveable calibration circles to position on base plate + tweaking object size/resolution (my machine misses steps sometimes but only on the calibration circles strangely.... [*]Ability to deactivate a machine as I frequently have to reactivate and am worried about activating too much (I've emailed for resets multiple times + having to wait for replies though fast can be frustrating when your machine is unusable for a brief time) I'd love to have a usb dongle option.. [*] I will add more later today..time for bed 4:20 am lol :lol:
  8. sooo lemme try to understand :S its early here so I'll try to concentrate! :geek: Actually my esteps is 40 not 14..I forgot! I think that's close to volumetric on my setup..as I worked it out a while back for skeinforge.. So for example I wanted to transfer my settings into your formula I'd do this...? (14 * 40) / 865.88800 = 0.646734913 40 being my esteps.. 0.646734913 being my new esteps - I know its low but my 40 with default rpm rates the extruder speed was waaay to high so this number sort of makes sense...my 1st extruder (profile) rpm being 0.06 xD before (in netfabb) after trial and error.. I know M92 doesn't work for my gen3 (FiveD) I've got ramps 1.4 ready to go tomorrow if I have time or I will try teacup on the gen3..that supports M92.. I don't mind reuploading firmware each time to change esteps..is that what M92 is for just changing esteps and other steps before the print? I found this post - by coincidence I am the thread starter! I should of read this earlier.. http://www.netfabb.com/forum.php?aid=825842962&pid=441 Will add more later on if I think of anything.. Rencio out.
  9. This program is excellent as I didn't know the ratios between settings so it should help loads. I'll have a tweak, a little print, a think and get back to you thanks Rencio
  10. Ello.. I wish to try this program you've made .. I use abs and a 0.35mm nozzle with 2.89mm filament though...what do you advise I change? Oh yeh I also use a mendel with a wade extruder. I've always wondered what esteps per mm I should have for netfabb 4.8..I'm using 14 at the mo. I know it all depends on your setup. I've just used trial and error to create my profiles.. Oh my email is rencio7 at gmail.com. I really need to get a good profile it's really frustrating. I'll post some prints if you want..I want to reduce layer size as much as possible. cheers Rencio out.
