Hello, I have a big printing problem with my creatr HS.
I use simplify3D to slice but the difference between the theorical and real printing time is very different. For exemple, if simplify shows me 3 hours to print, the creatr will print the piece in 6 hours. I tried to modify many fonctions but anything make it. The real printing time is always twice the simplify time. I also have a Big Builder and with this printer, the theorical and real time are similar (5-10 minutes difference but that is normal).
Do you already have that kind of problem? Do I do something wrong?
Thank's in advance for answers
I got the same issue as you defined above but my time is not 2 times the amount. Something like 20% of the time. I print larger objects that take around 30hours (simplify3D) but in the end it took 36hours.
I tried smaller objects but it still had a deviation from what the programs shows.
yes calculated time is very wrong. I also tried to find a correction factor to calculate correct time I come to about 1,2 or 1,25x the calculated time.
I wanted to make a timer to measure build time and stop automatically when done. and maybe turn off printer too.
Print settings in the Creatr Software can be directly updated in under 'print'.
The latest Simplify 3D profiles can be downloaded using the following links:
Bolt - Simplify3D settings
Bolt Pro - Simplify3D settings
To use the profiles, choose File, then Import FFF Profile and be sure to select the correct profile in your process. You can also watch this video.
