I believe i had found my issue with some slight layer alignment issues that i have been dealing with lately. (I hope) Prints were coming out excellent from after calibration then in the past couple months the prints started to get artifacts such as layer alignment issues about 1/2 inches up. This ev...

Re: I may have a problem...

Yes, i agree. its really the future, and its just the beginning of home manufacturing. I seem to have the trouble of not being able to find business. I can make and design but people around here just don't seem to get it. Until they see the machine working that is, but geting tired of showing people...

Re: Weird things happening

Good advise on the belts, if they are not slipping there really is no reason to go tighter as that will cause more problems like belt stretch and uneven torque. As far as lubrication goes with those molded u joints- do not lube them as geneb mentions. I thought I was getting rod creep as one of the ...

Re: Push button getting wore out?

As always, excellent advise! I could not see anything but took some dental floss after pulling the knob off and went in between it and some filament (very small amount) was in there. Works like a charm. Thank you again. excellent forum!

Push button getting wore out?

Push button on the LCD seems to be acting up. The push function seems less like a button and more stiff. If I push it harder it works, but not all the time. Anyone else get this issue. I have the V2. Everything else works great just the select function/push button. Could I lube the pushing mechanism...

Re: Parts that I printed are too big

could you check your print speeds? you may be overshooting the target layer. Print something very slowly and max speed to very slow and watch. ??? just trying to brain storm.

Re: Vertical Banding Revisited

Also think about rigidity. The stock hot end mount is extremely beefy, which makes it more rigid. Quite a bit more beefy than the mounting hardware you get for an e3d.

Re: rostock is retracting to many times

I was a bit nervous for rep because all i knew was matter control. But i think it all boils down to personal preference. I like repetier host better than i thought, but mattercontrol is nice but again with thte personal preference. and oh ya that thing about learning curves.

Re: rostock is retracting to many times

Ok so the .750x.750x.5 cube is way off of speck it measures .670x.670x.495. Seriously last week was running parts that were dead on to what the model called for. the print looks perfect, just undersized.

Some prints act just like under extrusion, while other prints retract every change in direction. I am bac...
