Re: Strange extruder problem

What's your retraction speed set at? If you're too aggressive with it, you can end up grinding away a section of filament during a print with tons of retraction, like the octopus.

Re: Maker Geek's Raptor PLA

I just picked up a roll of Boots Industries' PLA, which is apparently made with the same 3D850 resin that MG Raptor is made with. Boots is out of stock of most of their color, so I just went with white, but it's SUPER cheap; $15 with free shipping for a .75KG roll, which works out to $20/KG. Haven't...

Re: The Vicious .2mm Nozzle

Nylon is a little springy, and with the fierce backpressure you'd get from a .2mm nozzle, you may simply have found a case where the bowden tube is allowing too much backlash. You might have better luck going super slow, or shortening the filament path in order to reduce that springiness as a factor...

Re: More layer shifting

I just upgraded to the new ball-cup arms, around 6 months ago. They are fantastic. ^_^ Turns out the issue was in fact that the printed piece I was using to mount the hotend to the effector had developed a teeny bit of play, and with the replacement the layer shifting seems to have cleared up. I jus...

Re: New with a pile of parts

If the arms are bent, then replacing them is your primary issue. I'd probably just upgrade to the new carriage/ball arms/effector set if it were me.

Re: More layer shifting

The shifts do seem to happen in the same direction, so I did think it was related to one of the towers in specific, but despite checking and rechecking the set screws on the pulleys, still no improvement. But! Then I wiggled the hotend to try to see if there was any play in the mount, and since then...

More layer shifting

So in the past few months, my printer has developed a real problem with layer shifting, and I'm just not sure what else I can try that I haven't already. Here's what I've done: *Tightened belts *Loosened belts *Made sure the belt drive pulleys are tightly screwed in and well aligned/not rubbing *Rep...

Adventures in Noise Slaying

My RMax V1 (heavily upgraded) was always a pretty noisy beast, but has been much quieter since installing some astrosyn dampers. However, I didn't like the effect they had on softening sharp corners/causing minor overshoot on high acceleration...I even noticed it was possible to wiggle the motors by...

Upgrade woes, endstop doesn't line up

I've been happily running my RMax V1 for a long while now, making incremental upgrades along the way; I replaced the original giant extruder, bought carbon fiber arms, swapped the hotend for a Prometheus. About 6 months ago I bought the new molded carriages, ball joint arms, and matching effector, a...

Re: Hobbed Drive Roller Causing Rose Thorn Filament, Failed Prints

For PLA you generally need to lower retraction speed significantly, it should be around 25mm/s.

Re: GCODE entry

My guess is you're probably in absolute extrusion mode instead of relative. So if you tell it to extrude 3mm, it'll do it, and then when you send the same command again, the printer says it's already at 3mm of extrusion, nothing to do. You'd have to say extrude 6mm to get another 3mm. Or go to relat...
