Control Flow Rate During Print

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a way to control the flow rate during a print? I've seen that there's a tweak at Z plugin and from what I've understood that's only usable for changing predetermined properties at predetermined layers of the print. What i'm wondering is if there's a way to change the flow rate as the print is already going like you can do in MatterControl.

Thank you in advance,

Nirel

yes.  You want tweak-at-z.

Flow rate can be changed.  It's a gcode.  You can also change it on-the-fly from the TUNE menu.

 

So tweak at Z is from what i've gathered something you set at the begining of the code and cant change after you click print, correct? I'm asking about a more on the fly type of thing.

Where is the TUNE menu? I can't find it.

Just realized my problem, I'm using a ROBO3DR1 printer, not an ultimaker, so I dont have the screen and controller for it. is there any way to access the TUNE menu directly from the computer?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
