anyone having issues slicing a file, trying to slice a STL file and 357 layers is taking 20 minutes. Didn't do this before. I closed MC and reopened it and its doing the same thing.
Quick question about MatterControl. Is there a way when doing circles to have is start in different areas so that there isnt material oozing out from starting in the same area. Say I do 3 walls in a circle is starts them in the same location each layer causing a gap. I know cura has a setting to not do this but do not see anything on MatterControl. Perhaps there is a gcode that im not aware of.
I have a Pulse XE and print at 265 hotend and 60 bed but I have a garlite bed. I print at .1 layer height, 3 perimeters and 25% infill you don't need more than that and print speeds at 30. My prints are very clean and show no layer lines. I use the NylonX to print mounts for commercial drones which hold Lidar scanners, and other high end sensors and never had one break. They have to resist vibration and breaking as some of the units being held are over 80K. Not sure how your printer would compare to the Pulse XE but I have yet to have a issue. I have been printing 24/7 for 3 years on it.
I love my Pulse XE and use it to print NylonX 24/7 for the past 3 yrs. No issues other than a thermistor on the bed that went bad. What other printers out there that can do the quality that this printer does with Nylon. I'm looking to purchase another Pulse XE but wondering if there is something out there under the $5k mark with the same quality as this printer.
I watched a few youtube videos, its really easy to do. Just heat up your bed and slowly try and get the garlite bed off. mine broke in a few chuncks. I then let the bed cool and cleaned up the glue with 99%IPA, then take your magnetic base and remove the backing and carfully place it on the bed. As for the flexplate make sure when you put the garlite or other bed top that its 100% bubble free. I thought I got all of the bubbles out but once I heated it up after a few prints I went to clean the bed and heard a pop! A bubble. Great! I had to order a new flexplate and garlite bed and I will make sure to put it on slower starting on one side and working my way to the other. The old one still works I just try not to print in that back area of the bed.
Hope this helps you out.
I had the same issue as you. I didn't have any melted wires going to the Rambo board but the bed thermistor was bad, I didn't have my meter to check it, I just ordered 2 and installed it and it resolved this issue. It just happened again yesterday afternoon when a print failed. Found out that the cable under the bed got snagged some how pulling the bed thermistor out so that it would not read.
I feel the bed design is bad as to get to the screws you a have to remove the garlite bed and purchase a new one or do like I did and get the flexplate system. Once you do that you still have no access to the screws meaning you will have to remove the magnetic bed plate and purchase a new one. Very bad design, at least where the thermistor is installed on my bed I had to do this as the mount underneath leaves you no room to clean the old tape and makes it hard to install a new thermistor in its place.
Hope this helps or at least you got your printer back up and running.
anyone else having issues using the arrange the parts feature? I have 20+ parts and everytime i hit this feature it puts them all over and outside of the build platform, I have to manually grab all the pieces and place them one at a time on the build plate so they print properly. It didnt used to have this issue. not sure if its a patch problem or what.
