  1. yes i know when its unchecked it doesnt use the settings but what im asking is, my print speed is 40mm/s, but when i enable the settings it makes it 11.25mm/s, guess im asking what is the default bridge speed with it unticked and im guessing that is whatever your print speed is, so i may of just answered my own question im assuming the defaults are Bridge Wall speed - whatever your print speed is Bridge wall flow - what ever your flow rate is Bridge skin density - whatever your line spacing is just trying to work out what the printer does when its
  2. if anyone is wondering, i think its because the fan speed is set to high so its cooling the part to much, i tried printing with 0 fan and it was almost perfect and no lifting, but you dont get the best finish, but i think i just need to find the correct fan speed
  3. quick question, when i tick "Enable Bridge Settings" it changes a whole lot of setting (all the ones in the picture below), my question is when its not ticket what are these settings? this way i have a base line to start off with, but since as soon as i tick it they change settings, it makes it hard to work out what it was like to begin with. are you able to tell me the settings they revert back too when you untick it on all the bridge settings? for example "Bridge Wall Speed" i believe the default is whatever the "Print Speed" is set too not 11.25 in this case it shoul
  4. i have a Anet A8, i use cura im having issues where my part starts lifting i use to use blue tape what works find for smaller prints, but not larger, and is super hard to remove prints from, ive also wiped the tape down with alcohol to improve it to stick but it ends up lifting the tape off the bed and even harder to remove so things ive tried blue tape - part lifts, sometimes the tape blue tape with alcohol - part still lifts, also high chance to lift the tape increased bed temp from 60c to 65 slowing the first layer speed to 15mm/s swapping bed to Anycubic Ultrabase
  5. ah, maybe thats it, i must of seen it when seeing what slicer i like yea, it must of been a slic3r setting
  6. i believe there is a setting where you can add a full layer every xxx layers so say you ahve 20% infill, it prints the bottom layer, then does infill, then say 50 layers in, it will print another bottom layer i believe i saw this setting, but i cant remember what it is called. any help?
  7. im not sure what you mean by check the density of the triangles the image looks like this
  8. ill have a look at meshmixer. the file size is 2.16mb for a print of about 1 meter of filament 1.75mm (20-30mins print) im not sure if thats big or not for what it is
  9. i use autodesk inventor, any tips for that?
  10. sorry, this isnt my first print, square box seems fine, just the round im struggling with , also im not using the ultimaker. i did print something similar a while ago and that looks great, but i dont remember if that was before i updated cure and i had to put my setting back in. your settings still had the issue but made it look neater so the green is the same settings and the big gray one and the little gray one is your settings this is a different model what i did a while ago, there is no blobs but there is a little bit of layer lifting
  11. the top surfaces look like that coz i stop the print as i can see i still have the same issue i tried a different filament, and it is better but not perfect. maybe ill try resetting the cure settings to default and see what that does
  12. so i changed as many of my settings to yours and still having the issue i am running a newer version of cura but thats about it
  13. so that didnt work, i tried slower speed and lower temp, same thing i havent used it much, so i dont think that is the issue
  14. i just lowered the temp to 195 and same issue i changed all speeds to 30, but kept travel speeds higher no change, im getting the same issue i know printing in straight lines is mostly fine, but printing this circle is super bad im running out of ideas
  15. ill try a slower speed and see how that goes is there a easy way to post all settings? temp was 205c PLA (this is the worst pla ive used so far as well) print speed was 50 (normally i do 40 but i did abit faster for the test but ill drop it back) outer wall speed 25 wall count 2 + alternative extra wall ticked
  16. ill attach a image to show you what im trying to fix ive tried reading online to see what people say to fix it, but all the settings ive tried didnt work things ive tried are Z seam alignment from random to shortest Retraction distance from 1.2 to .4 Travel combing mode from off to All Turned off retract at layer change Retraction distance from 1.2 to 2.2 Retract at layer change to off Retract before outer wall off none of the settings worked, is ther
  17. normally it is more flat, if anything i dont have any issue with the print being held to the bed, if anything it holds to well and i cant even get it off xd but changing the combing mode was the trick for now
  18. ok so i just checked the bed and i cant get it any closer, i can only just fit a piece of paper in it, and its scraping the paper. is there a setting to retract everytime it moves away from a line? Edit - i just tried to post again and it didnt post so maybe it didnt like me posting 3 times in a row, so ill edit it here for now after days and hours of testing, i finally found the fix what i was after Settings>Travel>Tick "Combing Mode">Change it from 'All' to 'Off' this way it doesnt stay inside the part and retracts, so this way it does ooze over my print, so when it goes to pri
  19. hmm, ill level it again, im using a piece of paper for thickness when i changed the first layer hight to .15mm nothing came out, so i thought it was too close, but ill try get it closer no i dont have auto leveling yet, only screws on average what is a good retraction number? i was using .8 but someone said thats way to low
  20. Thanks for the reply, i did what you said and no success, but i was amazed how much more it stuck when cleaning with the alcohol, as in harder to remove ill give you abit more information. i set my nozzle to a paper where it grips the paper abit, normally i print the first layer at .2mm but the first post picture was at .4 or .3 to see if it was any different here is a picture of the first layer at .2, i have tried .15 first layer but fine the filament doesnt come out very well, as you can see it fixed the first hole but the left hole is completely broken, ill attach a video of how it is mo
  21. Hey All im having trouble getting parts of my print to be hole. i have a feeling when its moving from 1 part to another its not retracting, so when it goes to print, nothing comes out for abit because its oozed/stringed ive tried turning on retraction prime, and still no luck. i notice its more of a issue when moving longer distances but as you can see from the picture, it has issues with just 15mm away is there a setting i can fix this with? it just wont draw the circles. ive attached pictures of the issue im having the line going to the circle is the entrance line, not the exit the
