Profile Review
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We are approximately 10 days away from capping our RC version of Cura. We would like to review profiles for any inconsistencies we have seen:

  • Maintaining bed temp after a print
  • Moving forward at the proper temperature
  • Inconsistencies between tool heads on the same material/profile
  • Any other small items the tech support team may believe is strange

We may not be able to get all items updated and/or uniform, but we would like to have reasons on why these are different between machines.

@lansky Will be joining @anolen @karrad and @adam for a review later this week. Please leave any and all feedback on profiles here.

I've noticed that the standard NinjaFlex profile for Banded TAZ 6 comes forward without cooling

PA-CF standard profile TAZ 6 Banded comes forward right after the print finishes before cooling

ninjaflex on dingy also comes straight forward without cooling

Gotcha, Ill have these fixes in soon :D thank you for letting me know

  • Each material profile should have the same part removal temperature. (CSL ABS all the same, IC3D ABS all the same, Polylite PLA all the same, etc)
    • Keep part removal temp should be on by default (Possible exception for Abrasives)

I'll be going over this at the meeting, but here is what TS found:

It looks like the silk and linen filament temperatures are to low to get good extrusion. Also the ABS profiles tend to need cooling disabled on it, to help prevent warping early on in the print.
Fan speeds on the Dual v3 are off with the Ninjaflex profile, max is lower then regular

Heat bed temp for HIPS is too low (set at 85, needs to be at 105-110),

Lower the printing temperature of Polydissolve, causes too much heat creep with PLA when dual extruded
ABS for IC3D is 210, seems low

The following filaments have their pre-heat temperature different than their printing temperature: IC3D ABS
Alloy 910
Bridge Nylon

HS Polypla high speed

cooling reg fan speed = 85

Reduce fan speed dingy petg high speed (strength)

@karrad The pre-heat mentioned above is when the pre-heat button is pressed.

The IC3D for ABS above is for the pre-heat button as well, not it's actual print temperature.

Sed picked up "mini" in "minimal" when updating banded/dingy.

Must fix before release...

TAZ 5 v2 dual does not have the same profiles as TAZ 6 v2 dual.

TAZ 6 v2 flexy dual needs PVA profile included (dual v2 profile)

@lansky I nailed down the pre-heat issue, can you let me know what machine and tool heads the reported issues were on?

I was the one that found the issue, so I can take over on that side of things.

I was using the standard Mini 2 as the machine, all standard profiles

@TyTh Thank you, I have those fixed up for hibiscus. Chances are there will be more printer/tool head combinations with that issue. I have begun a tracking ticket for those on T4461. Please add that to the pass down and we will fix them as they are reported.

okay, recap of what has been updated here:

Hibiscus pre-heat temperatures fixed
Added PVA to flexydually v2
Added profiles for TAZ 5 dual extruder v2
Fixed skirt brim length variable

@lansky What printer/tool head combo and profile for the HIPS?

Can anyone else think of what needs to be updated?

@karrad It looks to be every single printer/tool head, every HIPS profile has a bed temperature of 85.

Except for Taz 5 standard, the Taz 5 Aero has 85 but the Standard Taz 5 has 110.

Just checked TAZ 5/6 Twool head, cecropia, achemon, Mini standard, taz 5 aero. Looks like all Push hips have temp at 111c.

@TyTh @lansky @Galadriel I need details on the HIPS changes by 2pm today if it is going to be included on this release.

  • Printer
  • Tool Head
  • Material
  • Profile

The 85 bed temperature on Village Plastics HIPS can be ignored. Brent pointed out that the 85 with gluestick on HIPS is an intended change.

Sorry for the confusion all! Push HIPS in experimental is set to 111c, was checking the source and missed the experimental tag. Closing this one out, all feedback incorporated.
