Re: First print-- issues with tallthin.g from the SD card...

I haven't fully done the extruder calibration yet, but I've been thinking about this for the past day. Jsc recommended doing the extruder calibration. I'm not sure if that was just a suggestion for a noob or a possible resolution for my printing issues. If it's a possible resolution, I was thinking...

Re: First print-- issues with tallthin.g from the SD card...

Have as much experience printing as the folks at MakerGear. The reason their print looks a lot better is, they've been doing it a lot longer. Don't wait to run other prints until you get to that point - it's running the other prints that will get you to that point. ;) There are some settings that y...

Re: First print-- issues with tallthin.g from the SD card...

That's intentional, it's in your starting gcode under the "scripts" tab. It's used to get the plastic flowing in the nozzle before the print starts. Average all the measurements you took and use that as the number. Sounds like 0.41 or so. The extruding before it prints doesn't bother me. It's just ...

Re: First print-- issues with tallthin.g from the SD card...

I tried the cube walls and got some weird measurements. It seems like two corner walls are around .41 - .42 and the other two corner walls are perfect .40. I'm exhausted. Gonna try another tomorrow. This is frustrating. When I print directly from Simplify3D, it always does this before it starts prin...

After unpacking, I followed the instructions that came with it step by step. Watched and followed the initial setup, z stop ...
