Maybe I'm getting this thing dialed in?

Now that I’ve upgraded the firmware on my Ender 5 Pro, and I’m getting reliably good prints, I decided it was time to try one of the torture tests that everyone seems to think is one of the toughest: the Twin Towers String Test. Here are the results:

Looking great.

Looks awesome. Do you mind sharing some of the settings you used ?
layer heights, print speed, retraction?

Those are the 3 tabs I have snipped so far. Do they help?

Here’s the first 5 tabs…

OK, I think that’s all the tabs from Simplify3D. Hope it helps.

Thanks for sharing

I am a new to 3D printing and still having many problems that I am trying to figure out over all. the bigest one is downloading files in the STL format and bring into cura 4.6.1 and then putting in the correct formation for the MP10 printer. Once I do that it dose not want to print on the 3D print for some reason. any suggestions

It may be your SD card? Try a different one.

Try printing this default Cat that came with the ender 3. cat3.5h.gcode (you can download by going to this link and right click Save As on the cat code)

If it prints, then you need to fix some Slicer settings (you may not have the correct printer setup.)
If it doesnt print, then it is a hardware issue and you may need to troubleshoot the physical equipment first.

My printer is a MP10

That’s impressive! Well done!

What material did you use? Can you try with PETG to see how it works?

Yes, you Ender5r . I asked because I find it quite difficult to get along with PETG, and very easy with PLA.

@Leo Right now I’m trying to learn enough about Fusion 360 to design a better adapter to get direct drive on my Ender 5. I know there are lots of them out there but, so far, I’m not completely happy with any of them.

I don’t think you need for DirectDrive.
See my post:…ro-directdrive
I still haven’t had time to put my idea into practice but I think it works.

I like it. If I can find a piece of 2020 I might just try it for my setup. Besides, it would let me avoid having to design a new adapter for the existing mounting plate.

I think I’ll try next week. But I don’t promise.

@shocky47 by 123AD, do you mean Autodesk 123D? If so, it’s no longer available.

@shocky47 Autodesk offers Fusion 360 for free for personal, non-commercial use (well, to be fair, there is a plan for startups). You have to get a free Autodesk account. Be aware, your plans are stored “in the cloud”. Also be aware that, like other Autodesk products, there is a steep learning curve (think AutoCAD). I do think Fusion 360 is somewhat simpler to learn than AutoCAD, but it’s still not easy.

If you haven’t already, let me recommend you look at
