Hi all, I’m new to 3D printing so go easy… I own a company in the UK that produce 3D printed parts, our designer who did all the work and prints has decided to leave without any notice.
Now I’ve figured out Z-Suite but two products we do use a 3rd party material and although I have their settings off their website, one of them doesn’t tally with what I can set the printer too.
I’m using 2 M200 Plus machines and need to set one up to print carbon filament and Nylon… At present we have TreeD Carbonium filament and the settings are as follows:
Bed temp: 100c (once I hit 90c it warns me of warping?)
Nozzle temp: 230c
Print speed: 60 mm/s (limit is 50 mm/s)
Based on this what’s the best option? I’m also told a new perforated plate and hot end/nozzle dedicated to this and Nylon is needed? Is this a must? What changes do I need to make to one of the machines?
Next is Nylon, currently I’m not using any in particular as run out so I’m thinking Z-Nylon? Again the same question, what changes need making to let the one printer run both Carbon (3rd party) and Zortrax Z-Nylon?
Lastly we have loads of rolls of TreeD Flexmark 8 so no point me moving to Z-Flex (will do at some point) just yet until all this has been used. But can these materials be run with a standard set up? I’ve tried printing and it seems like the filament is coming out far to quickly and clogging which stops the print, however the specs suggest upping it to the following:
Bed temp: 225c
Nozzle temp: 45c
Print speed: 30 mm/s
Lastly any other tips or setting I should change when printing? I’m rapidly learning on the huff so apologies if daft questions.
Many many thanks in advance, Steve.
