Printhead setting not working

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printhead setting not working

I can't seem to get the Printhead Settings to work.  I have a Printrbot Simple 1405, which looks like this:

So based on my reading of the help text, the Xmin should be about 40mm, Xmax should be about 60mm, Ymin should be about 10mm, and Ymax should be some very large value, like 1000mm.  The Gantry Height should also be some very large value (which it is by default).

 

Unfortunately, these settings result in an overlay map like this:

As I found out the hard way, this doesn't print.  Cura prints the model on the right first, and then attempts to print the model on the left.  It ends up crashing into the model on the right instead.

Switch your Ymin and Ymax.  For my Simple Metal I have

Xmin 49 
Ymin 99999
Xmax 55
Ymax 20

 

And/or don't use one-at-a-time mode.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
