@macks1819 So if its not listed its pretty easy to figure out. ABS has a density of 1.04g/cm3 So 750g are 750/1.04 = 721 cm3 so the cross section of the filament is circular with a diameter of 1.75 that is a radius of .875mm so applying r2*PI - about 2.4 mm3/mm of filament or 0.0024 cm3 per mm 1m = 1000mm so 1m = 2.4 cm3 of filament 721/2.4 = aprox. 300 meters on a 750 g 1.75mm spool or about 400m on a 1kg spool. Now you can do the math for a 2.85mm or for PLA where the density is about 1.27g/cm3 etc.
As you are paying by weight you are getting about 25% more prints out of ABS then you get out of PLA.
@lhawes You might have some PETG on your hotend where its not supposed to be and it heats and falls off. See if you have some filament between the heatsink and block or some around where the nozzle screws in - then you have a leak inside the hotend and it will get worse. You probably will either have to do a real good cleaning and reassembly job or replace it
Would love to look into specific issues. If you are willing to post to GitHub your profile and a model (either a link or a zip) we will look into improving the speed.
I know it is easy to create a case that is slow, but it is much more productive and inspiring for the team to be working on a real problem someone is having. We release a new build about every month and there have been many dedicated to improving the speed of a specific case.
Thanks for reaching out.
@borogove If your stencil is lets say 1MM thick and you print with .2mm layer height thats 5 layers so as long as top and bottom layers add up to 1mm (or more) it does not matter. Infill pattern will be used for the pattern youl use to fill those layers in. If top and bottom layers add up to equal or more than what the thickness of the stencil is then infill % has no bearing - IDK what slicer you use but it shouldn't give you an error so report it to the ones in charge of the slicer.
IDK what you consider large part But here is how I print most Nylons successfully should be true for NylonX too as the warping is caused by the Nylon My go to Nylons are Taulman 910 and Hobby King CX12.
1.) I got the Bed at 85
2.) I use gluestick on top of it
3.) I print directly from the print dry
4.) I got a sheet of plastic draped over both the print dry (homemmade food dehydrator conversion) and the printer
5.) I don't take the part of the build plate until it cools down
As for size
The ringgear/hub is about 130mm in diameter the gears are about 30ish mm in diameter. the bearings are 608s Its all taulman 910 and printed solid with a .8mm nozzle. .8 outside perimeters 1.4mm inside perimeters 7 perimeters (less on the smaller gears) The tire of course is TPU as that gives better grip and more flex as you want in a tire. The layer height is .32
Thats it running in an ABS holder Which on the OD is an 8 inch hexagon
Its most likely based on the one I created for the Chiron and I like to lay down a line in the front of the bed as a purge to clear and prep the nozzle. You can find that in the "Start Gcode" under the ;Purge section If you want a different purge routine - change it.
I usually use Prusa Slicer to run my chiron (for many reasons) but someone asked me for a profile for MC so I did one and sent it to Matterhackers too to include it in MC (if they want which it seems they did)
