Re: Extremely brittle parts

i theory, chaining filament brands shouldn't change anything...the thing that does change brand to brand and even sometimes spool to spool is the actual diameter of the filament are you measuring the width of your filament and then entering that into your slicer? if not this can lead to over or unde...

I had a similar problem that your describing, temperature would curve way down, then overshoot. turned out to be the rambo board. I've seen this also happen with a bad PID tune, but, since it ...
