Re: Z-axis ripple on very small cylinder

Thanks for the reply - yeah I was thinking that as well that it might not have enough time to cool between layers. I'll try printing a few of them at a time as even with 2, I get the same issue (may have to print 3 at a time in this case).

Z-axis ripple on very small cylinder

Hi all,

I was printing this very small cylinder on my M2 and noticed that I have a surface ripple effect (see photo). Doesn't seem to show up on larger cylinders....any ideas? I also attached my S3D print profile as well. Thanks for any help!

80 prints & 4 spools in 9 days....M2 was amazing!

I just wanted to say how happy I am with my M2! I received a huge 80-part print order from 3D Hubs recently and just finished the print job. Over the course of 9 days, the printer ran 24hrs a day, with little to no downtime/rest. Ended up with 80 prints, using up 4 full spools of black PLA filament ...

Re: What are your default print speeds in S3D?

Ah ok - I'll keep it at 100mm/sec then if that is the case. I don't want to push any part of the printer to the limit as my current M2 has been performing perfectly, but I did want to see if I could speed things up at all as I've been running it at default S3D speed till a few days ago.

Re: What are your default print speeds in S3D?

Oh thank you! I didn't know that you could change S3D to mm/sec....just changed it.

Keeping with my current speed, I'm now reporting at 113.3mm/sec for my PLA speed, but want to know if this is considered too fast or if anyone is running higher than this with success?

What's funny about that is that I bought a Lulzbot Mini last week to be the 2nd printer next to my M2....needless to say after only a few days of screwing around with it, I asked for my money back and put in my order for another M2 right in time!

What are your default print speeds in S3D?

Hi all, Did a search and didn't really see many posts on this, but all I want to know are people's successful default print speeds with the M2+S3D (please post in mm/min!) I recently went from the S3D default of 4800 mm/min to 6800 mm/min and while it seems really fast to me, I'm still getting great...

Re: M2 Kit Sales To Pause

I just ordered my 2nd M2 kit on the 13th - I hope I'm still receiving mine?
