Re: Nylon

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. The company immediately replace the filament, so I will not bad-mouth them. The burnt lumps were big ...

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.

Re: Cleaning a M3 SE Hotend - Best method?

First, have you removed the nozzle? That would be the most likely failure mode. I ensure mine are working by using a propane torch to consume any lingering plastic, then run piano wire through the hole a few times to knock loose any remaining ash. (This works especially well for brass. I would not d...
