Bed leveling method not working with Repetier firmware 0.92.9?

As a guess, you are using the wrong command. If set for n x n grid, you get 3 point measurement with G29, but that is not auto leveling, it is just setting Z height - based on average height at 3 ...

How should I go about printing easily removable rafts?

As comments suggest, a raft is not all that popular. Consider using a brim/skirt instead. I've had excellent luck with a 4-mm skirt, printing onto blue painter's tape. (Unless you consider it bad ...

Delta bed leveling has been dodgy in Repetier for a long time. There are a number of fixes occurring in the dev branch right now (June 2016) if you look at Github. So it's getting better, but I wouldn'...

Repetier Host stops sending commands to printer when switching Windows user

What causes gaps in small region fills and how to prevent them?

If you look closely at the slicer output, you will probably see that these regions just have outer shells, and no infill. What is happening here is that the part thickness is between 2 and 3 nozzle ...

How should I go about printing easily removable rafts?

Anet A8 Calibrated but print sizes are wrong

If you have a stock printer, your calibration values should be stock - i.e. 100 steps/mm for X/Y. Also, as an extra hint, X and Y steps should be identical since the mechanics are identical (unless ...

Is Repetier host able to do multi-material printing?

Yes, it can. I have configured it for as many as four extruders. The problem may be in the slicing, as the slicer is responsible for generating the tool change commands. One problem with the ...

Prusa I3x and repetier host heat problems

You may set the temp in Repetier but when you run the gcode it will send any of the temp settings in the file. So you may set 210 °C first but if 200 °C is in the G-code the printer ...

I use raft almost always for ABS and PLA. My favorite setting for gap is somewhere between 0.11-0.13 mm both for 0.1 and 0.2 mm layer height. By using 3-4 layers of raft I always get predictably good ...

What causes gaps in small region fills and how to prevent them?
