Prusaslicer 2.x

After the last upgrade or S3D which I did not install and there lack of any real progress, I have started looking at Prusaslicer which was branched from Slic3r and developed by pruas for there machines. It is still open source and very much like S3D. Their branch as been converted from perl to C so ...

Re: Filament Drive Pinion gear slipping on shaft

CA is holding, but have not had anything jam, just printing little 2 walled squares playing with Prusaslicer 2.1.1 which seem like it will be the software to use in the coming year(s) Liking the results better than simplified 3D ver 4.01.. Not sure that S3D has much of a future.. seems like they wer...

Re: four point upgrade

I am guessing you could remove it without damaging it , it could be glued back on with hit temp RTV. A new plate is $60 so that may be a better option, yours is probably not what it was when it was new..

Re: Filament Drive Pinion gear slipping on shaft

I ordered one to have on hand as I didn't hold much hope that the CA or locktite will work. I would have assumed it was a light press fit not held in place by adhesive. Also a little disappointed that support could not tell me how that gear was affixed. The person who answered did not know and asked...

Re: Filament Drive Pinion gear slipping on shaft

Did all that, cleaned and inspected, just use CA rather than locktite, only have the medium strength stuff from HF and didn't know if it would be too thick to do any good. If it comes loose again I will use the locktite.
Thanks for the info!

In hind sight it may...

Re: Petg extruding problems

I would take a close look at the heater and thermistor wires on your hot end and the harness. Maybe remove the filament, and run a couple of test prints that have failed with no filament and watch the heat on whatever interface you are using. Could be an intermittent wire break that causes the hot e...

Re: M2 Crazy Shake ?

I think your jerk/accel setting are all good M205 data is the same as stock I would suggest you take the gcode for a print job the is really rockin and rollin and run the same gcode on the known good machine and see how it acts.. if you have not done so. When you have a part with a very small gap be...

Re: M2 Crazy Shake ?

Also to isolate the x or y axis, remove your filament, remove the belt from the axis you are checking and run a print that has shown the issue to see if it changes without the carriage moving. If it does then maybe a bearing binding.. you should be able to fell that moving the carriage without the b...
