Printing very out of parallel with bed

After a bad collision and recalibrating my Z height, my printer prints very significantly out of plane like 3 inches over 11. How to rectify this?

Layer cooling fan shroud for E3D mounted under effector plat

Hi all-

I've printed some of @626Pilot's 'Lucky Number 7' fan shrouds: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:487768 but they seem to be made for a different, most likely older, effector plate. Provided you have the same setup as I do, what do you do for your layer cooling needs?

How would you orient this object for printing?

Hi All- I've got a 3D print to do and I'm wondering how to orient it on the bed on a Rostock Max V2. The outside should smooth if theres a choice (i.e. avoid support on the outside). Screen Shot 2015-09-07 at 2.20.54 PM.png Since the object exceeds the build volume in 2 dimensions it will definitely...

Re: Torture Test in pla

Thanks for the input, guys. @Jimustanguitar I will try the extrusion test. I've done the filament diameter, that is already a part of my basic workflow. But an accurate extrusion length test is predicated on accurate filament diameter I would imagine. @mhackney yes, good point re: S3D forum, most of...

Hello All- I've beed doing some 'torture tests' with PLA in the interest of improving print quality after installing trick laser arms and an e3dv6.

Re: e3d v6 installation problem with peek fan

I mounted the E3D below the effector platform, like 626pilot, and used his 'lucky number 7' blower fans. Doesn't really feel like I mounted those correctly, but that is beside the point.

Has anyone designed a revised heating fan that will cover all fins when the E3D is mounted above?

Ok, I will try that. however, it mushroomed out the top too, creating a sort of big plastic rivet.
