Hi Netwolf
Possible print size is long, but, as it has two independent arms, I may set it up as two printers.

First make it work!


Hi Bojan
Another fan of H. Rider Haggard, or did you acquire SWMBO from Rumpole?

First I printed the sample horse head file, which came out nicely and had good adhesion to the bed, came away with spatula after cooling. Next I tried a Rocket from thingiverse, sliced in S3D scaled down 50% 0.2 layer height and enabled Vase mode , took 24minutes to print. Even though i set no raft or supports, there was some extra filament printed around the base which came away easily. During the first layer i noted one of the legs was being printed hollow while the other two were solid, not sure why this occurred.

Looks OK but how do i make it more smooth? Is it increase the layer height or decrease?

I've now printed a few things. The best so far is a bahtinov mask for my VC200L.
Made in 2 pieces to fit on the printer base as it is only 200x200mm.
I'm very happy with it. Currently I'm printing one for my C11 but in 4 pieces. At about 4 hours/ part it takes some time.

Wow Terry nice mask. Are yoy using PLA or ABS ?
i have one concern with the leveling ans the forces being applied to the y carriage. it took me 3 4 itterations to get leveled at the four corners. but each time ur pushing or pulling at the under carriage which does not look very strong to me and might warp.

tried to order esun pla plus but its out of stock

Just PLA at 200deg
It took me only 2 goes to level. I note that when you turn the leveling knobs it will sometimes move the entire plate a little laterally on the top of the spring. This worried me but when I check it doesn't seem to affect the leveling.

I really dont like this method of leveling, i am not sure why but it pesters me. Like there must be a better way, i dont mean full automation but i am sure it will come to me one day as i tinker on.

On my unit i am seeing the Extruder starts pushing filament out as soon as you get near to 190, when the rating is 195. So am just wondering for prints that work at 205 or yours 200 how does that work?

Firstly congrats on getting your printer. I've only printed a couple of sample files and nothing of my own design yet but have found that printing between 190-195 with the supplied PLA is enough. Both of my prints have been very good. In regards to smoothing, what printer profile are you using?

I found that reducing the bottom layer speed helps. I think I made another couple of tweaks but can't remember what they were (it was very late) so I've attached the profile settings.

P.S. I forgot to mention that this profile is for Cura and can be downloaded from their site.
