Re: Can anyone help identify My problem with my print?

In recent weeks, we've seen a whole bunch of "it used to work and now it doesn't" problems, all sliced with more-or-less current versions of S3D, and considerable moaning about problems with various S3D versions. I use Slic3r, so I have nothing to offer other than the question taught to me by a grea...

Re: saw tooth on smooth ramp

Z axis saw tooth steps where the model was a smooth transistion You're looking at layer thickness: each sawtooth step is one layer of plastic. The tradeoff is simple: thinner layers = smaller steps = longer print time. If that surface must be smooth, flip the model upside down to put it against the...

Re: Can anyone help identify My problem with my print?

printing on an angle The problem most likely has nothing to do with "angles", but more likely with slicer settings or modeling. First of all, are you really printing with ABS, as shown in the Auto-Configure dropdown? Before digging into less likely settings, you may have a non-manifold model produc...

Re: .25 Stainless nozzle?

listen pal Pekish is Italian and writes English as a second (or third or fourth, for all I know) language, so what seems abrupt isn't due to arrogance. In point of fact, he's designed and printed some spectacular large-scale + fine-detail architectural models and speaks from considerable experience...

Re: Temp Problem Hard to Fix

increase communication timeout if that happens regularly on specific commands Programming EEPROM goes slowly; I haven't seen a timeout, but I suppose it depends on the Marlin flavor and surely the moon phase. Apparently feeding the parameters returned by M303 into M301 is required before the M500, ...

Re: .25 Stainless nozzle?

Makergear doesn't produce a .25 stainless steel nozzle? Based on absolutely no inside information, I'd say a specialty nozzle made with a specialty material represents such a small slice of the market there's a powerful incentive to not go there. After ordering, say, 50 nozzles to get a barely acce...

Re: Multiple Super Weird Failure Modes

What happened? Sounds like the cartridge heater is failing, so replace it. While you're at it, replace the thermistor , because some of the symptoms implicate it, as well. They're not exactly consumables, but they don't last forever. It seems like you've been removing and replacing the nozzle on a ...

Re: Is my RAMBo card finally giving up?

Octopi claims the serial connection went down.

Re: Temp Problem Hard to Fix

run a pid cal when I set my starting height each time I switch? Assuming you swap entire hot ends (*), including their thermistor & heater, then you can calibrate each one, write down its PID values, manually set 'em with M301 when you install it, then use M500 to store 'em in EEPROM. set to 200C, ...
