How to make the best Sauce (Post your favorite Recipes)

Postby ersdds » Sat Jan 10, 2015 12:10 pm

I am new to 3D printing. I'm sure that everyone who has purchased any make of 3D printer feels they have made the best purchase, But I know those who may purchased a HyRel Know they have made the best choice possible:) The engineering is solid and built to last. It is accurate and precise. The service after the sale is even better than the printer itself because they all really do care about what they are making and believe in what they are doing. So why don't I get great prints every time? I believe it's all about the recipes and the slicing. I know our machines are capable of producing prints as good as, if not better than, any FFF printers out there because of the engineering that Karl and Dan put in them. I have tried 3 or 4 different slicing software packages. (For my two cents Symplify3D seems to be the best but I only have a few prints with it but is is blistering fast at slicing. Things that took 30 min in slic3r were done in under 1 min.) In my conversations with the Three Musketeers at Hyrel, they all have some different ideas about slicing which added to my frustration and confusion. How could this possibly be? Then it dawned on me today, they are RECIPES, all the great chefs have there own. If you get great prints then you have the best recipe for that object and geometry. Obviously there general settings for good printing every time which Davo has just released. The purpose for this post is to try to get a discussion on what others have tried and liked and maybe tried and didn't like (sometimes I have learn more from my failures). What I do know is the new Recipes that Davo just released printed a very good NASA wrench but the most accurate and best print would have to be the new forked Nozzle for the MK1 head. It had support and intricate and small but printed well. Both of these were done by different Chefs. The Gcode for each print contains all settings that were used for that specific print. Since there are soooo many variables it would be nice if people uploaded attachments of the settings that worked or didn't work for them.
Just tried to post Gcode or Txt files but the board won't all ow those extensions?

Eric,

I will see if the board is set up to allow attachments; I honestly haven't tried it yet.

You should be able to post data inside of code tags - let me try to do so from the new forked fan nozzle gcode:
