Re: Consistent print failure due to poor layering

It appears PTXer was correct. After spooling several meters of the MH PLA onto a smaller spool, the print seemed to go just fine. Thanks for the help; I was at a complete loss on that one.

Re: Consistent print failure due to poor layering

Okay, thanks for the tip. I'll wind a few meters onto an extra empty spool and see where that goes.

Re: Consistent print failure due to poor layering

And yes, both of my Raise3D printers (Pro2 and Pro2 Plus) have the fans running non-stop. I imagine that's a default? I've never explicitly changed it.

Re: Consistent print failure due to poor layering

MatterHackers Pro series PLA, white.

I've played with various temperatures. This GCode is set at 225, but I've tested at 5 degree increments from 185 to 230 with no joy.

Re: Consistent print failure due to poor layering

Next attempt. It's like a few mm into any given print, we just lose a layer or two. NextLayer.jpg I'm at a loss. I've had several printers (all WAY cheaper than a Raise) that just didn't do this. I'm sure it's just some mysterious setting, but I've been into 3D printing for several years and expecte...

Consistent print failure due to poor layering

Hey Folks, I'm having a murder of a time trying to get anything worthwhile out of these Raise3D printers using IdeaMaker. Check out these images: BadLayering.png Stringing.png Notice the gaps in layering. Note how inconsistent the layers are from one to the next. Since I assume there's no hidden &qu...

Re: X-Axis motor fails on small movements

Just to close the loop here. Problem turned out to be the coupling between the motor and the rod. Tightened the 4 screws on the coupler and the problem went away.

Thanks to the Raise3D support team!

Re: X-Axis motor fails on small movements

No, the motor is engaged and you can't physically rotate the rod. There's no free play in that regard. It's more like if the motor is told to do a very small movement (less than a couple mm) it just doesn't move. As I said, I can jog by 0.1mm in X and for the first 20-30 motions, nothing happens. Th...

X-Axis motor fails on small movements

Note that this is already a support ticket; I'm posting here to see if anyone has any answers they can toss out before Raise3D gets back to me, whenever that may be. I have been getting consistently failed prints on my Pro2 due to what at first appeared to be layer shift. After hours of testing I ha...
