Re: Sudden uphill battle with PETG?

funny, today I had my hot end stop printing after the first layer.. 2 times. It was my .5 nozzle hot end and had been used just the other day for several prints with eSun PETG. Seemed like the hot end is cooling off yet the thermistor says it is still 240. I swapped it out for the hot end that has t...

Re: 1st layer squish printing PETG

I print a lot of PETG on my M2 with Kapton. I use eSun and print at 235 and 70. When you change your layer height you will need to adjust your Z offset for that perfect layer. This can be done in S3d or in the Firmware with M206. To do this you need to print a calibration square and measure it. Set ...

Re: removing and replacing nozzles

Ok, I see what you are saying, I have never left a hot end on over night with PETG in it. As far removing a nozzle to clean and reinstalling on the same hot end, I have done it in the past when I first got the machine and was successful. Eventually I cracked the nozzle trying to change sizes with ou...

Re: removing and replacing nozzles

Invest in some eSun cleaning filament and use it between every material change and every so often of you never change material and you will never have to remove a nozzle until it is worn out. I have 4 hot ends each with a different nozzle size and never ever never ever ever remove the nozzle. Before...

Re: files

Tom, what are the file extensions on the files you have? What are the 3 letters after the dot in the file name? The extension tell determines what software can edit the file to make changes. If we do not have the proper software the file can not be changed.

Re: Questions from a new owner (of old M2)

Don't own a Prusa yet but from what I can see my M2 is like the big cast iron table saw they used to have in shop class or the one Norm has! The prusa is a nice aluminum table saw. S3D works, there is no license charge after buying it. I think the older 4.01 version has less issues but from what som...
