Re: What do I use to clean BuildTak?

I always use alcohol. This is a solvent to most bed adhesion surface prep materials because they are PVA (the A is for Alcohol).

Re: Controlling thickness of horizontal layers

Top and bottom layers on infill tab Simple math, layer height times # of layers= rood and floor "thickness" A good rule of thumb is 3 layers minimum to get a good solid roof or floor, however, 5 or more layers is recommended to not get "pillowing" over infill on roofs. Or, the 1m...

Re: Heatbed temperature regulation issue

Sorry If I sound frustrated, but I read these questions and replies from tech support and I'm astounded. I know in your first question, beyond a shadow of doubt your blew the MOSFET transistor for the heated bed, they fail often in the ON state- thus uncontrolled heater. This is well known. Worse, o...

Re: 300mm z limit

not printing anything larger than 305mm. Every time a print gets to this point the build plate simply stops lowering. I can manually move the build plate down further. If I home the build plate and tell it to lower to 320 it will stop at 305. Almost like it resets at this point. Yes, exactly what I...

Re: 300mm z limit

And the test is, via the control panel, home Z first, wait for that to complete. Then using the jog function buttons, command 400mm of Z travel (using the 10mm increment- yes, I realize that's 40 button presses). Measure with a metric ruler if the Z axis moved 400mm from homed position. If it moved ...

Re: 300mm z limit

Ok, again, let's ensure we are on the same page here. #1 your symptoms indicate a motion control firmware mismatch. The motion control firmware is what has a 300mm Z limit. At the same time- just looking at the display, you ONLY know and see the version number, NOT the exact file that was loaded and...

Re: Major Shift Mid Print

Simple skipped step- most likely from a nozzle strike hitting some warping plastic or other layer issue. Since it only was one major shift and then fine before and after- not likely the coupler or other issue- just 3D printing bad luck- what happens when you send a couple hundred thousand moves to a...

Re: Layer surface finish - segmentation

First expectations issue: #1 3D printing infill patterns on large areas are intentionally starting in one area and moving to a another to reduce and limit stress from laying large amounts of hot plastic in any one area. All plastic has some shrinkage when it goes from liquid nozzle temp to room temp...
