Well, that's impressive. You mean, if i like to have such a beautiful pattern on my prints, i'd just to mount the stock drive ? :D :D :D

Re: New N2PLus.... shall I go BondTech straight away?

In general, there are two real big problems with any fdm-printer. First is getting and keeping the print stuck to the build plate during operation and getting it off when it's done, second is getting the filament feeded, the exact amount of filament as commanded by the gcode you deliver to the machi...

Re: Fan Mod (Extra Gcode Controlled Fan)

Hey, i got your design printed, but had serious warping issues with the filament used. Since then i haven't had a serious filament in the machine, only printing easter bunnies and such with ABS+, when i was printing at all. I checked overall design, ruling it good so far, but i stumbled over the big...

Re: Buildtak and Glass Build plate questions

1. using a painters Knife/Cutter get inbetween glass and BuilTak and try to pry/lever it away from the glass. once you got a piece loose, give the BuildTak a cut, may 70 or 80 wide, and rip this first piece off the glass, you should have a loose part left, so proceed with the next strip. Once you g...

Re: Adhesion Issues

I prefer to test one thing at a time though. One the first layer gets down without issues, then I'll address the over-extrusion issue. Well, that's what i meant ... Steps per unit, bed height, bed level adjustment, filament diameter need to be checked and adjusted if no good, the filament flow rate...

Re: Adhesion Issues

.... I'm new to 3D printing... If I was over extruding, wouldn't there be issues throughout the print? The rest of the print is turning out fine. It's just the first layer that's "ugly." Well, excuse me, but if you're new to this small part of the world, how do you judge "is turning ...

Re: Adhesion Issues

I think you're a bit too close to the bed plus you're overextruding maybe 4 percent or so. Even if you already have the standard profile for R3D PLA, you have to measure the actual filament diameter, enter it in the filament settings and then print a X20xY20xZ20 single wall (=vase mode) and check th...

Re: IM & Nozzle Diameter - I must be stupid

I often print with larger EW than nozzle diameter (from 0.5 to 0.75 mm on a 0.4 nozzle). Ideamaker always generates tool paths according to the EW, but you get a warning if you go to the extreme EW in relation to nozzle diameter. Nozzle diameter seems only to be a factor for "checking thin wall...

Re: What to do about squeaking rubber belts?

I'd avoid lubricant in my experience. You don't know long term how the lubricant affects the belt material and it's bonded layers. That's the key to these belts, the cords are the strength for not stretching, the face of the teeth has a layer of mesh that serves as the cushion layer against the pul...

Re: Power Supply keeps blowing

I can not imagine blowing up three PSU's at all, yet in such a short time frame. My first guess next to one bad unit for such a failure would be lightnings from a thunder storm, but that seems to be out of question in this case. There are number of things which coudn't be ok, what Jetguy already sta...

Re: What to do about squeaking rubber belts?

On my previous printer, i had better prints with the belts when they were lubricated. I used a PTFE spray, sprayed it into a container (the lid of the can) and applied it with a small paint brush or secured the surroundings with a towel and sprayed it carefulls directly onto the belts while moving t...

Re: Sketchy, stuttered brim but otherwise good part.

There's no setting you can change to get a better result, it's the nature of this ideamaker version and has been flagged as not good already by other users. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6299&p=26920#p26920

Re: Settings Precedence

Since you can change e-steps only before printing, the e-steps set in the g-code will override the preset of the machine.

Values which are changeable during printing will override the settings in the gcode.

Re: Printer failure

Wel, after reading the additions of this issue, i'd guess the break out board or the connection on the 14-pin connector could be the culprit. Of course, the ribbon cable is on top of the list of usual suspects, but this could be something else also. Is there some dark/black fabric-like tape aorund t...
