Re: PEI print bed surface experiments

Bringing this back from the dead. So the 3M tape still good for everyone? No lifts after hundreds of prints? I’ve been using BuildTak. Although, it works wonderful, the BuildTak adhesive itself is weak. It lifts and bubbles easily. Especially if you’re too close to the bed. BuildTak also has a pei v...

RM V2, clearing EEPROM often?

Hello, Been awhile but i gotta say, i've been printing since 2015! V2 is a beast! Now that I got 4 years under my belt, things have been pretty smooth. The only thing that's kind of mind boggling is sometimes the printer does weird things and I can't figure out what it is. But, it solves it when I d...

Re: Rostock MAX V3 Extruder Chewing Up Filament

when you say grinding, is the teeth skipping over the filament? So the filament is stuck and the teeth repeatedly grinds until it breaks? Or does the filament fall out of the grooves in the extruder causing it not to align and therefore grinding.

Re: functional parts w/ mounting holes

Thanks for the responses. Wow, I didn't even know that Modifier feature existed on Slic3r. I would post this question on the Slic3r section, but seeing no one goes on there since last June, i'll post in here. This would potentially solve some of my problems. However, getting it to work is another st...

functional parts w/ mounting holes

Wondering what everyone's doing for this or what's their solution. I find this to be quite challenging. Especially countersink and countersunk holes. They never fit a screw after it's printed and when i try to drill it out, you have to be very careful or the drills will catch the infill and split th...

Re: How-to: Dimensional Accuracy Calibration for Delta Printers

My Delta build is very accurate. All angles are nearly perfect. Effector is parallel to the printbed. Arms are all within 0,05mm Tolerance. But why are all prints in Y-Direction 0,1mm to small, but in X-Direction nearly perfect? No matter what I do, Y-Direction is 0,1mm smaller than X-Direction, in...

Re: PEI is amazing!

I still haven't jumped on the PEI bandwagon, yet! I was about to last year but I came across BuildTak. It works, but it sticks too well. You end up spending a lot of time waiting for it to cool and scraping it off. Recently, all the scraping caused the center to bubble and lift. Now, it's ripped and...

Re: Rostock V3 - Accel probing auto calibration?

thanks for the reply! I actually thought the developers or Gene would have some insight, but maybe not yet. I'm kind of surprised no one else has used it. I figured someone has to have some connections to get the V3 early. :)

Re: Just can't get these prints to stick...

I'm surprised hairspray doesn't work. It works for me and it's the only thing that's worked actually. Adjust your z lower. You shouldn't have a problem. If you still do, buy BuildTak.

since it's only the 2nd layer, did you observe WHEN it's causing this? Is it literally not adhering? or not enough filament is coming out?

How would I check the stepper for this issue? Aside from it turning when power is applied, which it does just fine I'm not sure how else to test it for an intermittent issue like this.

Re: Print keeps shifting

IME, print shifting can also be caused by bad stepper motors. Seems like symptoms of bad steppers is a bit of black magic. I'm not talking about obvious things like, it simply won't turn. What if you're motors are degrading or it's too old or too many hrs on them? Or you've simply overheated them on...

Also, when you change the horizontal radius, the center height doesn't change. The height of the effector changes towards the edge of the platform, the center stays the same. You'll want to find center of the bed height and change the HR so the outside X/Y/Z match the center. thanks for the clarifi...

You're z height is the issue. You have to setup Z height lower. So if you've set your z height using a sheet of paper, your new z height would touch the glass without the paper. If it still gives you an error, remove the glass and go lower. Pretty much, go low as you can until the error message goes...
