Re: Always the same spot hard to remove print

One hint is use hairspray or glue stick, not to hold more but the opposite, to act as a releasing agent! It really helps

Re: Trouble with extruded filament accumulating on nozzle

insulation is done several ways, some, John, use an insulated Silicon tube, that made me crazy. I use ceramic "tape" (paper) that I cover with Kapton tape. Check uTub for vids, I will try to post a quick tutorial when I have time.

Re: Raft Adhesion Issues

the buildtac sometimes just stops working, clean it very well with alcohol to make sure to get off all finger grease. You may need to spray with hairspray. Plate temperature of 50C

Re: IdeaMaker Supports so close together?

I never use pillars smaller than 4mm, I like to use 8mm and have some bridging since support pillar falls are frequently fatal to the prints

Re: IdeaMaker Supports so close together?

fwiw I always place supports manually, EXCEPT for large flat areas, since it is so dependent on material temperature and geometry

Re: Auto stop when finished print + bent shaft

my shaft was bowed, not bent as the pulley alignment was off! Once I realigned it, it sprang back straight!
