    set up a 10mm cube floating 110mm off the bed. printing at 0.05mm and 1mm/s speed.

    Worked a treat :-)

    It's actually easier than normal loading as you can change the extruder temp to whatever...

    yeah was thinking something like that.

    Was also thinking along the same lines as whirly bird.

    Can't see why not, I can start a print in mid air and set it for very slow print on a small...

    Never get gaps in my top layers.
    Just One advantage of printing hot. The plastic flows better, bonds better and gives stronger prints.

    As far as calculations go - you're over thinking it. Leave...

    With s3d I keep my multiplier at 1. I measure the extruded diameter of the filament and that's the number i use.
    With the pla I usually use it does extrude at 0.4 So that's my defualt.

    lowering temp will have adverse effects.
    Stringing with pla - should not happen.
    You need to try Cura and have a look at the retraction settings.

    Think my pla settings are 2mm and 60mm/s...

    yep flashprint is pretty good.

    You could also use an older version of makerware desktop.

    Simplify3d - is excellent and worth buying. But flashprint is pretty good, cura knock off I believe.

    And if you are prepared to give up after just the one day - perhaps 3d printing, in its current state, is not for you.

    just out of curiosity - what have you got against ebay ?
  11. Can I change the speed of filament loading in Sailfish 7.6 ?

    reason being my klic-n-print has modified extruders for flexible filaments, but I still have problems loading ninja and filaflex.
    And the main reason is that it loads filaments too fast and the...

    yep definitely a corrupted x3g file.

    reslice and check your sd card for dodgy sectors.
    In fact try it via usb that way you can determine whether it's the card file or slicer.

    Most of the succesful 2 in 1 sustems I've seen use a needle valve to switch between the two filaments to stop merging. How are you planning on seperating the filament at the nozzle end ?
