Re: DIY Mill Turn Center

So I saw that you went live and have hit your funding. I was slammed at work and missed on the funding window, keep us posted on progress and let us know when the general purchase will be available. This is the exact kind of machine I am looking for.

Re: Extrusion problems with your HE280 equipped printer? READ ME!

What if you are using the Jet-insert? I see some bulbing at the end of my filament when I pull it out. I am thinking I don't have enough cooling in the cold end side. Anyone with the Jet-insert haveing heat creep issues?

Re: DEF temps random and blinking heat bed LED

I had a similar issue and had to reduce my fan speed, it was just too much air right on the bed for it to keep up.
I am not looking at upgrading to a 24V supply just for this reason.

Re: Pause and Color Change?

Even through the bowden tube? I have not tried this, I assumed it would bind and jam in the bowden tube.

I have some items that would work well for this technique, I will have to get it a go and see how it does.

Re: Zesty Nimble extruder technical thread

Maybe speak with a few reviewers and gain some outside opinion. I know it is not easy, but I am sure a few of the Youtube review guys would be interested at taking a look. Just don't try to buy a good review, almost never works.

Pause and Color Change?

If you are printing from the SD card, is it possible to do a manual pause and color change?

I tried to use the pause from the SD menu, but when I restarted the machine crashed into the part, trying to resume a full mm down into the part it seemed. Is there a different way?

Re: PEI Print Surface How To - recap

I ordered a PEI sheet from CSHYDE and the adhesive "settled" under a print. There was enough movement that it allowed the PEI to flex to a point of sheering and pieces the size of my thumbnail started to tear off when I would remove them from the build plate. I ended up having to scrap tha...

Auto-Calibration Issue - Y steps not updating

So I just upgraded my heated bed, installed a ground flat aluminum heat spreader under my glass, and ran the auto calibration script. However on my first test print, at the Y tower the nozzle is nearly scraping the glass, the plastic was so thin I am pretty sure it did not actually extrude anything....

Re: unlevel bed

It should, I had bed issues and ran the 13 point and I can print most anything now, I don't notice any uneven printing issues.
I used a feeler gauge though, so I knew exactly what the gap was between the bed and the nozzle.

Any reason the code freezes if the bed and HE are up to temp?
At temperature I have yet to have the code complete, it'll freeze then reset.
