  1. cloakfiend I understand, when I first started out with 3d printing I was learning by myself (made loads of mistakes and learned from them) didn't seem to get away with cura, and at the time S3D was in a field of its own, if you were planning to use Multy extrusions it was the thing to learn ,, how time's have changed🙄
  2. RudydG thanks for the advise have not placed order YET still thinking, I take on board and totally agree about S3D I use it all the time but can see an end to it with the UM3S Thanks for the advise.
  3. Just Returned from the TCT Birmingham and I'm seriously considering buying the s3 I like the footprint I like what I see under the bonnet, but I'm after reliability and quality of print, along with reliable Pva Supports, I've made no hiding the fact I don't use cura but will have to get over that, I would of like however the s5 material handler to be usable with the s3, if I have to watch moisture with pva it does not make sense to me to have to find a third party product that will do the job.. I think UM are moving away from the makers which is a bit sad but I think UM should also be aware with such a high price tag comes commitment from UM that the product is working and working well, if not then this erodes there Kudos. I think my s3 is in order ??
  4. chputney thank you for your advise I use notepad ++ and I place the pause where I want it, I will try the G1 instead of the G92 thank you for your input..
  5. Tinkergnome thanks again for the reply, I tried just doing a pause but M0, but there seems to be some discrepancy this works on the ultimaker but not on the Taz or the Prusa on the Prusa it defaults to some 10 sec then re starts, so I tried to standardise the command across all the printers 30s gives just enough time to insert lead weights and magnets. Im using S3D to slice, I have never used Cura and I think im starting to pay the price when you look at Cura / Slicer they are leaving S3D behind.. So going back do you think this should work, I altered the E from the last line before the pause and re instated it to the G92 G1 X85.679 Y103.328 E198.5816 ;pause 1 G91 ; set Relative G1 E-0.50 F1800 ; Retract :start of bobs stop G1 Z20 F3000 X20 Y50; move to Z20 X20 Y50 at F3000 speed M0 S30 ; pause G1 E1.0 F1000 ; purge 1mm fillament G90 ; Set absolute G92 E198.5816 G1 X85.679 Y103.328 F2000 these are taken from last line before pause G1 Z2.930 G1 X152.300 Y169.949 E202.6365 F1380 G1 X151.577 Y170.329 E202.6717 G1 X85.990 Y104.742 E206.6637 G1 X86.300 Y106.156 E206.7260 G1 X150.854 Y170.709 E210.6551 G1 X150.131 Y171.089 E210.6902 G1 X86.611 Y107.569 E214.5564 Can you see anything that should retract all my filament ?? Again Thank you for the Advise. Bob
  6. ;pause 1 G91 ; set Relative G1 E-0.50 F1800 ; Retract :start of bobs stop G1 Z20 F3000 X20 Y50; move to Z100 X145 Y150 at F4000 speed M0 S30 ; pause G1 E1.0 F1000 ; purge 1mm fillament G90 ; Set absolute G92 E0.0 G1 X85.679 Y103.328 F2000 these are taken from next feature G1 Z2.930 G1 X152.300 Y169.949 E202.6365 F1380 G1 X151.577 Y170.329 E202.6717 G1 X85.990 Y104.742 E206.6637 G1 X86.300 Y106.156 E206.7260 G1 X150.854 Y170.709 E210.6551 G1 X150.131 Y171.089 E210.6902 G1 X86.611 Y107.569 E214.5564 I looked at the code and decided where the pause would be there's two pauses in the complete programme, the print is in absolute (start of G code) I had two issues 1 unless I put the G92 in the filament would be completely retracted ruining the print and when I could get it to re print the line G1 X152.300 Y169.949 E202.6365 F1380 would go to the X and Y coordinates but the extruder was not extruding but the next line it started to extrude,, i'm working on two projects both need a pause in it 1 on the Ultimaker 2 and the other on Taz 6 the code above is running on Taz 6 i'm reluctant to do anymore prints until I know where I'm going wrong Taz 6 uses Marlin. I wondered if the reason there was no movement from the extruder was something todo with the E202.6365 with me placing the G92 E0.0 (did this re set extruder length to 0 ?? any advise greatly received.. Bob
  7. Tinkergnome thank you for taking the time to respond it is appreciated.. My apologies my original code had been modified to take out the incremental and absolute commands (suggested by some else) below is directly from my sd card
  8. Hi All I hope someone can help me with this Im wanting to pause my print at a given place and I use a a few lines of code that basically does a retract move away from print and pause then resume ;pause 1 G1 E-0.50 F1800 ; Retract :start of bobs stop G1 Z20 F3000 X20 Y50 M0 S30 ; pause G1 E1.0 F1000 ; purge 1mm fillament G92 E0.0 G1 Z2.930 G1 X152.300 Y169.949 E202.6365 F1380 G1 X151.577 Y170.329 E202.6717 G1 X85.990 Y104.742 E206.6637 G1 X86.300 Y106.156 E206.7260 but line G1 X152.300 Y169.949 E202.6365 F1380 does not print, it moves to the x and y coordinates but the extruder is not moving until the next line could some explain where Im going wrong
  9. does the Mark 2 conversion work with cura 4.1 I have it working on V3.2 was going to upgrade but want to check first..
  10. greatg no I have not connected it I have the mark two mod on so didn't see the point I thinking of getting UM3 and connecting it but not sure,, Ahoeben I agree that is a reason I'm not printing much with palette top picture is a product im developing so is a functional model (Proto type) it takes to long 18hrs in fact the purge block is the majority of the time the car was 10hrs but, im struggling with the waist,, there is however ways around the waist, my reason for putting the pics up is to show the Palette is an option and it does work...although I just stuffed my printer up using PVA which I wont do again...
  11. I am considering the kit to put on my Pallette and hook up my UM2
  12. trying to print a pyramid out, but its cut into 4. bottom piece and third piece printed by head 1 and the second and 4th piece printed by head two, how do you stop cura giving a bottom shell to the third piece while keeping the bottom of the first piece... help appreciated
