Re: esun epa jamming up the drive

I will check that link out and maybe give it a go if I have the needed equipment.. Just now am setting up a .5 stainless nozzle to try out. Ran (use that term loosely) through the bed leveling process and am waiting for the bed to heat so I can get the initial height dialed in with ABS before I try ...

Re: esun epa jamming up the drive

I have been printed white and black pla with one hot end, and abs white and black and now the epa with another hot end and more or less only printing miniature. So total maybe 1 spool. This does not seem like a drive issue at this time.. it got wound up because it stopped extruding and I messed with...

Re: esun epa jamming up the drive

This is kind of strange. Had to go to 280 go get this stuff to flow . Don't seem right to me.. Sent email to the distributor to ask if .25 is just too small but seems like at 260 the hot end cools off after 30mm extuded in a row and then has to heat up for a bit before a little more will go.. tied p...

Ok great! If I raise the temp and it still strips out I guess I need to install a larger nozzle..

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? No, as once I got the drive back together I called it a night. Will try that tonight.. esun temp listing is 240-260 but will try 265 tonight.. What about tension.. any tips.. less or more ...

esun epa jamming up the drive

Hey just tired to use some eSun EPA in my M2 with at .25 nozzle after using abs with no issues. Had nozzle at 250 and loaded it up and as it extruded it would eventually stop after 30 mm or so and strip out. I eventually ended up with it all wrapped around the the filament drive and had to take it a...

Parts List is: 2 NTE30045 White LEDs (local Micro center) 1 560 ohm resistor Arduino male and female headers 2 pins worth of...
