Re: Single extruder print causes extruder collision

Typically, collisions happen if the FFF settings are set improperly. This can sometimes happen by accident sometimes. If you're switching between settings and make modifications, you can sometimes accidentally save settings and not realize it. Send me an email a support@makergear.com. Include the gc...

Re: Newbie seeking help with Benchy

You could try lowering your print temp a little. 5°-10°.
Try it and see if it helps.

Larry,

Just wanted to confirm. You are correct. The fan is an exhaust fan.

Hold the reset button (just to the left of the front USB port)
for at least 60 seconds. This should put the PI back in AP mode.

Slow down to about 600 mm/min.
