Bondtech BMG, E3D Direct Drive, Simplify3D Extrusion Settings



  • Anyone have a screenshot or text of their extrusion settings for a Bondtech BMG, E3D (non-Bowden / direct) and Simplify3D software for PLA?

    Any similar setup would help as well, I'm looking for a good place to start since I'd usually used bowden setups.



  • Not sure but I got a Bondtech BMG for my floating extruder - what settings did you use on your max metal for that one?Bondtech BMG Floating



  • So my Delta has a Bowden setup with the Bondtech QR. I used around 4.5mm retraction distance, but that was with Capricorn XS bowden tubing (which lets you retract less in Bowden setups - I've used up to 6mm retraction previously).

    On my Bondtech BMG Prusa/Cartesian these are my current settings (I'm guessing it'll just differ by the retraction distance from the Bowden tube length?)

    1.00mm Retraction Distance
    0.00mm Extra Restart Distance
    0.10mm Retraction Vertical Lift
    60.0mm Retraction Speed (I may lower this to 45mm)
    0.5mm Coasting Distance
    Wipe Distance Not Enabled

    Probably start with 2mm retraction and work up to 6mm in 0.5mm increments if it's Bowden.

    Also, the Matterhackers Retraction article used a Rostock Max Delta - so it's a good source for settings: https://www.matterhackers.com/articles/retraction-just-say-no-to-oozing



  • My HEVO is running on bondtech BMG direct drive on a E3D v6 clone and S3D...
    my extruder multiplier is 1.0 on PLA and 0.98 on PETG
    retract distance @ 0.6mm and retract speed @ 100mm/s
    seems to be ok but these retract settings needed to test because of different brands of filament

    my estep is at the recommended bondtech setting @ 415

    I print at PLA @ 60mm/s and PETG @ 50mm/s



  • Interesting, maybe I should turn up the retraction speed then.

    Cool, i have Capricorn as well, can't remember off the top of my head it it's xs or tl though. Also is your QR mounted I assume?



  • @mysta It is mounted like a standard Prusa

    Curious, what'd you do with your cabling? For the big delta



  • You got some tweaks? What is the speed difference between direct and bowden on a hypercube?
