Re: Cura Supports and Simplify3D Supports

First you may want to play around with the Support Density value. A default value typically is set to 30%, that may be a little high of a value for you especially if you're printing small parts. 10% or less may be a more generous value that will do you well. Secondly, you can adjust the Support to Z...

Re: Any flexible filament toolheads still being sold?

The Dual v3 prints Ninjaflex very well! As does the Aerostruder tool head and I think the standard Taz 6 toolhead can as well. I speak from experience. Temp should be set to 225C to 240C with a speed of 30mm/sec or slower. The default profile for Ninjaflex works well. Be sure your nozzle is clear an...

Re: How to make a custom filament profile?

First select a material. You may need to look through the Categories (All, Intermediate, Experimental and Supported) first to find your material. Note , All does not include all materials for some reason. There's 2 PLA Materials selections under ALL & Supported, Verbatim & Village Plastics and 2 fro...

Re: Matter Hackers Build Series PLA - Profile

Writing down your profiles and what you’ve changed is definitely a good idea, especially with so many variables and combinations of all the settings. Some things you can do to speed up printing are: increase your layer height, increase your initial layer height(don’t go more than 85% your nozzle’s w...

Re: Duel V3 Heat Creep Fix

This is the best solution to the heat creep problem on the dual v3 and I’ve tried all the other solutions with little to no improvement. With this setup I was able to print through a whole role of PLA within a week and printing back to back to back! Previously I was practically guaranteed a print fa...

Re: [Dual Extruder v3] Filament Stops Feeding, Ruins Print, Can't get out Easily

I can confirm that the 1.5 to 2 hour mark is about the time my PLA prints would fail on the Dual Extruder v3. I doubt turning up your speed from 40mm/s will make any real difference, I use the default profile's speed setting of 60mm/s and still experience failures around the same time you do. Both e...
