adhesion issues between ABS and HIPS

can anyone give me any tips to get ABS and HIPS to properly adhere to each other? there is literally no gap between the two and I am printing both at 250 degrees (I am even trying 260 right now).

multiple issues with latest print [solved]

so I am having issues with blobbing on certain parts for certain layers, as well as significant layer shifts as can be seen in the following image. all parts are being printed at the same time (layer by layer). What I find the most odd is that some of the parts print without blobs on the same layer ...

Re: fixing heat creep in the print head

I've been having an issue with 3d solutech pla. I've made a bracket to mount a 40mm fan to the front of the print head to blow back and down over the heatsink and part. I'll know next week if it was successful as I am waiting for the fan to arrive. This won't help in my case because I am printing A...

Re: Filament winds around feeder?

just an addition to what Jetguy said, you might want to adjust the voltages of the drivers yourself, just follow the instructions in the pdf attached here

Re: Filament winds around feeder?

I have had this problem before with a soft water soluble support material that I was trying to use with ABS, I wasn't able to resolve the cause of the problem, but in order to clean the gear you will need to remove that motor from the feed assembly, it is held on by four screws that can be seen in t...

Do not print Hydrofill water soluble support material by Airwolf 3d

I have been trying to find suitable settings for several months now, with both the stock and bondtech extruders, but I have never been able to successfully print it, it is soft, gets even softer in the enclosed printer (it is supposed to be for ABS), and my spool at least has an average diameter of ...

Re: filament stops feeding partway through the print (bondtech dual)

the tool change retraction still caused a jam, and this time it was a true jam, I had to remove the extruder from the print head to clear it... I think this material is un-printable on the N2 plus no matter the extruder

Re: filament stops feeding partway through the print (bondtech dual)

ok, so I checked and there were several retractions (but they were nowhere near 12 mm) so I just removed retractions on that filament and instead put in a coast and wipe in S3D.

Re: filament stops feeding partway through the print (bondtech dual)

there is no toolchange during the period that it has been failing on, I have been trying to print the raft in the support material and then switch to ABS, but it isn't getting through the raft.

Re: filament stops feeding partway through the print (bondtech dual)

the problem is that this filament is also extremely prone to oozing, and also, I am using s3d for slicing not ideamaker, but again, I will look into all of this tomorrow. thanks for the suggestions.

Re: filament stops feeding partway through the print (bondtech dual)

the variance is actually pretty non-existent, it is .68 for the entire length, I cannot upload the video since even zipped it is too large, but basically there is just a rapid clicking after it stopped feeding. Additionally, when I tried to unload it, the gears no longer had enough of a grip and I h...

Re: filament stops feeding partway through the print (bondtech dual)

ok, it failed again, but it got much further this time, and it failed in a different way on the left extruder than the right one (it shredded more at the gear point but didn't form the spiral at the end of the filament) As I said before, the filament is actually undersized (1.68 mm average) so it is...

Re: filament stops feeding partway through the print (bondtech dual)

I haven't tried printing other materials on the left extruder, but I have prited ABS on the right extruder successfully, the filament is actually under diameter by a bit (last time i measured it it came in at about 1.68). The filament was sitting in a container full of silica gel before trying to pr...

filament stops feeding partway through the print (bondtech dual)

So, I was having this problem before I upgraded to the bondtech extruder, but I was really hoping that the upgrade would fix the issue. I am printing Hydrofill support material in the left extruder at 230 degrees with a 90 degree bed, as you can see in the following picture, it starts printing just ...

how to change E-step value in simplify 3d

So, I just installed the bondtech dual extruder on my n2 plus, and it says to add a line to my gcode to change the E-step value, how do I do that in simplify 3d, the line is
M92 E415

I just don't know where to put it, I already changed it in settings on the touchscreen.

why is the touchscreen rubber cemented onto the printer?

it seems like the three screws hold it in place just fine, I was trying to replace mine today (the top left of the screen is non-responsive) and was worried that I had missed some screws when it was extremely difficult to remove.
