conservative print parameters


Recommended Posts

Posted · conservative print parameters

I have a relatively new (2-month-old) Ultimaker.

I have conservatively tried to work with Skeinforge 35, but the number of parameters in PLA-Ultimaker-failsave v1 is overwhelming

help files such as


are minimally helpful, partially because it is not a good fit and partially because it is sketchy.

can someone point me to a consistent set of parameters? I'm willing to try newer Skeinforge files, but I need to be sure that I have all the files, so as not to be left guessing.

many thanks!

    1: upgrade to the Marlin firmware

    2: dump skeinforge 35 and get at least SF 44

    3: read through

    http://wiki.ultimaker.com/Sprinter#Spri ... _and_later

    . Yes, it says Sprinter firmware, not Marlin, but don't worry about that.

    4: post again if you have more questions or problems!


    Yikes! Instructions from the DC-extruder days and SF6. Don't read those!
