Control Flow Rate During Print

Posted · Control Flow Rate During Print

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?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
