Re: Covid Mask

My first attempt printed just fine. My issue was when I had to remove it from the PEI and well it did not survive, lol. So, I put some Elmer's glue stick on the plate and restarted a print, went to bed and when I woke up had a perfect print. Surprisingly, I have had really no issues with TPU, only w...

Covid Mask

I have to wear a mask at work for 12 hours a day and wanted something that fits and more comfortable and cleanable. So, I found a mask online to try and decided to make it with TPU. I never printed with TPU before and so I did a few searches for settings. So the only changes I made were to speed and...

Re: PETG bonds to PEI like superglue!

I too have a Insta Mic6 plate and PEI, and only print with PETG. If that first layer is compressed to much to the build plate, you will never get it off the PEI. When the first layer is just right, and when the bed is cooled, the print will pop off with a forceful tap, depending on the height of the...

Re: Print Settings for PETG: eSUN Solid Black Filament

Your gap maybe a tad too large and that's why the PET is not laminating together. I am doing an Esun PET print right now and I'm getting good results an extruder temp of 247° and bed temp of 80°, I believe most of the other settings are the same as this guide. Here is a link to my Octoprint http://m...

Your longest print time

I'm trying to do a print that my president of the company I work for wanted me to try. He wants to see the quality of print that I can achieve on my printer. When I received it, I already could tell I was going to have to use a ton of support regardless of the orientation. Also, it had thin walls, m...

Here is my Ikea enclosure in my old work area, used with the above Ikea case. It works great. The material is actually pretty easy to get in and out.

Re: MAXTEMP Error

Its not likely that he is running a thermocouple to sense his temp. Its more likely to be a thermistor. Thermistors read low when there is a disconnection, so if I had to guess I would say that your maxtemp setting in your firmware is 250 or 255C and you had a bit of an overshoot with your temp and...

Re: MAXTEMP Error

I would check your thermocouple to see if it has any issue(wires) or connection. Usually when a thermocouple goes bad it reads low.
