Re: esun epa jamming up the drive

I have not used ePA, but I print several other nylons, all at about 265C. Have you tried a higher temperature?

Re: Filament Drive Tension Slipping?

Those teeth marks look pretty thin to me. I think your tension screw needs to be tightened.

Re: Black ePC - disappointing first print

I have used the MakerGeeks black PC. It is very hit-or-miss. Lots of warpage, tough to keep on the bed.

BuildTak is polycarbonate. I would think it would be very difficult to remove and might destroy the BuildTak when removing a PC print.

Re: esun epa question

Markforged prints only in nylon, and they use a phenolic, unheated bed with Elmer's glue stick applied.

Re: MIC 6 plate and PEI

Plate temperature depends on the PLA you are using. I use 45C-60C for the PLAs I print. More importantly is to ensure your bed is CLEAN; I usually wipe it with acetone or glass cleaner. Secondly, ensure you are 'squishing' your first layer enough. You may try turning your Z-axis knob one click closer.
