Heat bed support for netfabb - how?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Heat bed support for netfabb - how?

I can't get netfabb to support the heatbed that I've added. I've even tried to add the M140/M190 commands to the header/footer of the gcode, but netfabb keeps adding M104 S0 commands to turn off the heatbed all over the gcode.

Is there some way to force netfabb to work with my heatbed?

thanks,

reza

    Did you add the heat bed temperature to your Material settings? You need to put the temp for the heatbed into the profiles along with the nozzle temperature. I find Netfabb doesn't pre-heat the bed though, it puts the M140 command at the start of layer one instead of at the beginning of the code so I usually move it myself to the top before printing.

    Cheers,

    Troy.

    I've improved my Ultimaker with a heated bed too. After modifying the firmware, the Ulticontroller supports the heated bed. But I dont find a way to activate the heated bed in netfabb. I've set the teperatures for the bed in all material definitions. But there is displayed still only the selection "No heated bed"

    Thanks for help

    Norbert

    I can print with the heated bed using the M140 / M190 codes putted to the GCode Header. But I belive that there should be a better solution because netfabb seems to support a heated bed in the "machine" tab form. There is a selection for "Heater bed" But the only selection is "No heated bed" I think that it should be possible to configure the heated bed in the Ultimakerconfig.xml file.

    Again, did you try this part of codemaven's instructions?

    I have never used netfabb. It just seems like codemaven gave you an answer but you didn't respond to his question.

    I think maybe you *did* respond but it's not clear to me. Maybe codemaven understands.

    Yes. I've defined the temperatures in the material settings. This will work. At start of printing, the bed temperature will change to the value defined in the material settings.

    But my goal is to configure netfabb for the heat bed option: There is a print screen of the prepared selection for the heated bed:

    Hi ePower,

    I've not changed that option in NetFabb. I leave it as "No Heated Bed". I believe that only affects the manual control options. Which, I suppose could be an issue if you don't have an ultracontroller... but I do not connect my UM to my computer anymore, I do all of my printing through the ultracontroller.

    Regards,

    Troy.

    Hi Troy and gr5

    Thanks a lot for your responses. I own a UltiController an I've added there a menu item to "cooldown nozzle" and "cooldown bed" as separate selections :-) But I'm still looking for a solution to activate the heated bed in netfabb. I'm sure this must be just a setting in the configuration file. I've seen the heated bed option working with the fabbster engine. I've called now the support of netfabb for a solution.

    Regards - Norbert
