Re: Noz: def, heater decoupled (RMV2)

Edit: I held a thermometer to the hotend and it was rising pretty damn fast! It must be the thermistor? --- I tried testing the heater wire with the multimeter and got a reading of like .32 when setting it to '20' in the V with line and dotted line settings...I think that means DC voltage. I am bad ...

Noz: def, heater decoupled (RMV2)

Hello again for the millionth time! I'm trying to debug this nozzle issue and hoping someone can help. I try to heat up the nozzle on my E3D v6 (newer cartridge style) and the temperature doesn't rise fast at all. So slow (< 1c) that it decouples heater. Now, I do have a reading of 20.6 at idle and ...

Re: RMV2 and Dual Extrusion?

Thanks for the idea! Is the Y-feeder decent? I'll look into it. The cost will be much higher though. After a good bit of research, I think it's probably not a good idea to print support material using a single-nozzle solution. Dual nozzle seems too risky given that I'm not sure my machine is even cl...

RMV2 and Dual Extrusion?

Hi everyone, So I know this topic has been beaten to death, but I thought I'd see if anyone has tried, can recommend, or absolutely loathes the E3D Cyclops+ or Chimera+. And if dual E3d V6 would be better. I would primarily like to print brittle support material for the first and last few layers of ...

Re: Layer Shifting

I just had a layer shift while printing retraction cubes...just above the second layer or so. I think it's straight up a terribly built printer (my fault). Feels like it's spitting out too much filament as it's often leaving some even when retracting. Coasting doesn't seem to help. I've calibrated t...

Re: Layer Shifting

The current fan shrouds are the file that came in the instructions, I believe. I don't think I've ever seen a corner-mounted one. That would be cool, though. Do you mean you screw the fan directly to the frame? Seems like the air would come out horizontally. KL17H248-15-4A I don't think any of these...

Re: Layer Shifting

Fail. Not only was there a massive layer shift, but it was probably caused by the huge amount of curling just past the first few base layers. I'm guessing it's due to insufficient cooling. This would make sense since I removed 2 of my fans. I was using the original squirrel cage fans with the origin...

Re: Layer Shifting

Okay major update. I started using the new profile and it looks great but still had a layer shift. I then took rootboy's advice and removed the fans and led ring and I have not experienced a single layer shift since. Now that isn't to say it won't happen, I'll be trying a bigger print today. I even ...

Re: Layer Shifting

Definitely a good idea. I put it together several years ago when I wasn't strapped for time. But I did do some upgrades a few times, and I've honestly never had the best attention to detail so yeah there could be quite a few mistakes.

Re: Layer Shifting

Here is a sad thing, as I was removing fans I noticed that the standoff on the Y side is not flush against the top of the effector plate. it was up by two threads. Apparently it doesn't pull tight when screwing the plate to the standoff. I can only imagine this causes the hot end to be a little tilt...

Re: Layer Shifting

The nozzle does have z-lift. It's ridiculously high, too. I was going to remove it but honestly the results are the same as any time in the last few months. Nasty layer shift to the left. I will start checking the wiring. The thing was such a pain to put together that I've avoided taking anything ap...

I switched to the new profile with 200ms travel and here are the three cubes I printed from the same file (pictures later maybe) 1. Nice overall shape, lots of stringing and blobs/zits 2. Same as above, pretty large layer shift to the left (just like always) 3. Same as #1 So as always, intermittent ...

Re: Layer Shifting

Yes. I turned combing to 'skin only' per a few comments I found buried in a topic. Makes sense because the head was making moves that didn't retrace, but were long distances, and left filament behind that then built up. Trying to start over and find really good retract settings for my e3d v6 using P...

As for print size I'm printing at 60% I just thought about something. The extra amount on restart (retraction)...I have that set to something like .4. Should that be -.4 (cura turns this orange)? It doesn't specify if positive means it pushes extra and negative means it holds back. If that is the ca...

Err...what do you mean by sprockets? The little gears on the motors? I checked everything I could for tightness but that was just the jiggle-test.

No fans while printing PLA *aaaaaaaahhhhH!!!!* I can try that for sure. One last bit of information: Shifting only really happens on wider prints. Oh and I noticed that the hot end temperature, though set to 196, seems to drop to around ~193. Probably nothing but still not cool. This article is inte...

Important update: When moving the effector around to feel for a snag I noticed something funny. My Y tower would slip back down if I went toward it so that the Y-carriage was considerably higher than the others. It would fall about 1 inch.

Re: Layer Shifting

Well I tried lowering the acceleration and jerk and it seems to be about the same. At around the same height, things shift pretty hard then it straightens again. So I tested the towers, moved the effector around and figured that one tower was a little tight, one a little loose. I reset to Z position...

Thanks for the advice. Wasn't sure if that was what I should do. Set it to the 155, 155, 155, 165 values which I believe is where it should have always been. I can try bumping slightly more, because it seems to be 'better'. The result of the change is that it is a little wigglier all the way up, but...
