Restarting a print with cheap laser scanning ($60USD)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Restarting a print with cheap laser scanning ($60USD)

Thats pretty cool. I would like to see it finish a print instead... Like resuming with the missing layers.

gr5 pointed me to Pronterface for this but did get time to look at it yet.

From GR5:

 

It's not too hard to continue a failed print - most important thing is to keep the bed hot so the part doesn't pop off when it cools.

 

First you need to use pronterface to find the exact layer to continue on. Pronterface is here:

Gr5's method works if you can keep the part attached to the bed.

I thought this one was interesting because they used (double sided I presume) tape to reattach the part to the bed to continue.

Yeah, it would be interesting to see how well the system handles the translation when finishing a failed print instead of printing on top of another print. You can see that the point data isn't perfect so you wonder about the accuracy.
