Re: Upgrades and Firmware revisions we'd like for the UP300

I cannot print 3 different projects because I cannot adjust the slicer settings. Project 1: 3D labprint aircraft. Project 2: a thin wall boat print. Project 3: part involves a slanted overhang, and the supports bind (I've tried various upstudio support settings.. nogo) So for me: 1. GCODE Support. 2...

Re: Strange noise and behavior from the calibration tool during printing

Does it sound like this?

I wouldn't worry about it. its just servo noises unless something is blocking the probe from retracting completely.

Re: USB inside the Case

Well its super convenient if you ever put the aftermarket open source smoothieware CPU into it and run it with octoprint. Octoprint is a open source print server that can provide a live feed of the print via the app or your browser, it can even render timelapses its pretty nifty I've used it for yea...

Re: ABS warping on the larger build plate.

Another method I've found is ABS juice (acetone + ABS to make a slurry). Not thick, it should be thin so don't add too much filament. Then put a teaspoon of it on the perf board. Spread it using the spatula/scraper tool. Rafts will stick like a :twisted: but still be removable and all the crap scrap...

Re: USB inside the Case

It only has 5v supplied to it. I guess you can hook up a wifi camera to it or some other accessory? I have no idea honestly.

Re: UP300 - 1 week - first impresssions

Some updates on my UP300 printer: The leveling servo stopped working. I manually deployed it, forgot to put it back up and well, it broke off the switch lever. Tiertime finally responded to my request to have gcode importing added, they said, maybe later. Not at this time. UPStudio slicer got an upd...

Re: UPStudio G-code Tutorial

I'm eagerly awaiting UP300 Gcode support, though a DuetWifi is starting to look like a very tempting alternative... Would have to crimp up a few connector adapters and put in the axis offsets/directions. PID tune the heatbed and hotend - all easy enough. The tricky bit is not being able to mount the...

Re: Slicer

I've put in a ticket with support requesting exactly what you're asking for. They told me: Hello It is sorry that the UP 300 can not support printing the gcode files now. Regards <support persons name> I've asked for them to please look into it because it can't take that much time to just put that i...

Re: ABS warping on the larger build plate.

Try increase heatbed temperature to 120c, and let it preheat for a long time. Ideally you'd have ambient temperature really high, some people put a towel over it to increase internal temperature. When its 27c in my printing room, and its preheated for a long time, 120c, ambient inside is 60c. EDIT: ...

Re: Serious problems with infill bonding.

TierTimeBrook, but thats just a band aid, why not change the infill overlap distance in UPStudio's internal settings?

In Simplify3D you can change infill to perimeter overlap %

Better yet, allow Simplify3D GCODE to be imported to UPStudio for UP300

UP300 - 1 week - first impresssions

Here is my thoughts and review of the UP300: Build quality is great. Its a sollid well built H-bot belt configuration with belt tensioners fitted. Very good. Great cable management. I'll be hard pressed to break this even with the thousands of hours that I will be clocking up over the coming years. ...
