S5 Configuration Settings for S PRO 2.85mm Black CARBON-P 3D Printer Filament

Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 Configuration Settings for S PRO 2.85mm Black CARBON-P 3D Printer Filament

We've just purchased this:


RS PRO 2.85mm Black CARBON-P 3D Printer Filament


mainly for it's anti-static properties. Along with the CC Red 0.6mm Print Core.


Couple of questions:


1) We plan to begin printing shortly, so just wanted to ask the question, Will this run on a "Generic" material profile or will I have to configure our own ? If "our own", can any one recommend settings?


2) If we were to purchase the 1.75mm Black Carbon P, will the profile be different to that of the 2.85mm ?


3) To run the 1.75mm material this would have to bypass the material station and feed the the back of the machine (we've managed to purchase a 1Kg roll, so we are having to re-coil it onto an "original spool" removing the NFC tag) would the Machine Feeding system cope with this smaller Ø ?

    If there is a profile in the Marketplace, then you can just download the profile and it should also be transferred to the printer. Otherwise, select a generic material.


    Regarding 1.75mm filament: You cannot print with 1.75 filament on the S5. Bowden tubes and the print core are made for 2.85 and even when it works at the beginning you can get serious problems with it.
