Flashforge Guider II Profile


Recommended Posts

Posted · Flashforge Guider II Profile

Hi

Is there an update that has a Flashforge Guider II preset profile that I could use as I am new to 3D printing and wouldn't know where to start creating my own.

Cura has come to me highly recommended and would like to use it to its maximum capabilities. (eventually) Therefore need a perfect setup before I start. I have an iMac running on Monterey using an i5 processor.

Thanking everyone in advance

    Hi,

    I've made a Cura v5 profile for Flashforge Guider 2s (for PLA)

     

    What I did: Used Flashprint made some g-code for PLA and saved it. Opened the file in a text editor examined it

    and found start and end code sections. Added these into Cura start and stop code for the specific printer.

     

    BTW: Selected code flavour "Griffin" (something I picked up during my search for others settups)

     

    Be aware:

     

    The temperature settings are "hidden"/fixed in this code so if You decide to go for another

    material do the same again. Flashforge printer dose not read decimal temperatur settings.

     

    Examine each step in the start/end G-code be sure You understand/each step! Any peculiarities

    try to find explanantion (on the net) or ask Flashforge.

     

    How it works: Do Your the slicing in Cura, save sliced G-code fliename.g. Open it in Flashprint and send

    to printer.

     

    Flashprint has it's good sides and bad like Cura, no slicer are perfect.

      • 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
