Simplify 3D Setup Help Needed PLEASE

Posted · Simplify 3D Setup Help Needed PLEASE


I have purchased S3d on the hope it would help me print something Cura is not been helpful with.

I have managed to get a print but its not reliable I have read threads in this forum and I alter some lines to give me 20mm of material.

I have two problems

1. I cannot get the start procedure for the UM2 as it goes in cura, in Cura it primes and expels the material out and then the head moves to the side and the material drapes over the bed and trails it,and then a print. But in s3d it drops the material when the bed is coming up moves to position and then might print while I'm trying to scrape away the material which might come out or not????

2. the prime is not guaranteed if the machine is switched on from cold and i print it doesn't the material does not come out. if I stop the machine and manually move the material then its fine it will print..

what settings should i use . I'ma at default at moment except moving the material 25mm instead of the std 8mm

    Blizz thank you I have been trying to get on with s3d and I'm sure I will a few teething problems priming ect and moving into print position without the mess of the prime..



    Hi Bob,

    perhaps you found it somewhere else, but you can change the startup g-code at the script tab.

    Make sure to take the first process, in the 4th line the E value is extruded length.

    The annoyingly slow speed to the startposition is in the 2nd line the F value.

    Although... on a UM2 it might be different :roll:

      • 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
