I also suggest taking off the nozzle while investigating to isolate any problem in the cold end drive ( FWIW I've had drive problems after an overnight airprint - turns out the jam was all the way up in the i...

Re: Infill not consistent with TPU on a Prusa

40 mm/sec is way too fast for tpu on this big printer. Personally, I prefer the alternate layer grid with tpu as it makes the soft part more squishable. Otherwise, why would you use soft material?

Re: Please Share your Ideamaker Slicer Settings for the Dual N2

I really need to keep a log book, sigh, I almost always run tests on something as major as a filament type switch as so much depends on the moisture content of the filament and the air and temperature of the makelab and how much the AC/ Heat is switching on and off. I'll look but, again, I don't eve...

I do not recommend this, too many people will have prints pop off the plate as it cools

I tend to break fans so I've replaced mine but with the ones from raise. speed up and slow down sounds like your plug may be falling out.

Re: 0.2 nozzle settings

unless I made a mistake, the volume from a 400um nozzzle is 4x that of a 200um nozzle for the same extrusion rate! This should be handled by ideamaker under the printer settings BUT i suspect that you will need to print much slower, so since default is 50mm/sec, Id start with 10mm/sec and do a bunch...

Re: How to use just one binder clip on print bed

Nice one. A friend at make lab did this with Plexi beds and used niobidium magnets, so its self centering with a pretty nice hold but can get it off without too much prying.
