Just got Netfabb...

Edited the head so it knows about my marlin firmware.

My question is about the default profiles. Are they pretty much supposed to work out of the box? I mean except for the temps? I set my temps in the material and loaded up my standard sphere with support test print. The extruder is turning extremely slow. I would say 1/5 the speed it would be turning on this model out of SF.

There seems to be a plethora of places to set extruder speed. I am just used to the volumetric SF settings and have no idea what to set these (or even which ones matter) to.

I guess if I had a check list of settings that need to be set or changed as a starting point would be great.

I assume I need to get this thing printing something before I start messing with calibration too... correct?

    Hi

    It should be close

    Make sure though that your settings on the 'Print' tab match.

    For example if you are using one of the 'High Quality' styles in the 'Print Quality' Dropdown you need to use 'PLA - High' in your 'Configuration' box, else it will be way out. Other than that you should calibrate as soon as you can.

    That is what I am doing, I duplicated the PLA High and entered my temps. The end result looks like someone sneezed PLA on the table. Just trickling out of the head. If I look at the extruder wheel it is going painfully slow. I'll try resetting it tonight and see what I can come up with.

    Generally, the high-quality netfabb profiles have pretty small layer heights, which means not much PLA is deposited per layer, and hence the extruder turns very slow... this is normal... the principle behind them is also relatively low temp printing... Paul is going as low at 185C on his UM (his temp setting is spot on on his UM)... in order to do this, you might want to fix your temp issue first.

      • 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
