Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

Sorry, I have both thermocouples in, just have single e3d adapter. Won't use second raise3d end and it's shorter so not in the way. Both are hooked up though.

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

I just installed a single adapter but when I start back up after swapping out the heater and temp sensor wires with the ones linked earlier in the thread I get an error. Board Error Extruder switched off mintemp triggered. Any ideas on what got mixed up here?

Re: Less filament extruding

Think I found my own answer. If others have the same issue the solution is in this thread. Running a test print now but early results look good.

Less filament extruding

I recently bought and installed the DualDirect upgrade kit from Bondtech for my N2+ and installed a .40 ruby nozzle. Now when I try to print anything it seems like I am getting a fair bit less filament extruded out and of course things are working. I am using standard 1.75 pla but it's such a small ...

Re: eSUN PVA

Did you find successful settings for this stuff? I am trying it out of the left extruder at 180 and 190 and it just kind of oozes out into a tangled mess and never really lays down. I have dried it out and that doesn't seem to help. Anyone have specific settings for this?

Re: Olsson Ruby, will it fit?

Would very much like to get one to try some more abrasive materials without plowing through nozzles.

Re: Left Nozzle Strike Breaking Supports and Thin Parts

So you saw no negative effects of using cpu grease on the nozzle threads as a sealer?

Re: Consistent Failed Prints

Any tips for cleaning the hot end parts and nozzle? Small wire brush or other implement? Soak it in some kind of degreaser agent or similar? Also, the isolation tube seems to have some kind of grease on it, like cpu heatsink grease, should that be replaced after I get it cleaned? What works for me ...

Re: Consistent Failed Prints

GOOD NEWS - that is not fatal. Yup I had my can slide off the thermocouple too. Remove the can from the hot block slip it back back together and then you need to find a way to hold the thermocouple inside the can. Obviously the epoxy they used isn't the greatest but you can use a high temp epoxy to...

Re: Consistent Failed Prints

That's all workable then. I am disappointed that the hotend oozed like that because I haven't touched the noozle so it was obviously not tightened correctly from Raise and now I will get to clean it up. I guess I will count myself lucky that none of this is a complete show stopper and get to work. I...

Re: Consistent Failed Prints

What a night. Things have gone from bad to worse. I have broken one of the little tubes that stick into the hot end. I couldn't get the set screws loose because there was filament oozing from every pore of the hotend so I heated it up to try to get the screws loose and while I did get the set screws...

Re: Consistent Failed Prints

I use a 0.02mm feeler gauge. Could you have switched between ABS and PLA profiles by mistake? I tried another print with the normal pla profile and got the same thing. I should get my insulating material soon so I'll try that and reset the tip/bed distance and we'll see what happens at that point.

Consistent Failed Prints

Out of the blue I can't seem to get a single print to finish any more. I always come to the printer to find a spaghetti mess of extruded filament everywhere and sometimes the glass bed knocked from the clips. I have tried multiple filaments and this is across all my previously successful filament ty...

After updating to this build when I go upload my sliced files to the printer over the network, it sees the printers, says it's successful but when i go the printer to actually print the file, it's not there. Have restarted my printer a few times now and no luck. Have to manually copy to usb and prin...

Re: Unable to get Taulman nylon 645 to stick to BuildTak.

How about their bridge product? Do you think these settings would change dramatically for that? I have a roll of that laying around too! I'll try some test prints with these settings on the glass side of the plate with some glue and see what it does.

Curious if this worked for you. I've been struggling with nylon myself so was looking for someone who got it working.

Taulman Spool holder

Before I make one, does anyone have a model for a spool holder that will fit the tiny little spool holes on taulman nylon spools?
