WTB a Steve's extruder

Hey all,

So I know a lot of you are unhappy with your Steve's extruder, I happen to prefer it and would like another. Anyone want to sell theirs?

My preferred method would be through eBay, but I'm open to other ideas. Let me know how much you want for it!

Thanks,
Rob

Re: Dual extruders

Hey guys, So I thought I had dual extruders working, but am having some weird problems whenever I have dual extruders active in a print. Basically, the print will be fine for a few layers (with both extruders successfully extruding) and then, the printer behaves as if it ignores all subsequent z hei...

Re: ABS Stops flowing / Hot end Jamming / Suicidal urges

Hey Octavio, Get it sorted out yet? I had an issue with similar "symptoms." My print would start out fine, then somewhere along the way, and not always at the same point, it seemed as if the plastic wouldn't flow out fast enough. Like you, I found pushing it with my hand during the process...

Re: Dual extruders

Hey GD,

If you still suspect that one cheapskate is too low, maybe you just need to adjust the end stop on that one tower. Turn the endstop adjustment screw clockwise to effectively raise the Cheapskate in relation to the other two, or turn the screw counterclockwise to lower the Cheapskate

Re: Dual extruders

I figured it out on my own, a head's up worth knowing about: The issue is with dual extruders and having any amount of "Lift Z" in Slic3r>Printer Settings>Extruder1. Settings that to zero solves the problem. Bummer, the Lift Z is needed to prevent some "ooze" issues with having t...

Re: Dual extruders

Thanks GD! So I'm running into a different issue with Repetier/Slic3r and dual extruders, this time regarding support material. When I set the support material to extruder2, Slic3r does this funky thing where it generates support material starting below the virtual print bed. If I set it back to ext...

Hey guys,

Also just got dual extrusion going thanks to you all! Has anyone figured out how to turn off the annoying chirping from the LED panel piezo that happens on each extruder change during printing? Hehe, hopefully that makes sense to someone!

Re: Can you set a minimum print time per layer in Slic3r?

Well, I basically found the answer to my own question in Slic3r, Filament Settings, enable cooling (even though I don't have a fan yet). However, I would like the ability to specify the amount of time myself.

Can you set a minimum print time per layer in Slic3r?

Hey guys, Can a person set a minimum print time per layer in Slic3r? I'm hoping to force a minimum time so each layer has enough time to cool. The reason I ask is because when I have very small "peaks" at the very top of a model, say a 1/4" boss, where that boss is the only thing prin...
