The manual specs out the weight of printed parts at 3.7KG, Starting with 4-1KG rolls will get the job done assuming that you don’t have too many failed prints.
Are you using the supplied corner supports? They are in the STL folder “corner support.stl”
That worked great, I’ve seen them out of order many times and never had an issue. I did not know that they could be arranged by dragging, the other day I tired dragging the model parts around in the list but that did not work. This should be already arranged in the factory files when we get them:)
Yes, you can edit G-Code, it’s an ASCII file that does not need to be compiled. I use Notepad++, Google it, it’s a free download.
There are a couple different feed settings, one is the rapid movements, extruder feeds and then there are the XY feed rates. The problem is that there are many different speeds for the feed rates, first layer speeds are slower…etc. That is going to make it hard to edit properly and don’t recommend that.
On our printing systems I can control the overall percentage of speed and feed rates with the console, you might want to check into that.
The annealing on the bed has work for me. Here is a video that shows how I do it-
Looks like you are having some serious bed adhesion issues, unless that is your camera distorting the image. I’d work on that first, your first layer settings are most important. Once you get some good first layer prints, try slowing down the print.
I just ran into the F4U_wing_L_3A crash also. It has 3 processes, if you remove the wing2per_top process which starts printing at 108mm it slices fine. It is a necessary layer, it adds 3 Top layers and 2 walls. I tried fixing the mesh in NetFabb, still no luck and it’s also the same crash issue for the right panel. I imported a 150mm tall cylinder and it still crashes using the same 3 processes.
Here is a work around, slice it in Simplify3D-3.1.1 and it slices without errors. It must be a S3D 4.0.1 issue.
To remove the flashing traces that appear as white residue on the parts, you can use a very thin oil (sewing oil) on your finger and rub it onto the areas. The flashing will go away, just make sure that you clean that area with alcohol if you need to re-glue.
FWIW- The BSI brand is the best CA available! The Amazon link is a great price.
Here is another source for pushrods.
I use Stainless Fishing leader, between 200lbs-300lb test
Is this the part you are questioning? Its a servo cover…
The little “V” shaped tabs are to be added to the trailing edge of wing parts to assist in holding them down on the print bed. The first time I saw them used in Factory files was in the QTrainer. They snap off after printing and pose no problem assembling parts.
Sorry for the delay, here are a set of V3 tips that I designed. They print with a single wall, same as the original wing tip.
It depends on the KV of the motor, here is some testing data for different KV’s using a 3S setup-
