Re: Extruder now moving left too far - making grinding sound

Did you use the new endstop flag? There's a piece that holds the belt in place, that's a different shape for the dual.

Re: esun epa jamming up the drive

Both of those are moisture. You need to bake the filament in a dehydrator for several hours before you use it, and load-and-start it while the filament is still warm. PA sucks compared to normal filaments you're used to.

Re: remove baked on Pla from nozzle?

Brass prints "better". I can hit higher speeds and a bit less stringing.

Re: Dual M2 for Sale

$1150 shipped for a dual in this condition, with those extras, with the upgrades is a very good price.

Re: esun epa jamming up the drive

Less drive tension -- if you over-squish the filament trying to dig into it, you'll squeeze it into an oval and it will jam. Less tension and go slower :)

Re: Any Print Settings Tips for CoPolyester?

You probably don't want to hear it -- but PETs really like wider nozzles.

Go slow, hot, under extrude slightly (I run 0.93), 250C nozzle, 75C bed with hairspray.

I have both -- several M2s and a CR10S-400. The M2s are way better -- know what tradeoffs you're choosing here. ;)

Re: V4 Hot End tech details?

I think it splashes just a little bit of airflow down to keep the throat of the V4 cool. But, yeah, it's not a game-changer either way.

Re: V4 Hot End tech details?

You're good now.

And, sthone, I actually added my fans back in. I *think* it made the printer more reliable, but it's certainly not incredibly noticable one way or another.

Re: V4 Hot End tech details?

30:1 is ridiculous overkill for the v4. You can feed the filament through with tweezers -- you just can't do it SUPER fast. It has a relatively small melt-zone. Ed's good about doing all the volumetric math though.
