Printer has a mind of its own!

Printer has been working fine for a few weeks, but we went to print a job today and the extruder kept printing RIGHT ON TOP of the glass and making it tilt, and at one point, the glass dropped 2" suddenly and moved to the rear of the machine. I tried to recalibrate, but it seems as the machine has a...

Re: Clogged filament

Dale,

Here is a picture of where the clog is: at the top of the threaded screw is where it is most visible. Thanks a lot for your time.

Clogged filament

There is a mixture of ABS and PLA clogged somewhere in the Bottom Filament Path (possibly below that). I tried to push it through with a piece of PLA and with an Alan wrench. It won't budge. I don't see a solution. Thanks a lot.

Bed releveling

When I print, It seems that the left side of the bed is too high, because it makes contact with the extruder and prevents the PLA from coming out. Do you have any releveling instructions?

Thanks

Re: Printer can't connect to computer (simplify3D)

I have a Mac/M2/S3d combo, but I sometimes have trouble if things are turned on, connected in the wrong order, or software started at the wrong time. Turn off the printer, exit s3D, unplug the printer USB. Plug in the USB, turn on the printer (give it a few seconds), then start S3D. It should conne...

Large items do NOT print correctly.

Hello, When I attempt to print an item in particular, about 8" x 4" on the glass, the PLA begins to print properly, but then it messes itself up and all the PLA gets tangled. It messes up the entire first layer. What is the cause of this? It is very frustrating. Any help is greatly appreciated. Than...
