Printing onmetal

It might not be the most demanded thing in the 3D printing world .... But sometimes using glue to get a printed part on metal just won't cut it.... So why would you want to print on metal? Well, there is things like copper and aluminium foil that are quite usefull for decorative purposes but also to...

Re: Shrinking, warping, delaminating - ND HOW TO AVOID IT

My prints still warp like hell !!! Do they really or is just the one you try right now ? ;) Jokes aside, a simple single wall cylinder should always print fine, while a box shape can cause nighmares already. The warping, curling up of overhangs and sharp corners loving to lift off is based on simple...

Re: Shrinking, warping, delaminating - ND HOW TO AVOID IT

Heated beds VS cold ones... You CAN print even tricky filaments on a clod bed but adhesion can be a true pain, lifting areas even worse. With no heat from the bed your print cools down quite quickly and shrinkage is not just a factor to define in your slicer but a real problem in your machine. For t...

Re: Shrinking, warping, delaminating - ND HOW TO AVOID IT

What to calibrate first and how? IMHO you should start with a layer height you know your printer won't struggle with - like the standard 0.18mm. Print a cylinder in vase mode that has a diameter of about 50mm. Ignore the result unless it reall is terrible and just check how well the layers, or to be...

Shrinking, warping, delaminating - ND HOW TO AVOID IT

Be it ABS or PETG - they and filaments like Nylon just love to give us headaches... But I am not really that fuzzed about it, well most of the time anyway. Whenever possible you should select the filament to match the needs of your print. With standard filaments now in the same price ranges it makes...

Re: RFID/QR registration of lesson P.E. running

Easy maybe not... RF ID tags work on short distance. Even with greater distance you would register a runner once they come in reach, no once they cross the line. Even in the big races where we have dedicated cameras for the finish line and sometimes even laser traps it IS a human making the decision...

Re: Flashforge printer "File error" causing prints to fail

Wireless SD cards... It seems that going with a WiFi enabled SD card could not only solve heproblem with file transfers from other slicers (after fixing the start and end codes of course) but also that it could be a viable alternative in general. Sadly it seems that at leat my old Inventor won't rea...

Re: Flashforge printer "File error" causing prints to fail

The conclusions.... Flashprint sends files to the machine over Wifi, at least in my case. And when I compared the files I copied on there manually with those created over Wifi things turned ugly. In the Explorer things looked as normal as in the editor. However: Using some more direct methods to che...

Re: Flashforge printer "File error" causing prints to fail

Did I give up ? Nope ;) I noticed that if I shrink the model to anything below the 8% mark the print would come out just fine - at least the 4 times I tried with Flashprint 5.... Full size though meant that somewhere between 1/3 and 3/4 the print would fail with a file error message. Just to be sure...
