  1. Hola - I'm trying to print a part that uses pretty much the entire buildplate on my M2, plus or minus a couple of mm. The M2's origin as the lower left of the buildplate and the work volume is 200 x 250 x 200. When it prints, it tries to print off the front of the buildplate and it stops at about 45mm from the back of the buildplate. I can manually move the nozzle over the entire build plate. ? TIA
  2. I opened a previous version's Cura file and got the data from the settings
  3. Thanks for the reply - I'm in CT. I found some 70D on Amazon, let's hope it's not a typo hahaha. Regards
  4. Hi - Made some parts out of Hatchbox TPU, Shore 95A. They could be a little harder but I'm having trouble locating Shore 100 TPU - does anyone know a source? TIA Peter
  5. Thanks for the replies - Regarding enclosing the printer, I've tried it on a Sindoh DP200 which is fully enclosed anyway...right now I'm running another one on an open Makerbot M2 but it has another 20 hours to go and it hasn't reached that area yet, so I don't know what the result will be. I made the first few prototypes with PLA but this is a functional prototype (it's a nail gun in most respects) and I need the strength of ABS to withstand test firing. What I'm trying now is a 12mm column that anchors the curling area to the platter and I will saw it off after it's finished - I just don't think the raft secures it enough. When it's done I'll post the result.
  6. Hola - I've done (3) 20 hour prints of this part with no success. As you can see in the photo, it's a handgrip and it's bending at the end. It should be straight and flat and I have a raft support under the entire part. In the photo, you can see that I even tried adding a square column under the end of the part that stopped about 1mm away so that the raft would have something to anchor it better... It didn't help. It keeps turning up in a curl. The material is ABS, I'm running 250C on the hot end and 110C on the platter, printing at 60mm on a Sindoh DP200. Any ideas? TIA https://goo.gl/photos/yAZAMdpY4oHse7jJA
  7. Yes, it does. I think it was a flow problem. I cranked the bed up to 95C from 60C and it helped.
  8. My one at a time issue was due to the fact that my print head size was incorrect in the printer definition - it was 1.7 x 240 mm. Making it 1.7 x 1.7 allowed it to slice one at a time successfully. Thanks to the developers.
  9. Hi Peggy - It's not specific to my printer, it's Cura. Set your layer height to 0.07mm with 100% infill and a distance equal to your orifice and you will see what I mean. I uploaded my project, you can try yourself. Those settings are not manufacturer-dependent.
  10. Hi Peggy - Yes I did open the file you sent, but it was all-at-once and I need one at a time. I'm using a MakerBot M2, the latest version. I am not using any Support or Adhesion, so Brim is not an issue. I tested more and found that the problem is regarding One-At-A-Time vs All-At-Once. Cura can slice All-At-Once but not One-At-A-Time, depending upon the accuracy/resolution. I can slice 25 parts if all at once.... but why can't it do it one at a time? Seems to be a bug to me.
  11. I find that if I have more than 3 parts, Cura 2.3/2.4/2.5 won't even slice them at "one at time". It says none of them are in the volume, which is untrue. It can do more than 3 if I increase the layer height (reduce the number of slices) and generally make the part lower quality but even then, there is an upper limit to how many Cura can slice. This should be pretty easy for the software to handle.
  12. How do I share a project file? Google Drive? https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5J2gg__lVTNcVhpV3JIaFA5dmc This project will not slice if set to "one at a time".... it should be a piece of cake. No version of Cura that I tried (15, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5) could successfully do it.
  13. Sure - I've done some more testing and it is related mainly to "one at a time" vs "all at once"... it sure doesn't like "one at a time" with fine settings.
  14. More info - I find if I set it from "one at a time" to "all at once" it will do a dozen but quality is definitely a factor in how it behaves. Make it too fine and it won't slice.
  15. I am trying to make a batch of identical parts. They're very simple washers. Any more than 3 of them and it says "Unable to Slice because none of the models are in the volume" ... which is patently untrue. Any ideas? TIA
