Re: Not reaching temperature

Note that the first three items in the "wiki" (Mechanic Tips, Software Tips, and Print Defects) are content-free - not linked to anything.

Also, PID for the heated print bed is missing.

Re: Error in iM printing sequence

"... set a point as the first point to start each new layer so that the one model will be always print earlier than the other."
Good workaround, but it shouldn't be necessary, and I need the start points to be random, not concentrated into a z-scar running up the model.

Error in iM printing sequence

I am writing to point out an obvious iM error in slicing that creates print quality issues, and which has been corrected in all three of the other slicers with which I am familiar (Kisslicer, Cura, Slic3r). The issue appears when you have a print with two small pieces being built up. iM will print a...

Re: Marlin 1.1.0 Unofficial firmware version 1.2.1.1

The Stop issue may be related to the Use Fast Stop setting. It works OK with 1.1.1, but hung the machine with 1.2.1.x

Re: Retract filament at end of print?

I did just did a filament change using the cut-and-chase method suggested by JetGuy.
I disconnected the feeder tube at the extruder, and fed in the new filament through it. Worked OK, but takes quite a while while it extrudes a couple of feet of plastic thread.

Re: Marlin 1.1.0 Unofficial firmware version 1.2.1.1

I've found two issues with this SW - both versions: - The heated buildplate will not get all the way to the set temperature. Watching the red light reflected from the back of the buildplate while heating using 1.1.1, it stays solid red while heating. With your 1.2.1 and 1.2.1.1 it flickers and never...

Re: Retract filament at end of print?

My experience with Unload has been poor, even with the Bondtech extruder. It usually heats up to temp and begins running the extruder, but it does not actually withdraw anything without me pulling hard on the filament.

Re: Retract filament at end of print?

One that some folks follow is they NEVER unload filament ever, they use the cut and chase method.

Now that's interesting - I had not come across that approach, and will give that a try. Thanks.

Re: Retract filament at end of print?

Then one could retract 25mm or so, and greatly ease filament changes later, while still having filament filament purged, simply by tuning the pre- and post-print gcode. I have found it difficult to remove the filament later if I let it cool. Apparently you have heat up the whole plug of hardened pla...

Retract filament at end of print?

I'm wondering whey the N2 doesn't retract the filament a few mm at end of print, before turning off the heater? Similar printers, like the Ultimakers, do this. Seems like pulling filament back out of the hotend and heat barrier tube while still hot would avoid issues with switching filament later, n...

Re: Have these issues been addressed?

One issue I did experience was that the edges of all the doors and their openings were so sharp that they would actually cut me. I solved the issue using a deburring tool to shave the sharp edges. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003JY7MDW/ Also, the front door is warped - it needs a stiffener to k...

So Weld Vertices is there to create errors? What is the purpose of this setting with no Help to explain it?
