Ok, mine isn't limited to thin walls. Yeah, editing g-code is above my pay grade.

Re: LAYER START SETTING PRO 2

I have recently begun experiencing Z seam artifacts as well. I noticed mine after servicing my extruder after a clogged nozzle, and wondered if I reassembled it such that it is now out of "tune". However it is also around the time I installed the latest version of ideaMaker and the latest ...

For what it's worth, the issue is occuring with both extruders.

Re: What is the cause of these surface artifacts?

3D printing isn't plug-and-play. A different material color, different brand, different moisture level ... or just a different spool sometimes. It will do you good to play with the retraction settings and learn what those settings are for. Thanks. I am aware that it isn't plug-and-play (not sure ho...

Re: What is the cause of these surface artifacts?

What printer are you running? You need to look at your retraction settings. Retraction, retraction speed, extra restart (might need to add a little negative there) and coast will all impact extra material that the perimeter start point. Hey - Thank you for your reply. I am using a Pro 2 with a more...

Re: What is the cause of these surface artifacts?

Those should be Layer start and stop points. You can adjust the seam position to fixed for a straight seam line. Hi Vicky, thank you for your reply. I am not sure I understand. Also, I should point out that this issue is new, and has not occurred in the past, at least not to this degree. Here is a ...

What is the cause of these surface artifacts?

Any idea as to why this print came out so poorly? Prior to the print, I cleared out a jam/clog and replaced the front fan. Z offsets were adjusted as well. Pro2 using Raise3D PLA. More or less stock "speed" template, with a few tweaks, (namely infill reduction). Thanks. EDIT - I just reali...

Re: Assistance needed - Removed hot end because of clog - what is this part?

You should be able to pull the filament straight down to remove it while grasping it with pliers. If not, remove the two screws that secure the Extruder and lift it up to get at the other end of the filament and pull from there. The small (circled) screw adjust the height of the Hot End. The larger...

Assistance needed - Removed hot end because of clog - what is this part?

My print room got too hot and I have experienced a clog while printing PLA. I've removed the nozzle assembly, and not only is there a stuck piece of filament sticking out that I am unsure how to remove, the part in which it is sticking out from is loose. Both screws turn easily. Is this supposed to ...

Re: Looking For Settings Advice Printing PPE Frame For Volunteer Program

If we could also get the .STL file for this model? 1mm nozzle has difficulties printing solid fill for small geometries such as these bands. Something that might help the gaps a little is lowering the Z-offset however that will make the parts more difficult to remove. https://www.dropbox.com/s/k80c...

Would you like to help double confirm the Z offset is set properly first then print a test cube and show me the extrusion width of the first layer?

Re: Looking For Settings Advice Printing PPE Frame For Volunteer Program

I was printing this exact same model (3Dverkstan, right?) on my Pro2 and N2 printers out of PETG with a 0.8 nozzle. The key for me to getting that flat area right was to set the first layer flowrate to over 100%. 106% was the right figure for my setup, which was as follows: Raise3D 0.8mm hardened n...

Would you mind to also share your gcode file here? So that we can have a better understanding of the structure of the whole model. Hi Vicky, I've moved onto another piece of PPE and have parked the frame project, as the program has moved onto asking for mask fit straps. I can't seem to get a print ...

Re: Layer Shift Pro2 - Assistance Appreciated

I can't say for sure that you're running too fast, but a 1mm nozzle is pushing more than 6x the plastic going through the factory .4mm nozzle. That a big demand on the hot end and I think you run the risk of extruding plastic that hasn't hit the set point. As I mentioned earlier, I ran a 1mm nozzle...

It's called Vertical Offset Top for material building on top of support. Vertical Offset Down Layers for support that starts on top of the build. They will both have the same layer thickness, so ... yes. Great, thank you again. Hi Red, Did you manage to sort this out. Im starting to have the same p...

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

How do my speed settings strike you?

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.
