Re: Extruded filament curls under...is this the root issue?

In the event the filament is undersized (say a 2.8mm diameter) and the slicer was set up for 3mm diameter filament you will be under extruding which could cause issues. The filament grinding could be from the idler being too tight or an issue with extrusion. There might be a bit of a clog, or your h...

Re: Extruded filament curls under...is this the root issue?

What is your nozzle size and layer height? Seems a bit much, or you are under extruding a lot (due to improper filament setting or loose idler perhaps)

Re: Auto bed probing and compensation with G29 Development

square: You are not. I do not see the Auto_Bed_Level branch anywhere in that git repository anymore and I also get a 404 error. Maybe geneb is getting a cached page and needs to flush his cache? (ctrl+f5)

Re: Auto bed probing and compensation with G29 Development

Auto leveling has been added into the main branch of marlin for awhile now. I haven't tried to see if it works well with this method, but seeing as this just requires special start g-code that is made by the slicer I don't see why it wouldn't.

Re: LulzBot 3D Scanner

I think that a washable opaque spray coating would be ideal for translucent/transparent objects. The less refraction/sub surface scattering the better for this form of 3D scanning :)

Open_CV is an open source computer vision library for programming. It can be quite useful for various applications involving image processing such as this :)

Re: Casting in metal from printed parts!

Definitely an interesting technique. Mostly for things that can't be easily machined due to their shape :)

Re: Would Like To See

Most likely that will not happen with the stock "print" functionality of programs as those send a 2D projection of what you want to print to the driver. What you would need would be a plugin for each program that can either send the 3D model to the driver to be sliced/printed, or slices the 3D model...

Re: TAZ dual extruder mod files

I haven't used octopi yet, but the changes to slic3r were easy enough. Just make sure that you set up each extruder properly. You will have to make sure that your layer height is set to a maximum of 80% of your smallest nozzle :!: I'm not sure if it is fixed yet, but even if you set everything to be...
