Re: slipping filament - motor shaft wiggly

Thanks for the images... my parts have now little marks on them also! Ah, good input about the filament path being slightly different from a hand-feed path. It is hard to see, but when I removed the roller bearing it did seem a little 'rough' down where the filament would plunge into the bottom of t...

Re: slipping filament - motor shaft wiggly

Update: 1. The filaments are partial spools I've used in the past and have been stored cool and dry with desiccant so I think they are OK. They measure 1.75 to 1.80mm depending on where I check. 2.

Re: Different looking v3b

Thanks for the reply! Back on the forum with another problem. I don't usually look at forum as I am such a noob that I don't feel I have much to contribute. I did end up putting on a V4b hotend along with a lot of other work. Someone had partially disassembled the M2!? Luckily Support was ultra supp...

Different looking v3b

Hi, I have a used M2 with no documentation. The v3b hot end it has (aside from being clogged) looks different than other v3b images I have found. Any ideas what the vintage is?

Thanks
