Great, thank you. I will give those settings a try.

How do my speed settings strike you?

I really appreciate the help

Re: Layer Shift Pro2 - Assistance Appreciated

@zemlin

Layer height = 0.55
Extrusion width = 1.00
Zhop has been at 0.55 since the start. Should I up that, in your opinion?

I have since slowed everything down, and brought my fan to 25%.

My last print failed miserably, so I'm hoping these new settings will do the trick.

Ah, ok. I have been using 2 shells. I will experiment with three.

Re: Layer Shift Pro2 - Assistance Appreciated

The last parts I ran with a 1mm nozzle were in PLA and I ran them at 33mm/sec. I didn't arrive at that speed though anything scientific - just figured pushing too much plastic through the hot end could be problematic - and even at that speed it was a pretty rapid build. I used a .4mm layer thicknes...

Re: Layer Shift Pro2 - Assistance Appreciated

If there was a nozzle strike, wouldn't the rest of the print be spaghetti, as the printer doesn't realize there has been a strike (not knowing there has been a physical shift), and would continue printing where it thinks it should be? Also I didn't notice any buildup. I printed a similar piece (the...

Re: Layer Shift Pro2 - Assistance Appreciated

You have quite a lot of stringing. If material is picking up on the nozzle during the print, a glob can drop on the build and cause a nozzle strike resulting in a layer shift. On long prints I check the nozzle every few hours when I can. If it's picking up material I will pause the machine and use ...

Layer Shift Pro2 - Assistance Appreciated

Using my Pro 2 with a single nozzle - At about 4/5 of the way complete I had a significant layer shift in what appears to be the X axis. Not a bump resulting in a pile of spaghetti, but an actual shift that continued to print the correct (albeit now offset) path. As you can see I have some serious p...

Re: Resumed paused print after loading a new roll - resulted in air print - Ideas?

After you put the new filament in, did you wait and see the new filament being extruded from nozzle before continue the print? I did. However now that I think about it, it may be that what I was seeing being pushed out was remnants from the last roll, and perhaps the new filament hadn't quite taken...

Resumed paused print after loading a new roll - resulted in air print - Ideas?

Hey all - I ran out of filament last night during a print. Fortunately it was a test print using a newly installed 1mm nozzle, so no huge deal. However, I came in this morning, loaded a new roll and hit "resume print". Came back 5 or so minutes later to find it was air printing with no fil...

That is correct. I am hoping to use the 1.0mm nozzle for fast rough prints.

Re: Preparing to swap nozzle - Any last minute advice?

Attached all the instructions may can help you for your nozzle swap. Do make sure you have left an gap between nozzle and heating block then tighten the throat tube to confirm the throat tube seals well with the nozzle. Do not apply any extra force onto the throat tube when removing the old nozzle ...
