Re: How to use ninjaflex and onkly get topless results

I don't remember the temperature. Drafts play havock especially AC cycling during the summer so close the doors. If temp too low it will jam, if temp too high it will jam in isolation tube = MUCH worse. start with a calibration cube increase Z ht to 8cm, single shell no top layer print in spiral mod...

Re: Clogging during a print

BTW I have found that I can't use makergeeks pla for this reason, 2 complete isolation tube clogs - one teardown pulled my thermocouple apart because the leads are too short.

you may want to try another brand of PLA, raise PLA is the best I have used

Re: Hemp Grinder

suggest you switch to petg -its food safe and a lot tougher. if PLA gets at all damp it will start to disintegrate.

Yeh we are having complete failure on all makergeeks pla on N2+ and flachforge creator pro. Seems to work on an i3 clone. (we have 10kg of it in various colors)

Re: Clogging during a print

the ends of the guide tubes get narrower over time, snip off the last 2cm and try again.

Re: Noob please help can not print items that require supports.

First start with the 2cm cubes, play with print bed temperatures and see how well that sticks. Often things dont stick when your first layer is too high or too low or the bed is too cold (I use a 60C setting on this printer for PLA)

Re: Max heating temp for standard nozzles

Hey Leigh, this post is going to be missed because you tagged it onto the end of another thread about max temperature for nozzles. Totally unrelated! So I suggest you copy it and make a new thread of your own, that's ok. Also, may I suggest going through the idea maker manual tuo understand about th...

Re: Project: The next heated bed

excellent mod. 3 point leveling is best but impossible unless you have such a strong plate, which needs a stronger heater! I also like how you extended the plate foreward, its a shame to waste that front 12 mm of printable area just to have clearance for plate clips. well done

Re: problem with spiral vase mode

check again, that is a layer change to test do the test cube, increase Z ht to something like 6cm, print 1 outer shell 0 inner shell 1 bottom and 0 top layers in vase mode. You may have been hit by the persistent bug in ideamaker where often settings you select aren't applied/ remembered until you h...

Re: Changing a second model into a support

I occasionally model my own support - usually a tree and branch structure. You nee a program that can do mesh editing (like Blender) and you just start by extruding and tapering the faces that need support and taper all these branches, bring together into a central "trunk" and extrude down...

Re: How to use ninjaflex and onkly get topless results

This is the MOST DIFFICULT filament there is to print, You must play with the settings quite a bit. TIPS: you MUST unload , snip off the bent parts and reload for every print even if it is just a few minutes after the last print. NO retraction! Left nozzle only (yes I have dual extruded with flexibl...

Re: Clogging during a print

black junk can be ash from dust sticking to filament. It is burned up in hotend but won't pass through. Try removing nozzle, heat to cherry red with a propane torch, blow out all the ash and send a tiny wire through the nozzle before replacing.
