Re: V1 upgraded to V3 hybrid now extruder will not work

What printer did you choose in the firmware?
and this might be silly but Rambo accepts two Z motors, make sure yours is connected to E0 and not Z or E1.

Re: Canada Team

Hi and welcome! Hope you enjoy building the machine. Feel free to ask anything. For better aid with your printer settings share that .STL (or a similar one if you worry about someone copying it). If it's a very tall print, then I would recommend PLA or PET-G, ABS will crack/lift due to shrinkage if ...

Re: Transported RSV3 and now 1st layer issues

Hello, if the printer shuts down while it's printing then there is a short somewhere or the psu is malfunctioning. Someone with an electronics background should step up and help you here, I wouldn't know where to start. If you see a "def" then one or both thermistors are broken or not prop...

What stepper motor are you using with the Titan Aero? Hi, I'm using the recommended stepper from E3D. They call it Nema17 Slimline: m Some people are using and even smaller one, which is +/- 30g lighter but with a 1.8º stepping angle vs the 0.9º of the Slimline. Like this one: m If you are consider...

Re: 1st Layer issue

Yes, you are right, the 3rd one shouldn't stick. I gave that tip because I thought it could be a gravity issue. When your hotend is at printing temperature and you leave it like this for a long time, if you hit print, it will take a few seconds for the filament to start coming out. But now I think t...

Re: Transported RSV3 and now 1st layer issues

Sorry but if nothing was changed before and after you moved the printer, then there is no reason to be a software problem.
You should check everything mechanical related. Go through every bolt, belt, carriage. They issue must be there.

Best of luck

Re: Print Quality Degrading mid-print

25mm/s is a conservative speed, mine is the same. But, how long your retracts? if they are close to 2mm then it's ok, if they are >4mm then lower them. When the issue starts, is it retracting a lot or it's just the same as it was a few layers below? If it's not retract related, then I could only thi...

Re: Rostock v2 - New Power Supply?

The easiest way would be to get a 12v 29a psu and use it as it is. You could bump up the output voltage to like 13.5v (I think) and get a bit quicker bed. I've used the machine like this for a few weeks when my ssr died. Fans didn't seem to bother those extra volts. Or you could go the 24v+ssr route...

Re: Print Bed Material

One corner of the print lifted after 20 min. It finished ok, but I guess that plastic shrinkage was here to blame. The first layer was really low, like If you print a cube you would get elephant foots. I intentionally did this to minimize lifting, but no luck. I will try with a different brand and c...

Re: Flying cold end?

I used to have my cold end extruder "flying" above the effector, but there is still a bowden tube connecting it to the hotend. I ditched it... not because of the weight, as it was using a counterweight pulley, but because of the mass. When the machine was printing, the flying extruder boun...

30 is fine. Yes, just reduce retraction distance and see if that solves it. Also, it looks like it's a part with a lot of retracts after another right? It could also be that. If reducing retraction distance doesn't solve it, you could try setting a "minimum travel before retract". Mine is ...

Re: Filament Jam E3Dv6

Hello, try with a much lower retraction distance and see how it goes.
If you see a lot of stringing increase it a bit, but I wouldn't go over 3mm.

I would recommend:
2.5mm retracts or lower
25mm/s retract speed

PS: by 190 you mean PLA extrusion temperature or retraction speed?

Re: Print Quality Degrading mid-print

Image isn't showing for me.

If had to guess, you are retracting too much/fast and the nozzle gets clogged.
Could also be a temperature issue.

Share your print speeds, temperatures and retractions so we can help you better.

Best of luck.

The newer socks have a much larger hole where the nozzle fits through almost completely. Many people cut out the nozzle from the older socks, just to prevent what you describe. PETG seems to stick pretty hard to the silicone. Along with the Aero I bought a pack of 3, but the older ones... I was loo...
