Re: Adjust steps/mm for filament load/unload

If you disable steppers you canpush it in by hand but its a bit jerky and when you go through all the premelted stuff it stops, appropriately.

Re: Stops extruding after first Shell

My hints are:
1) before any print, unload, snip off ALL bent filament, reload and start printing immediatey. Yes, I have prewarmed, leveled and loaded filament, checking how it flows. THEN unload, load and print.
2) print at 10mm/sec, evenfill
3) use brass nozzles only

Re: First Layer Height/ z-home nozzle gap

the gap you need may differ from material to material and build plate to build plate. currently, I'm printing in PETG on a carbon fiber plate and I need 100um z gap since 200um didn't stick. To get that, I have meticulously leveled the modded bed.

THats a great idea Vicky, we can move the build plate over several mm then clip in place.

Re: Occasional Streaks

Some disagree with this, but I find that a gradual loss of extrusion can be fixed by burning out or replacing the nozzles. [I hypothesize that this is because of all the dust in the air being attracted to the filament and the junk that won't make it through the nozzle building up inside the nozzle. ...

Re: Temperature does not rise

Roy93, not sure if I am seeing this right but it looks like your isolation tube might be out too far (this is NOT likely the problem with tenperatures), the arrow is right in the way to see but make sure that the shoulder of the isolation tube is about 1mm higher than the top of your hot block. If n...

Re: What causes filment to curl back around nozzel and stick to it?

Mecha has great advice. Just burn out your nozzle, not the isolation tube (yes you CAN do that but it may destroy it, never do unless you have a spare sitting around). However, I HAVE had to burn out the hot block once from a nasty loose isolation tube and melted filament getting into the thermocoup...

Re: adding casters to the N2

My N2+ has casters. BTW one piece of advice, buy some wood shims, like you use for squaring window or door frames, from your hardware store and use them to even out the load on the casters to make it level with no torquing the frame.

Re: Heat Creep Issue?

One question from the pictures - did the filament get wedged behind the knurled drive gear? 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?
