It's been a while, I have built the enclosure, and am pre heating it with a hair drier, seems to work fine.
thanks for a great system, but for me it has a weak spot, and That is The supports.
This may well be me, but I find breaking away in general is not clean, there is good seperation at the start but at the top where it adds a number of layers the seperation becomes nil.
There are some very good points, such as the perimeter.
The worse part is when you choose support everywhere, this causes a lot of problems because it chooses to fill in holes which you don't want.
It needs some way for us to be able to remove support from these places.
It needs some written file on the proper use of this.
The next version of MatterControl will have much better support generation capabilities, so I'll defer any solutions until that's released. I think you'll enjoy it when it's ready (which I don't have an estimate for, other than *possibly* later this year, maybe next year).
That's good News Ryan, look forward to it.
Seems I spoke to soon, still getting shrinkage at corners.
I decided to try a raft, though the raft stuck very well, the first layer though it attached ok to the raft I noticed that the individual thread of filament were not adhering together they were quite loose.
I tries various air gap settings, the recommended starting point of ,6 sucked, it did not adhere at all, even at .2 the loose fitting still occured, though the rest of the layers seemed fine.
Any ideas anyone.
Seems as though noone has an answer.
If you're not getting good layer adhesion, the nozzle temp is too cold.
I am not sure if it is the temperature, because, it prints ok without the raft, except of course the slight shrinkage problems.
The raft prints fine it is only the first layer that sits on the raft that is a problem.

In that case, Air Gap is what you need to focus on. Right now the value is too great. Lower it, and find a value that works.
That turns out to be true, but it does not alter the fact that the given figure of 0,6 recommended in the help file, is misleading, a more appropriate figure would be 0.1.
