Makergear M2 stops extruding after many hours midprint

Hi all, I have been facing this issue for quite sometime and am seeking some assistance on what I can do to fix this. This usually happens for really big, long prints but there is definitely some sensitivity to the settings (I think speed and ooze control settings) because depending on the settings ...

Re: Best bed and quality spool for ABS?

I dont know it may be a thermal issue. I do have my M2 in an sealed enclosure with heat lamps and a temperature controller. Right now I have it set to 135F in the enclosure.

Best bed and quality spool for ABS?

Hi All I have been printing ABS in my M2 for quite awhile now so I am experienced, however one problem I have not been able to solve is that for heavy/large surface area parts the corners of some of the sides of the print curl up slightly. I know there is probably some bed leveling issue that I need...

Re: How to solve this printing problem? (ABS printing)

What nozzle diameter and layer thickness are you running? 0.35mm nozzle and by layer thickness do you mean extrusion width? If so, its set at 0.45mm No, I mean Layer Height. I've never tried to push a bead that wide from a .35 nozzle - don't know if that's a factor or not. Your temps should be high...

Try printing at 265 and 110. See if that helps.
I'll try that, but what about the ambient temp of the enclosure? Too low?

How to solve this printing problem? (ABS printing)

I have Makergear M2 inside a custom wood enclosure box I built. I don't have any temperature control in the box but I do let it eat up to about ~100F before printing. Bed aheasion seems good (print comes out flat and sticks) and I run the bed at 105C and the extruder at 245C. No fan at all on the pr...

Re: In the middle of a enclosure build, need some advice

OK guys, box is complete and my first prints have come out. My prints are a lot better than no enclosure, but aren't perfect yet. With no insulation and no fan (haven't installed the fan yet) the temp gets to about 100F inside while printing. Is this hot enough? If not, what should the ambient tempe...

Re: In the middle of a enclosure build, need some advice

Thanks for the insight. I have already gone past the point of no return (time and money) on my custom enclosure so I will be sticking with it. Any insight on the ventilation fan? 120mm vs 40mm? CFM?

In the middle of a enclosure build, need some advice

So I'm half way through a enclosure build for my M2 for better abs printing just using parts from home depot and frys. Basic wood enclosure with plexiglass door with lighting, nothing too fancy. I did buy a 120mm computer case fan for the exhaust to put at the top but I was wondering if that fan siz...
