Reducing Stringing is skeinpypy

Recommended Posts

Good morning Gentlemen and Ladies

Ive had my ultimaker for just a few days, and i am currently having much success with the quality of my prints using skeinpypy =)

However, my current method to avoid stringing, is Ive just set the rapids value is skeinpypy to 3000....im pretty sure this just maxes out to whatever the max is in marlin. It works quite well in that there is little or no stringing, but there are still really shit markes in the print at the point where the strings should be.

Can anyone suggest a better tactic

P.S i attempted to use the filament reverse thing and had very limited success

Retraction/reversal is suppose to help against stringing even more. But a lower temperature also helps.

The travel speed is limited by the "Max feed rate" in the firmware, which is 250mm/s on the default build. This is a bit conservative as 300mm/s can also be achieved if apply proper lubrication. You can change the limit on the fly with "M203 X300 Y300"

      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
