Re: HIPS

I have recently tried using HIPS as support material for ABS and PLA. You remove it, (dissolve it), using Limonene. Unfortunately, the limonene also softens ABS, so that does not work. It works really well with PLA, though. I had a long, small hole that I had to print in the horizontal. I put just a...

I print lots of nylon, including with a Markforged printer. The MF does not have a heated bed, but the prints stick well with glue stick. The bed is phenolic. I also use other nylons in it with differing success. Most work fine, but also string a lot, since the MF uses a 275C extruder temp. On the M...

Re: The Dreaded Filament Drive Clicking Sound...

The drive motor and gear are much harder/tougher than the plastic filament, so I do not think you can hurt them in that way. I have often heard the 'clunking' and have found it to be from the filament sticking in the extruder, the gear cuts a divot from the filament, and the compression and sudden r...

Re: burned(?) PETG in prints

It is probably the issue discussed above, but it could possibly be in the filament before printing. I had an issue with this: IMG_0140.jpg It was several meters long in the middle of the 1 kg spool.

Re: Simplify 3d fff settings

Jules put up a pretty good file quite some time ago. I think it was in a thread titled "Black eSun PETG..." I am sure you can find it; lots of other good stuff in the thread, too. It should make a good start point at any rate.
