Re: Ugly outline perimeters

I would agree with some mechanical play, probably not your settings except for speed. Make sure everything is tight. Make sure your hotend itself doesn't have any play. Print again slow, make your adjustments at that speed, then once you have a good print try speeding it up. What machine do you hav...

Re: Rostock Max V3 Really having a hard time getting my first layer down

I had tried a paperclip and couldn't seem to push the tab down hard enough. I'll give it another shot for sure, and I'll see if I can find some pin headers laying around. Thanks for the advice!

Re: Octopi placing objects outside of print bed

With the Slic3r slicing engine? That's your problem.

Re: Octopi placing objects outside of print bed

Does it still print OK? The latest update to OctoPrint now warns when the object is outside the print area. You can disable that in Settings->Features. It gets that size from the Printer Profile, which I just checked and it is set to rectangular. There's also a setting for the position of the origi...

So, first step troubleshooting it beyond "Wiggle the darned thing while watching the status" would be to disconnect the limit entirely, and keep the contacts from touching. If this doesn't show an open condition, it means that there's a short in the wiring somewhere, or a dead input on th...
