Re: Used M2 Rev E bent Z lead screw.

Well with Covid I guess there could be some lacking in support personnel in the office, not sure they are even open. I did not think about that... In non covid times, MG support is very good from my experience.

Re: Used M2 Rev E bent Z lead screw.

I assume when you say "In their shop" you mean the online store.. if so Call them, they will sell you what you need if they have it or can get it. I mean they build the machines in OH.. they should have a lead screw..

Re: warped PETG prints

PETG should never need a fan.. I think some folks print it way to hot and add the fan rather than dropping the temp ..

Re: slipping filament - motor shaft wiggly

Look in the crack and watch the motor shaft when the filament slips.. if the share is not turning the pinion gear on the motor is no longer locked to the shaft. It is held in place by locktight or some chemical means.. If you find this to be the case just replace the extruder motor with the complete...

Re: Printed part has bad X-axis shift, generally poor print

I had read that in the eSun specs someplace and on different websites when I started with PETG. I don't use it for anything but mechanical items that need to be strong yet flexible, they are normally simple shapes. I do make a cover for a knife sharpener strop that is a single .8mm wall using the .7...

Re: Printed part has bad X-axis shift, generally poor print

Keep in mind I am using and M2 with S3D 4.01 not the buggy current version. S3D has different support resolution.. 1mm 2mm 3mm etc 1mm is the smallest 40% is the density of the supports. PETG should not be printed with cooling, it does not need cooling. I keep retraction close to the print speed, I ...

Re: Printed part has bad X-axis shift, generally poor print

Try setting your extrusion multiplier at .93 and use only one extruder, petg supports at 40% 1mm resolution, speed of 35mmS, temp 230C and 70C for the bed no fan, layer height .25, retraction 1.10mm, 30mms, no wipe no costing only retract over open spaces and an extrusion width of .40 assuming a .35...

Re: PETG build surface adhesion advice

Here is a post that explains how to set the z offset
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=7959&hilit=M206

This stl should be 3mm tall when printed and the thickness of the wall should be .8mm +.01-02 if extrusion multiplier and Z offset is correct
2 walls at .4 EW 3mm tall.stl
