Re: Random Stop

If I was a betting person: #1 you may not have the thermal protector installed #2 you may not even be aware of what the ribbon cable fault does or looks like #3 1 and 2 combine to cause failures, and depending on what exact firmware you are running this may or may not ever report a screen error, ma...

Random Stop

Ran a part. Came out fine. Ran it again, same code, same everything, and the printer just stopped. Halfway through the print. Didn't home the nozzle or anything, just stopped on top of the print. No warnings on the screen. Nothing. Everything was still hot.

Thoughts to the cause?

Re: All of a Sudden...Terrible Layers

Do you have a single extruder or layer controlled fan? There is a weird "feature" in ideaMaker which I thought was a bug. http://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6299&start=40#p30429 Turns out, it was a filament jam issue. Not an over extrusion, but an under extrusion. Thanks...

Not that I know of. Maybe a cooling issue/layer cooling time in general

All of a Sudden...Terrible Layers

Ran a simple cube as a test this morning, and all of a sudden, I got terrible layers. Bed adhesion was good. No grinding or anything of the nozzle on infill. Bed was at 60 for initial layer, extruder at 195. Any ideas? Obviously I must have adjusted some setting without realizing it, I just don't kn...

Re: Printer unable to connect over Wifi

Is the printer connecting to the wifi and its not talking to ideaMaker, or is it not connecting at all? I only ask because my printer was connected to the wifi, but wasn't connecting to ideaMaker. Thought it was a firewall issue, but nothing I did worked. Uninstalling and re-installing seemed to do ...

Not Understanding Travel (Cura)

Hello! Recently switched from IdeaMaker to Cura. Ran a print this morning, and noticed it had a lot of layer shifts. Adjusted the Z height (thought nozzle was running into it), but was still happening. Took a more detailed look at the Cura layer view, and noticed this strange travel pattern that was...

If I do ignore it, the lettering does not show up in the slice preview

Re: "Not On the Build Platform"

*note: there is a "hole" or a spot for the lettering to go. I just think that the printer thinks it will be printing mid air. I just don't know how to make it print.

"Not On the Build Platform"

So I'm trying to print a model that has lettering, in a second color. So a dual color print. The lettering is on the top portion of the model. However, when I try to slice, I get the error that the model is not on the build platform. Which is correct. How do I get ideaMaker to print the lettering, e...
