Title: Share your Gcode!
Post by: kengdahl on Apr 24, 2015, 06:23 pm
One of the good ways of calibrating a printer is to print the same G-code on a similar printer and comparing the results.

I propose that you post your Gcode bellow (in a link) and attach a picture with the results.

This could be booth to help others and get help with a tricky print.

Great idea. Will do as soon as I get my Materia up and running. Still in assembly.

So, let's start with something easy: the classical calibration cube.
It is one of the first objects I printed (the first had too thin walls and broke when I removed it from the print bed :) )

Print settings:
perimeters: 3
top solid layers: 3
bottom solid layers: 3
layer height: 0.3mm
infill: 10%, honeycomb
temperature: 185°
first layer temperature: 200 (I had best results for first layer with this instead of the default 230)

Print time: 5-8 minutes, not sure

I modified the printer with a heated bed set-up as discussed here, this is IMHO the only way to get something flat in particular when there is a lot of contact area

Thank you all for posting your prints :)

I have produced a M6 wrench a small four prong wrench with the Materia 101 that produces consistent copies.
The G Code can be found at:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/v89odickmt257co/M6Tool.gcode?dl=0 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/v89odickmt257co/M6Tool.gcode?dl=0)
I will post  picture as soon as I figure out how.

The picture can be found at DropBox:
(https://photos-4.dropbox.com/t/2/AACUs9aqpm38omIRaXycABwcTp-uL_3CUDa7OHhkID-xQQ/12/381022960/jpeg/32x32/1/1435071600/0/2/Small%20Wrench.jpg/CPDl17UBIAEgAiADIAQgBSAGIAcoBw/TNylLzCzGQdZXCIFhtQAXP6Tdt9QXDRSwKoTxVh_jC8?size=1024x768&size_mode=2)
The code runs for about 9 minutes and can confirm your machines consistency. It can also be used as a 6mm wrench for your tool box.

Reply and Attach it. Might have to resize it down if it's too big.

So I tried printing the 3Dbenchy boat (http://www.3dbenchy.com/) with the Materia and I'm quite happy with the results

Here is my Gcode (https://docs.google.com/a/arduino.cc/uc?id=0B2bqiaE1rzP7cXFVRGhqWFhDS0U&export=download)

I tried to print this cube and it starts off but soon ends up on a wild mess of filament strands, the extruder head gets clogged up with filament. But it does something that's the good news :)
Need to sort out what is wrong. Thanks for sharing!
