T-glase temp and feed settings


Recommended Posts

Posted · T-glase temp and feed settings


Not sure if this is the correct place for this question but I received an order of t glase filament. I've looked in all corners of the Internet and including the filament manufacture which in turn made it even more complex then my original question. Needless to say I left Tasman website with more questions. So my question I am wondering if anyone has any information pertaining to the feed percentage I should set my printer at for printing with t glase ? I concluded print temps are optimal at 240 to 245 and bed temp at 75 , now the feed speed I'm curious about I do know that Tasman recommends increasing nozzle size in cura or variation of cure / slicer by a factor of 75% to 80%. So for example from the website if you can decipher it.

1. Nozzle Size - If you don’t have a larger nozzle, on the order of .7mm or larger, you can still change the nozzle setting in your slicer. The slicer will allow more material out, thus equating to a larger nozzle. There are limits, but testers of t-glase found they could increase their .5mm nozzle up to .7mm.

NOTE: Nozzles smaller than .5mm will create a rather large amount of pressure on the extruding gears and components, and the line may begin to slip.

So speed of the material feeder and what the heck is above are my questions. If anyone has any idea love the input and would love to successfully print with this material.

    You should not increase the nozzle size in Cura unless you also change nozzles on the printer. If you have a UMO you can get a larger nozzle for well under $10 in usa (I assume 10 euros elsewhere) and if you have a UM2 you need to learn about the "olsson block" first before you can change your nozzle (google it).

    What country do you live in? And which printer do you have?

    Actually I often lie about nozzle size going smaller (tell cura I have a .35 nozzle when in fact it is .4) but never the other direction! Not a good idea. I can elaborate if needed.

    Your print temp is tooooo high for t-glase. I think Taulman recommend 212c. I am not at my 3D print laptop but I know I use a temp close to that. I have not changed nozzle from 0.4 although I have a diary note to try it with a .8 nozzle fitted. Oh yes I think print speed of less than 30mm/s is recommended (22/24?)

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
          • Thanks

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
