Re: Getting PVA to stick to PLA

And Yes, with a hot end on and nothing printing any filament is going to leak out, it all does. Please keep in mind th...

Re: Z axis speed at start up?

While we wait for Ed, could you have changed something in the slicer/printer profile? I thought there are different location for a printer to home and the M2 is a little different with something being opposite.

Re: Getting PVA to stick to PLA

I have a roll of Dow Evolv3d which was sent to me by mistake when I ordered some Nylon from Amazon.

You may want to update that to "really don't know what you are doing and don't pay someone to do it for you"!! :D Hate those know-it-alls with deep pockets, they c...

Re: 1st Wall of Test Cube is Too Thin?

For extrusion multiplier I no longer use a single wall. I have found this leave you about bout 2-3 clicks under extruded. The reason was recently posted in the Simplifed forum, not sure I fully followed it but I have seen the same results at this fellow posted. I use 2 walled squares to check starti...

Re: Newbie, "hi," etc.

If the build surface is deep I would call support but it will get scratched and scraped and eventually rip and lift.
