Re: Ugly outline perimeters

Dampers can have an effect. If you are getting dust and the motors are twisting you may actually have the belts too tight. This will cause binding and on a delta even one belt binding will cause grief.

Re: Question about temperature 'def'

Def can also mean that it believes the temperature is decoupled, meaning that it's pumping in more heater power, and not seeing a temperature response. So if you have the center of the bed uncovered (where the thermistor is), and fans blowing, the thermistor can lose heat rapidly, and cause a decou...

Re: Question about temperature 'def'

Hi baba, > the 'def' signal means that the thermistor is not returning a valid signal to the control board. It's either an open circuit or a dead short. Since it falls outside of the acceptable range, the board shuts down the heater circuit to prevent runaway thermal damage. Note that if either the ...

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 have?

Re: Which Thermocouple to buy ?

Using a thermocouple will require modifying the firmware and wiring. I've done this on a pre-V3. Basically you have the thermocouple, which has a 'polarity' and must be wired the right direction, it goes to a signal amplifier board, and then you connect power ground and signal wires from the amp to...

Re: Fuse keeps blowing

If you connect the wires together that will create a dead short and surely blow a fuse. You are connecting a positive to a negative, a real no-no and if the fuse wasn't there for protection the wires would burn and possibly cause a fire. If this is a stock V2 and you are not using a peek fan then yo...

Re: strange build artifacts, how do I avoid them?

Xenocrates wrote:Those are usually a sign of imperfect retractions, as there is a little debris on the nozzle, and as it wipes off onto the part, it gradually moves against the build direction as it builds up on the side it approaches from.

I have to disagree. I believe it is temperature issue.

Re: Error printing 5" tall 'posts' on Delta H2 ptr.

Does the extruder even spin backward when a retraction occurs? Shoot a quick video of the extruder during retraction. I'd like to see it in action.

Re: Hotend won't stay above 240 and goes to DEF

When the firmware detects a broken signal from one of the thermisters it will display DEF. It has nothing to do with the heat settings. It is a bad thermistor or a break in the wiring, if only for a second.

If there was an issue obtaining the desired temp then DEC (decoupled) would be displayed.

Simplify 3D works well. It's easy to figure out, slices very quickly and the user interface is simple. Sure some people trash it but when it comes down to ease of use it just works.

Re: Print issue, not sure what it is called?

Under extrusion. In those rough looking spots the amount of plastic coming out of the hotend is momentarily reduced. Could be a blockage or extruder issue.
