Re: M3-ID Octoprint 'Still stabilizing'

Hello James!

Is this issue happening on every gCode file that you're slicing?

Re: Octoprint module SD card access?

Hmm, I can't find that option in my Octoprint settings menu. Can I buy another clue? ;-) No need for any quid pro quo! There are two ways you can safely do this: The first method is much faster, but it requires you to backup the entire 16gb SD card. This can be done by using a program like or simil...

Re: Petg extruding problems

In that case, I can't imagine the filament or temperatures would be the cause of the issue.
I would try performing a cold pull after cleaning out the filament drive.

Re: Octoprint module SD card access?

You could also backup the current state of OctoPrint from within the OctoPrint Settings. While this may not be as full-proof as copying the entire image file, it's a great option if you'd like to easily revert back to a known state after making changes to the OctoPrint server. It can be found by nav...

Re: Petg extruding problems

Hi Ringrosa, How long has this spool of filament been open? What temperatures are you printing at? It sounds like you have a clog in your hotend that is causing the extruder motor to grind at the filament. I'd recommend trying a cold pull to see if that resolves the issue. https://makergear.zendesk....
