This occurs when pressing the Connect button, then on the far right window appears similar to the letters y in some parts, as shown in number 1.

Then at number 2, like the first, this happens every time checking Monitors Printers and pressing the Check Temp, the letters grow continuously. Also a graph showing temperature and hotend heatbed not work.

At number 3, it is different in the Command Prompt window, a window which always coincided with Printer Interface window and there everything looks fine.

I've tried to start over all the installation dependencies and using new Printer Interface, but the result is the same and so expect help from you guys to help me, thank you very much.

I recommend using the netfabb cloud service to correct the problems.]]>

I am new to 3d printing, I just got a flashforge creator which I am playing around now. My big problem:

I get spurious (filled) layers in my builds:

a) I have designed a spoked wheel with ac3d, exported it to stl (ASCII) and imported it into replicatorG 40 (skeinforge 50), where it looks ok.

b) I have download a dummy engine, imported it into ac3d and proceeded as above.

In both cases I get additional horizontal layers in the build so that in a) the spokes are not visible and in b) the crankcase is not hollow.

I seem to get a filled layer whenever there is a horizontal face with a hole.

Any help appreciated.

in the Fill Tab you have to choose 1 Extra Shell on Sparse Layer.

The effect is, there are large blobs at the first layers since the extruder has pumped 3mm too much filament into the hotend.

If I remove the retraction command manually in the gcode, I get good prints.

In the Skeinforge generated code below, two line before the first M101 command there is a "G1 E3.15" WITHOUT preceeding retraction ==> too much filament.

What is wrong? The M101 command or the added "undo retraction"? Shall I file a bug? My settings wrong?

I am having a strange problem with my prints: when printing this part I end up with an extra wall, but the shape is otherwise fine (and actually quite nice). I tried with two versions of skeinforge and the results are the same.

For the details, this wall is the first line that is being drawn when the extruder passes from the small part to the large one. The small part is unaffected by this problem and comes out fine.

An image of the object is uploaded there, any suggestion?

the retract parameters are in the dimension tab.

I recommend to use the absolut dimension for the e-axis value.

But, i think you forgot to set the e-axis (extruder) to zero.

You can simply do this by adding the following command line to the start code:

G92 E0

Have fun...

I've got a problem (what else ;-) )

I'm quite fresh to Skeinforge but got it to work with Repetier und my K8200.

But at the beginning the gcode retracts a lot of filament, so that nothing comes out the first three to four layers (depending on the model). With the vast amount of parameters it seems I lost the overview.

Where do I set the retraction parameters, especial during the star sequence.

Than in advance for help,

Eddy

PS: Working with the last recent version of Skeinforge

This is my start.gcode:

M104 S195 ; set hotend temperature to 195 M190 S50 ; set hotbed temperature to 500 G28 ; go home G92 ; use current position as zero M109 S195 ; wait for hotend temperature]]>

in the export plugin, you have to choose "small G-Code"

All redundant commands will be removed.

Also you can remove comments.

Are you priming the extruder before you start? I ALWAYS use the manual extrude to get extrusion to start before I hit the print button, and I waste as little time as possible between the two so there is no oozing.]]>

I am very new to the 3D printing world. I am currently using skeinforge embedded within repetier. I am currently trying to print a line with dimensions of L: 20mm, W: 100um, H:100um with a 32 gauge needle (ID: 100um). As I alter the settings, it seems to be going start-->right-->up-->left-->down which is making the border of the shapes. This is a problem because it is giving me a width of 200um instead of 100um. I think it has something to do with the edge width over height ratio. Could anyone help me find a way to print according to 100um needle gauge and without borders/edges?

Thank you]]>
