Re: Printer failure

Wel, after reading the additions of this issue, i'd guess the break out board or the connection on the 14-pin connector could be the culprit. Of course, the ribbon cable is on top of the list of usual suspects, but this could be something else also. Is there some dark/black fabric-like tape aorund t...

Re: Printer failure

I have not much of an idea ...

Maybe the serial cable connection between the main board and the PCduino is unstable ?

Re: Printer failure

....... is it maybe to hot inside? No, i'm printing PA12 Nylon at 275C/HBP at 120C over a looooong time without missing a beat. The temp-sensor of the unused, second extruder shows between 75 and 82 C during these prints on the display and that means, chamber temperature is in that region also. The...

Re: Printer failure

Nope, no dice over the weekend. I was so fed up with several IT encounters last week, i wouldn't even want to see my computer to prepare a print or anything else. Ever tried to install W7 on a new machine with an Samsung .M2 SSD ?, no fun at all, as far as i can tell. Another IT issue yesterday even...

Re: PETG Settings

What's your extrusion width ? I'm find myself printing a lot more than nozzle diameter with good results. I.e. with a 0.4 nozzle, a print with 0.5 EW is much more rigid, my standard for bigger sized models is 0.6EW/0.25LH nowadays, often printing at 0.75/0.25 also. I even printed a part with 0.81EW/...

Re: PETG Settings

Man, i really feel sorry for you !! I have nothing to answer your question, but what i've learned moments ago is to having the camera record the whole time with audio on. It doesn't help in hindering a misprint, but if you look into the video file, you can most likely hear and then see what the culp...

Re: Throat Tube Diameter

Just to add some smart-..s wiseness ... I allways losen the knurled pressure screw on the BondTech and proceed a cold pull at 60 to 70 percent of nominal filament temperature. For loading i push the new filament down into the throat tube before securing/adjusting the pressure screw. Safes quite some...

Re: PETG Settings

It ones again failed. It’s started to lift in one corner. What can be wrong this time? Should I print with brim? ... If the print always lifts at the same corner, i'd losen the respective bed level set screw just a tiny tad. My N1 uses M6x1.0 pitch screws there, so one full turn changes bed height ...

Re: Auto - resume not working at 100% battery

Just for the heck of it, if you're already there, take it out and throw it in the freezer over night. It might not help any, but sometimes it helps. If you have some basic electronics in the closet, bring in a resistor and a standard LED and let it light until voltage is actually down to 3.7 V. Put ...

Re: Feature request for internal support or infill when needed.

No need to apologize. All good.

I just wanted to point out, writing in capitals is shouting in the internet/written form. No need to do so unless you really want to catch attention to the capitalized words.

Good news...... Raise3 just put this on the front page of the home website. https://www.raise3d.com/pages/thermal-protector-orders Really good news !! I venture the guess your endless effort in bringing this up to more common knowledge and attention finally did help with making the right decision.

Well, to bring this thread up to speed ... Finally, the cable came in yesterday, i made "the error" of ordering a cable chain with the order and this cable chain slowed down shipping time for about a week. The cable is nice, i expected it being even more sturdy than it actually is. Even mo...

Re: N1 Bondtech: How do I secure extruder wiring?

That's a IGUS E08.20.028.0 cable chain. You could probably better use the "filled from the inside(? Z-Series ?)" instead of the "from the outside E-series" but that's what i had at hand. Then it's a 4mm bracket on the chassis side, hold by the original 6mm bolt at the bottom and ...

Ok, now i have some time before hitting the sack. In the first windows which opens after hitting the start slicing button, there are two more tabs to be found above the center window, one is group and layer settings, the second is per-model extruder. When you go over to groun and layers, there are t...

Re: Thin Walls - Single Extrusion Fill?

Try to print a part with the 1.2 thickness at 0.61 extrusion width. This should give you only two shells and a solid structure.

Re: Project robot lawnmower

I sorry to hear you still have problems with the material. But, what irks me, with the goal your aiming at, why do you try to finaccle out these fine settings. Your robo mower projekt is a large built, so go big, shell out extrusion width at least at 0.5, maybe 0.75 or so, give it 0.333333 layer hei...
