I have a QidiTech Dual Extruder which I’ve had for a couple of weeks not, I have the following filaments:
ABS and PLA, both came with the printer and two reals of PETG, one black opaque and the other transparent.
I’ve had some success with printing but generally I’m wasting a lot of filament. I’m not sure that the default settings are suitable for all the filaments.
Initially I also had problems in getting the printed subject off the plate, in the end if was suggested to use tape directly on the plate which has helped in that area.
I’m still having difficultly with the temperatures, the defaults are 230 degrees on both left and right extruders and 110 degrees on the platform. Also the default layer height is 0.1 mm, these are all settings read from MakerBot. I changed the layer height to 0.4 mm and this has improved printing reliability, but the temperatures still seem to high.
I printed a model that took several hours only to find it curling up from the printer bed which suggests the temperature is too high, this was printing using ABS.
Can someone help me with what the correct settings should be for each material for both extruder and platform ?
