Re: PRINTER STOPS MID-PRINT

Any ideas on this? Should I update my Repetier version? I've printed 3 of the same prints successfully with Repetier Host.

Re: PRINTER STOPS MID-PRINT

So I have a Rambo Board Version 1.1b and I am running Repetier 0.91. I tried running a print from the flash drive and it completed just fine. I am sure that the tablet or computer are not going to sleep. Also, I just got done running the same print on Repetier Host and it also finished just fine. It...

PRINTER STOPS MID-PRINT

So I have a rebuilt Rostock V2 conversion from a V1. I have been using the Matter Control Touch mostly and have had issues finishing prints. Part of the problem was the Matter Control Touch printing long prints. But I have been working with Matter Hackers on that; (separate issue) but that has been ...

Re: Little Hangers Killed Print

Thanks for the detailed description of potential issues Thom. I will have to read this a few times to let it all sink in. Up till now I've been tending prints with a tweezers.

Re: SeeMe Midnight Black ABS

The filament keeps making a cracking/popping sound (kind of like a campfire) occasionally when it's coming out of the nozzle.

Re: SeeMe Midnight Black ABS

I've found lower temps are working better around 215C with 80C bed. 25% fan (3 fan with bottomless shroads). 40 mm/s speeds for premiters and supports.

This stuff seems really soft it's more like PLA. IDK, I'm pretty new at printing.

Thanks.

SeeMe Midnight Black ABS

Does anyone have any suggested settings for SeeMe Midnight Black ABS. I'm have a hard time dialing it in. If you wouldn't mind you could send me your settings.

Thanks!

Re: Printing Overhangs with PLA

All, thanks for the advice. I'll slow it down for overhangs and direct the fan on it. This part is for my RC truck. I designed it for a CNC machining operation, so you are correct about it's design intent. I'll make modifications or split it in half for future prints. Thanks!

Re: Printing Overhangs with PLA

I read your section on overhangs. Currently the way I have MatterControl setup is to print the exterior perimeter after the interior perimeter. Is there anything else I can do? I am using 3 of those 25mm squirrel fans with the open bottom shrouds. So i guess I'm a fan boy. Should I tone it down and ...

Printing Overhangs with PLA

I am printing a part with overhangs with PLA, see attached. The beginnings of the overhangs want to curl up like a flower petal. Is this from too much fan cooling? Or is it something else?

Re: Rostock V1 vs EF2 TORNADO!!!

Thanks for the feedback. I forgot to mention that 14 of the plastic parts were broken along with 3 of the arms. How is the full upgrade kit to the V2? I was kind of leaning that direction.... The full upgrade kit to V2 from V1 is your best, the least expensive option. Everything you would need are ...
