Re: M2 nightmare with soft filiment

When experimenting with my PETG printed sleeve I used a dremil with a tiny round bit and needle file to adjust the oem drive housing.. Hopefully metal will work better that a plastic sleeve.
Good luck and keep us posted

Pin holder for wire tools

I have a some dental picks I use when weeding supports from miniatures and wanted to make my own tools.. So I picked up some 3/64th steal wire lenghts at a hobby shop and made a holder out of PETG that the rubber sleeve off of a paper mate pen would fit for added control. Wire is cut to length put i...

Re: Build plate height differences

Yes, I agree and thank you as you were very instrumental in my training and still are! Now I know exactly what the difference is, I can alter the starting height to be correct for printing miniatures in the center of the plate, then do an M206 Z10.xx (adding .04) if printing something larger of even...

Build plate height differences

So I just spent the morning with some nice long feeler gauges trying to make sure my M2 bed is level. The bed is as level as I can get it, however the center of the plate is about .08mm higher than the corners. If I loosen the hold downs that number is slightly less, but the the glass slides around ...

Re: Black ePC - disappointing first print

I know this thread is ePC but you guys are talking about PETG ..been printing PETG on the Polyimide tape (i assume it is Kapton) and had NO issue with it sticking.. it is getting it off if the part is large.. Smaller parts can be hit with refrigerant (canned air upsidedown) and they will loosen but ...

Re: PETG your favorite brand?

I have had good luck with MakerGeeks PETG, and you cannot beat the price. https://www.makergeeks.com/collections/petg-filament MakerGeeks is having a 35% sale on all products. I have a roll of their PLA but it is rather inconsistent in diameter, hope the PETG is better going to get a few color as I...

Re: Printing with Ninjaflex?

I have not yet tried ninjaflex nor do I have the M3. However I don't think the drive on the M3 is too much different than the M2.. Soft filament needs to be printer really slow (10mmS) and you need to adjust the drive tension so the filament is not crushed and distorted or it will wind up in the dri...

Re: bubbles in PETG prints?

I have been using eSun white PETG and printing at 245 and I tend to print everything slow as I have been doing tiny stuff. I would not think speed would make bubbles.. I think I would probably try extruding as in the video and see if the bubble show up there. If you have an electric oven, toaster ov...

Re: bubbles in PETG prints?

Seems to be moisture and that can happen before it is made according to something I read on another site some time ago. I have a dehydrator I run all my filament in to dry it out if I run into problems. Did a quick search found this on the matterhackers sites Been Printing with the MatterHackers PET...
