Cube 3D printer discussion / Re: Cura and Cube 2
« Last post by spegelius on December 29, 2016, 05:00:43 am »
I added PLA profile for Cura in github. It changes the temperature to 220 and start.gcode Type value to 1. Cura's profile settings are bit weird, apparently you need to load the profile you want to use every time you want to change it. I expected that loading a profile would add new machine... well I think the best option would be to add 2 machines in Cura, Cube ABS and Cube PLA and then load respective profiles to those machines

I had actually forgotten how tedious it is to get a print going with Cube2... nowadays my FrankenCube is controlled with Octoprint so I don't even have to be in same room. Still, I hope this helps people who have original Cube 2 printers, they do quite good job with proper settings.

I got a question about the whole procedure, so here goes. I haven't used real Cube 2 for a while since converting to RAMPS (FrankenCube), but I think I remember how it goes. Note that this mainly meant for Windows due to need to run CodeX64.exe. Linux/OSX works, but you need to manually run the CodeX portion in some Windows environment


Notes:
- the default profile is for ABS (temperature 260C). For PLA, lower this to 220C or so (Cube's actual nozzle temp is somewhat lower that what the settings is. On my Cube2 , 220 was actually 198-208 as the temperature fluctuated ~10C)
- Tune the flow with printing a hollow cube. There are instructions for this, but basically the cube should have ~0.5mm walls after print when the flow % is spot on. Some say that tuning is needed every time changing to different type/brand filament, but personally I did it only when switching from Cube filament to bulk and vice versa.

Cube 3D printer discussion / 3rd generation power cord pinouts
« Last post by Rio3d on December 23, 2016, 02:24:13 am »
Hello. First post here and about to do my first ever print soon. I just got a 3rd generation cube 3d printer but it had no power supply or cord. I figure I'll make my own. Does anyone know the pinout for the power socket? Or even possibly have a schematic of the printer. Thank you

I'm not sure what your mean by 50%? I have been using 1.75mm PLA and ABS with a standard melting temp of about 160F.

Does it need to be at 50%? I have two at 10% currently with new ones coming.
