Rule for unloading filament

I just had to post this in my local makerspace forum because a user jammed the N2 while unloading filament.

Re: Stuck in Encoutered problem? Press here to enter Safe mode afte extruder removal.

OK, since you messed with the extruder and thus the breakout board, let's go over the basics because we KNOW that is the primary fault. #1, when you turn the printer on, are the extruder fans spinning? This helps indicate if you properly plugged in the ribbon cable into the extruder breakout. If the...

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

It definitely should have a lever, otherwise the little target switch actuator must be perfectly aligned to the screw on the carriage that hits it. No, there are no soft limits or offsets to adjust. This is pure and simple hardware failure to trigger an endstop during homing. Ignore the wording on t...

Re: Y axis coupler - catastrophic failure

The "upgraded coupler" does not directly fit the printer without modification. 41DyGV9MPjL.jpg The reason is, the outer diameter of this style of coupler is much larger than the stock "spiral" type. In order to fit this coupler, it required me to use a Dremel rotary abrasive tool...

Re: Top Surface Ironing function

Also, doing more research on this function, it would be wise to contact the original developer since there was some bad blood in how the basic idea was used in Cura. http://www.3dprintingforum.us/viewtopic.php?t=705#p9886

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

No, you only do the pin swap when you find the motor rotating the incorrect way. Test first, then decide if it needs changed.
Just tight enough that you can still push the lever by hand and release the filament.

Re: Pause at height when slicing with Simplify3D or other software

Since the LCD is what handles pause here, remember it is what parses the M2000 command. The movement commands are passed to the motion board which are sent by the front panel LCD line by line. So my first thought is, it's really hard to 100% validate only from the information you shared in the above...

Re: Top Surface Ironing function

I think the key here is not just the gcode path function, but the shape of the nozzle tip. Raise 3D nozzles are sharp and pointing with very limited flat tip area. Other brands use a fatter nozzle tip that also has more actual area surrounding the orifice, and this makes a much better smoothing func...

Re: Filament monitor

I'm a bit confused here on the best way forward. My first instinct was to run the absolute latest and greatest 1.2.2 because of the Marlin core source updates that went into it. In and of itself, it printed just fine for me. I really wanted to get around to testing in more detail the filament out de...

When you say "like this", if you mean a request that is not possible since the very hardware cannot support the function?

Re: Stuck in Encoutered problem? Press here to enter Safe mode afte extruder removal.

Another reason to update the Marlin firmware is that one of the fixes is to provide a more detailed error message. That way, you can not chase your tail trying to figure out which of the 2 thermocouples is not reporting. https://www.raise3d.com/pages/motion-controller-board-firmware-release-notes Ad...

Re: Black MagiC Conductive PLA

No, because unless you added a print layer cooling fan, that port on the breakout is not connected to a fan. So the gcode can turn it on, but no fan connected or exists on the stock dual extruder. Now if you had the factory single extruder option, then YES, there is a layer fan in place the right ho...

Re: Stuck in Encoutered problem? Press here to enter Safe mode afte extruder removal.

First, the LEFT is primary and thus when you go to single extruder the ONLY one that would work unless you then also leave the printer and software thinking you have a dual extruder. Second part is, even though you left the thermocouple either disturbing the wiring you caused a bad connection. The f...

Re: Black MagiC Conductive PLA

Temps are on the "Cooling" tab of the profile and I did not see a screenshot of that tab in the pdf.
Before you even say it, yep, I know, I think the same thing every time- the cooling tab?

Re: Black MagiC Conductive PLA

If you changed physical nozzle size, did you also change that in the slicer (ideamaker)?

Did you also correct the extrusion width to match the nozzle?

Re: Black MagiC Conductive PLA

I don't doubt that the Black Magic filament is more conductive, but the cost alone, just to experiment, the project had better justify the cost. This is because if you can deal with slightly higher resistance- it seems to me this https://www.amazon.com/Proto-pasta-CDP11705-Electrically-Conductive-Co...
