FLSUN Kossel Slid3r(PE) Speed settings

by Bellboy

Does anyone feel like sharing Slic3r settings? I am looking for opinions on what works best for what.

I am having the hardest time getting the speed settings right. Cartesian printers are so much easier to get right.

Changing settings in Marlin.

by NAP1947

I warped my base plate and replaced it with one 1/4” thick. I have been trying to change my Z distance setting since but it does not seem to take.
I used Repetiere on my Mac to determine the exact Z distance from home as 308.2mm. I disconnected Repetier and using Marlin in Arduino changed the Z distance from the old 315 to the new 308.2mm, then saved and uploaded the revised Marlin code to the arduino controller. However, the distance on the LCD for Z remains at 315 causing the head to strike the base plate during auto calculation.
I have repeated many times without success, can someone tell me what i am doing wrong?
Thanks

Parts came printed wrong?

by RobertR728

The part that holds the belt as it slides up and down to move the delta arm. There are three of these belts and the belt holders. In the instructions they show that piece having a hole for a nut to go into kinda like a blind nut. Mine came and those are printed full it seems. Can i print new ones and if so where to find the drawing. I do have a functioning printer to be able to make parts.
Its very much like this part.

but mine is 2 pieces where this is one but its too small for my larger printer.
Change the scale i guess until maybe it fits. Im at a loss and dunno what to do?

Thanks for some help

Nebie question - how good is this printer?

by VRF201

Hello!

3D Printer newbie here.

Looking at the FLSUN delta printer as a way to get started in 3d printing (yes going big), but I like the way it looks.

https://www.3dprintersbay.com/delta-3d-printers/flsun-autolevelling-kossel-diy-kit

Couple of questions:

  1. Quality of the parts?
  2. Understand the board is big (does it fit under the plate with the heated bed?)
  3. Is the print quality pretty good or just so-so (I know it will need some adjustments - a lot!)
  4. How is FLSUN's support?
  5. Will it print on ABS, Wood?

Thanks to all that reply!
