Re: Prusaslicer 2.x

Re: Prusaslicer 2.x

HI Ed, I'd be interested in seeing how you print PETG. I too have switched to it exclusively on the M2. I replaced the glass/kapton print surface with a magnetic sheet system (Wham-Bam-something about concrete rabbits). I had to dial down the bed and extrude temperatures to stop the PETG from bondin...

Re: Initial Z-height in Quick Start

Thanks much.

I cheated, cleaned up the old board which already had the calibration and am using it. I also installed the T-Link switch to the power supply. Octopi is not power through that switch so I can use the CAM to see what'as going on from home as well as monitor octopi via VPN.

Re: Power to heated bed M2

My M2E board quit heating, but thermistor still worked. I found that the HB 24v positive pin in the connector on my plug was badly corroded. Obviously there was power at the plug which could be measured by touching DMM probes to the screw heads atop the connector, but there was no connection at the ...

Initial Z-height in Quick Start

I just replaced the electronics board on my M2E, reloaded the Marlin firmware, found everything running in the correct direction, homing correctly etc, BUT. The Z level reached during the Quick Start exercise is more than an inch beneath the nozzle tip. In the past, this initial level has been more ...

Re: 1st layer squish printing PETG

My version of Simplify3D is 4.1.2 I tried setting first layer height to 100% and with a layer pitch for overall print of .1200 got .12. This suggests that it works and now the only issue aside from doing the check airscape has suggested is to arrive at what a good setting is for PEX and PETG. PS: Ju...

Re: 1st layer squish printing PETG

Thank you guys,
I got the 87C setting for bed temperature from the PETG setup recommended here a couple of years ago.
I think I need to look at the offset issue, which should be revealed by looking at Z level on first pass in the Simplify3D G-Code.

Airscape, thanks for the files.

Re: 1st layer squish printing PETG

HI B*, thanks for your thoughts. I just installed a Wham-Bam removeable stainless steel with PEX build sheet system. I've been printing on the kapton glass plate the M2 came with for a few years now and PETG the last four rolls. I confess stupidity and failure to read the "instructions" But last 6 m...

1st layer squish printing PETG

This will likely be obvious to all of you except for those like me who didn't read the manual. Printing eSun PETG, extruder 247C, Bed 87C, layers .1200 AND first layer set to 97% !!!! I get mirror like finish on face set on the Kapton, but the prints are a bear to remove. I usually shear them off us...
