  • JD Maker Artist-D Pro 1st Look and Review is live

    Thanks to everyone on this forum for your suggestions. This is the first of what may end up quite a number of videos about IDEX 3d printers. Since I now have two of them in my shop I will be able to do a complete test of a number of techniques. I expect to cover slicers, creating models, modifying existing models, dissolvable supports, and more.

    I'm all ears. IDEX is our immediate future as far as I can tell. But I'm much older than Irv, henceforth more naive, so let's see what happens!

      Hi Irv. First, just to clarify roon4660's comment in another thread, yes, my forum nickname is Ender5r (pronounced Ender-Fiver), rather than Ender-Three-R. No biggie.

      Now, on to real matters.
      1. JG Maker recommends setting the bed parameters to 310 x 310 x 350 in Cura. Not a big deal, but an extra 10mm in the X & Y just might come in handy on rare occasions.
      2. Thank you for the info about Cura & JG Maker 'profiles'. I didn't realize you just open them as projects. I think I did do that with 1 of the files, simply because I recognized the .3mf extension as a Cura project file, but I hadn'r realized this is the proper way.
      3. Thank you for confirming that it is good practice to set print & standby temps the same. I found lower standby temps annoying so I started setting them the same a little while ago. It's good to have confirmation.
      4. Thank you for the Cura nozzle disable info. I wasn't aware of it. It's a nice, easy way to only use 1 nozzle for sure.
      5. A brief howto on cleaning the brass brush nozzles would be nice.
      Looking forward to future videos. This printer is looking very interesting.

        repost the "cheat sheet"? Consider it done.

      Thanks for the review of my review I am enjoying this collaboration and look forward to your comments. Sorry about getting your ID wrong. I have created a new forum for IDEX 3d printers and it would be great if you could repost your "cheat sheet" there.

      I just started learning IdeaMaker. It has real potential for both IDEX and traditional FDM printers.

        Great idea Irv to make a separate forum for IDEX printers.
