Re: Switch Covers

2 on the left are the .25mm nozzle...lol...idk Nah, two on the right are 0.25. It's hard to tell since things are a bit out of focus, but the corners are sharper on the right hand ones. Or, at least, a 0.25mm nozzle should result in sharper corners. The advantage of a smaller nozzle is you can prin...

Re: Cylinders aren't round

Oh man, that's a good catch there. Not a place any of us were thinking to look for slop, clearly. I wouldn't think this is a wear issue, but it does sound like something to check for on the X and Y axes out of box and whenever you change belts.

Re: Cylinders aren't round

Are the flats in the x or y direction? The problem axis is always perpendicular to the flats.

Re: Printer interface software

Could you post an executive summary of what it took to load the driver on the tablet in case someone runs into a similar problem in the future? The RAMBO's a pretty popular controller, so I think it'd be likely to come up again.

Re: More ABS Problems

My design in abs still has that thinning when going over this spot on the bed. I decided to shift the print to the left and now the skirt is thin on this spot. Seems like it may be raised a bit causing the filament to thin out. I still don't understand why PLA doesn't thin out, but ABS does. If it'...

Re: Supports Advice

Chances are your dense support is sagging and not supporting as much as you'd like. I would try 2-3 dense support layers, or a higher % on the sparse infill. Maybe both. It's not like you have to worry about squeezing the support out of a tight space or anything, it could be a completely solid piece...

Re: Printer interface software

If all you want to do is start prints that are already on the SD card, you could try Pronterface. You wouldn't need the slic3r integration, you'd just use the printer interface to jog the printer and start an SD card print.

Re: MIC6/PEI - ABS Not Sticking

I found that using a fine grade sand paper works a little bit better than a scrubby....it gives it more tooth and doesn't affect the print surface. If you have any in the 1000 grit range give that a try. :) 220 is the finest I have. I will take a trip to the home depot tomorrow and get some 1000 gr...

Re: Feeder seems out of alignment with hotend tube

Did the filament previously line up and had stopped lining up? If so, your filament drive is wearing out. You can fudge it by turning the motor inside a plastic mount as insta said. Or if you have a metal motor mount, loosen the screws that hold the motor to the motor mount and twist the motor. If t...

Re: BLTouch Auto Leveling Sensor

There was a discussion on the boards at one time where it compared auto levelling with auto mesh. Auto levelling simply handles tilt in the print bed but it makes the assumption that the bed is perfectly flat. Mesh levelling actually accounts for the print bed having deviations outside the tilt. Th...
