I just wanted to say that they have fixed my purge issue, and I am waiting for the Alpha to come out to test it. Can't wait, as the rest I have seen has fixed everything I had problems with in the previous versions.
Here is hoping!
Don't like necro'ing threads, but I have a CTC branded printer (Pretty sure it's a makerbot clone). Is it possible to have it added to your list of printers? Happy to export my settings out for you to look at.
I have a Robo. Where did the option for Automatic Print Leveling go?You are probably getting confused about the different kinds of print leveling that are available. Your Robo has hardware leveling which allows it to probe the height of the bed before each print. Other printers don't have this feature, so for them MatterControl has the option to use automatic software leveling. This is where you measure the height of 3 points on the bed using the piece of paper. If you try to use both types of leveling at once, they will conflict with each other and cause problems. This is why the option for software leveling is now hidden if you have a Robo or any other type of printer with a probe. For more information on the various types of leveling, and how to configure them, look at our article on Automatic Print Leveling.
@lado said in Pulse XE printing failure after Reset to Defaults and Callibration:
case. I've dry it for 9 hours, now it is dry, but sticking problem still exist. It is true, I've never used glue for NylonX till last Reset to defaults. I use raft for specific parts, but I've never tried brim. For cleaning the bed I use usual cleaning spray without alcohol, mostly to remove leftovers easier, not glue, because I was never used it for NylonX till now, should work for glue as well
I would highly recommend taking a look at our article on how to succeed when printing with NylonX:
It sounds like the STL you are trying to use is still in a zipped folder. TO rectify this, you will need to unzip the file. Once unzipped, you should be able to drag and drop it in accordingly.
I hope this helps.
My error was using default and material 1. They are essentially the same extruder. Suggest that they dump the default material and just have materials that match the number of extruders you have defined in the printer configuration.
All good and happily printing.
@erikescudero Like I said at the beginning, I jumped in without knowing the features advertised were 2.0 stuff I didn't actually get included with my download so I'm really champing at the bit for any updates at all.
@jesusposada said in support material:
hout support material the prints are bad but with support material, I can't remove it so it looks worst, how can a put a minimum support material so is easy to remove.
It sounds like you may want to adjust the Air Gap in your print to help make the support material break off a bit easier. If you are using MatterControl, the AirGap can be found under Slice Settings> Support> Airgap.
This effectively tells the printer to leave a small gap between the part itself and the support to help make it easier to remove later on.
Additionally, you might consider increasing the X Y Distance. This will increase or decrease ( depending on the value) the spacing between the support lines which might also help the supports pull off a bit easier as well. It is definitely one of those things that will require some trial and error as there is no One-Size-Fits-All kind of setting.
I would be happy to help here but I have plenty of questions, could you please clarify?
Would you be able to take a screenshot just to be sure we are both on the same page?
If you are trying to export something on your Print bed in MatterControl, you can right-click it and select Export> Export as STL.
If I am a misunderstanding your issue, please let me know.
