Re: new hotend not extruding

Did you try slowing the extrusion speed down in jog mode? It looked really fast in the video. I've had that problem before if you are trying to push the filament throught the hot end too fast in jog mode. Worth a try?

OD to size, ID always undersize

I have noticed that the OD on cylindrical parts is always within .001, but the ID is always undersize by around .02. I have had to modify the solid models, output a new stl, and then print to get it correct. I have used standard S3D settings with no changes and still have this issue. Material is Tau...

Re: Ghosting problems

So I did one more test this morning. I went back to default acceleration values, but limited outline under speed to 34% which would be 20mm/sec. This gave me the best surface finish with the least amount of ghosting. I believe there might be more I can gain with making the bed a more solid connectio...

Re: Ghosting problems

Great point about the bed. Do you think we get any of the ghosting problems from the rubber pads allowing the bed to move / bounce? I have seen corner clips to make this a more rigid connection and thought about trying it. It sure would be nice to be able to change acceleration on the outer perimete...

Re: Ghosting problems

OK, with just the addition of the M201 X1000 Y1000, the surface finish is better with reduced ghosting, but it is still noticeable. I noticed the jerk settings in the post you had me look at. Will any adjustments to these help? My current S3D settings are: 3600 mm/min, 50% outline under speed, .15 l...

Re: Ghosting problems

Thanks for the advice, I will give it a try now. Is this modal and will stay active or does the machine reset to standard acceleration settings? What is the default acceleration setting?

Thanks again!

Ghosting problems

Hello Maker Gear Forum members, Though I have been browsing the forum since I purchased my M2 a month ago, this is my first post for some help. I have noticed ghosting issues on the surface of parts when creating fonts or holes. Is there anyway to reduce or eliminate this without slowing the printin...
