conservative print parameters

Recommended Posts

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

http://wiki.makerbot.com/configuring-skeinforge

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!

EM

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!

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
