Re: Marlin v1.02 for the M2

Re: Calibration Screw loosening during long prints

If the spring is applying tension to the screw it should not loosen. I do not have that sort of bed on mine, speaking from experience on other machines. If you haven't already, try tightening all three screws snuggly, then back them off to adjust. If they are already loose the springs will not hold...

Calibration Screw loosening during long prints

Hello! I'm having a problem for the last 2-3 weeks. It seems that one of the Calibration Screw (I have the table with 3 screws) is lossening after a few hours of continued printing. In my case, the only one doing that is the right adjustment screw, according to the image below. Bed Level Cheat Sheet...

Re: Big ABS prints adherence problem

Olá! Those parts are printed in PLA 0,15mm, finished with primer, sanding and car paint. Finally varnish.
All together are part of a robot I'm printing and finishing.

Re: Big ABS prints adherence problem

Insta, I agree PLA is a lot easier to print! I already used car primer to finish some PLA prints, after I printed the parts with a good resolution (0,10 or 0,15). The result is great, I agree too. But only If I print at a good resolution. Now I'm printing ABS at 0,3mm resolution. It's a matter of ti...
