Dual Extrrusion with Per-Layer Temperature Setpoints

by TPrime3797

Hello everyone.
Trying to perfect my dual printing. The model I'm trying to make has a section near the top that's a different colour than the rest. By default the printer wants to heat up both extruders at the beginning. That results in one extruder idling hot for an extended period, which is bad and ends up ruining the print when it tries to do it's part with 'baked' filament. So s3d has a 'per-layer temperature setpoint' setting which I figured would be exactly what I need. It works great if I make the temperature changes at the beginning of the print, but all the changes at the end, where I need them, are ignored. Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be?
Thank you

Slic3r/GpxUI setup for Duplicator 4S

by sonrix


I am quite new to 3d printing and I am trying to configure slic3r for prints.
The printer works with ReplicatorG as he should.

But when I use slic3r/gpxUI the printer doesn't get the right z-axis values.
The printer lowers the print bed to the bottom and even tries to start the print before it is heated.

After checking the slic3r Gcode it should at least heat and wait.
So the error probably lies at gpxUI settings.

I used following setting for gpxUI:
Machine Type: Replicator 1 Dual
Slicer gcode flavor: ReplicatorG/Makerbot

What do you use?
And is there another way to get X3G code?

Cura 2.6.0 (OSX version) with Duplicator 4S

by essb

Hi everybody!

As I'm still learning that 3D printing world, I may need some help with Duplicator 4S and new Cura 2.6.0.
Have used my Duplicator i3 Plus without any problems and I can say that I'm still happy about restults with Cura.

Now got Duplicator 4S and ReplicatorG seems too old and a bit "hard to use" for me. Does Cura 2.6.0 which I run on my MacBook Pro has possibility to use my 4S as well? Maybe someone can share their settings and parameters for that sofware.

Printer has 7.2 firmwire installed at the moment, of course I try to update it to the last Sailfish.

Thanks a lot!

Temperature variation

by enumer

Hello everyone, I'm a new owner of a Wanhao Duplicator 4s and so far I am very pleased. I'm just a bit worried about the temperature variation of the extruder. Simplify3d states that a variation of more than +/- 2 degrees can be a problem and my extruder easily varies around +/- 4 degrees.
Is that normal for a D4s or might I have a problem with my PID controller?
