Re: EZStruder bowden on custom Delta skipping

You might also try lowering your retraction speed if it's high...I noticed that when I had fast retraction (100mm/s) and the printer hit a section with a lot of quick retracts in a row the filament sometimes got torn up. Slowing down to 35mm/s led to less damage to the filament and stopping it from ...

Re: Anyone with a Prometheus head please check in!

I have a Prometheus V1 on a Rostock Max V1. The Prometheus requires more pressure to extrude than the stock hotend, and I had occasional issues with skipping with the default ezstruder. I ended up moving to a geared extruder, and things have been great ever since. That waviness is in your last vid w...

Re: No heat, blown fuse?

I tried changing firmware just in case there was a bug, but going back to repetier .91 didn't help. Guys I am lost here...there's just no power flowing to the hotend or bed, but everything else is fine.

Re: No heat, blown fuse?

Both the hotend and bed are reading at room temp, so I don't think it's a thermistor issue.

No heat, blown fuse?

Yesterday I was running a print only to have it die unexpectedly from with the thermal runaway message - your hotend is heating up slower than expected, thermistor may be decoupled, or whatever the actual wording is. I reset the printer and heated it back up only to have the same thing happen during...

Re: Prometheus Hot End v2 Build

(I'm using a Rostock Max V2 w/stock extruder, fans & heat sinks on all 4 motors, & a Prometheus v2 hot end.) An all metal hotend takes more force to extrude than the default one, just because the filament is sliding along metal rather than teflon, regardless of how nicely polished that meta...

Re: Will the real owners of E3D and Prometheus please stand

I haven't used the V6, but I do have an E3D V5 which was perfect with ABS but jammed constantly with PLA. I switched to the Prometheus (V1) and haven't had a single jam since then.

Re: Polyplus PLA

To combat stringing you could try upping retraction (sorry that's the obvious one), but there's also a trick I found works well with S3D: set you extrusion width slightly smaller than your nozzle diameter. I have a .4mm nozzle, and set the extrusion width to .35 for PLA, and it does definitely cut d...

Hey all! After being very happy with my rostock max v1, I decided to try building a scaled up mini kossel for a friend of mine, and I've run into an issue. I used Johann's frame size calculator to choose my aluminum extrusions length, ending up with 500mm horizontals (and 400mm arms) to give me abou...

Re: Cellular lamp test print, need help tweaking settings

First off, do you have a fan pointed down at the print? If not, that's step one for getting nice prints with PLA. I'd also try running a little cooler, maybe 200c, and increasing the retraction.

Re: Of Pink Elephants and Melamine Bonfires

I can reach the white line, but I'd have to take off my cooling fan to print a circle quite that large. I've successfully printed circles just a tiny bit smaller than that though, so I'm fairly confident I could. In terms of leveling, even after rigorous calibration there's still a very little bit o...

Re: Boogers!

Two ideas come to mind. First I'd try lowering your flow rate, since your problem might be from overextruding. Second I'd try using a different slicer and comparing the output.
