Re: def has started to appear frequently destroying prints

The tricky thing about intermittent electrical issues is that they're intermittent. You get something making contact that's not supposed to make contact (or something not making contact that is supposed to make contact), but only when just the wrong vibration happens in the machine. Consistent issue...

Re: def has started to appear frequently destroying prints

That's useful info. High temperature is low resistance. You're probably looking for someplace that's not insulated properly and shorting out. Could be the thermistor itself or anywhere the two wires to the thermistor could touch each other.

Re: def has started to appear frequently destroying prints

If the temperatures are jumping abruptly up and down you have a thermistor wiring problem. If it's going smoothly, check wiring, drive voltage, and PID.

Re: Squishy handle.???

The cooling settings have a minimum speed, so as cross-sections get very small like that, the print speed stops slowing down and you still deposit plastic on plastic that's still molten. You need to kill some time. Printing a second copy of the part or a column spaced far enough away for a significa...

Re: Defective part file?

Is this part using the same roll of material as the ones that are working? Sliced with the same settings? I suspect this part is doing more retractions than the others, which reveals an underlying issue with a partial hot end clog or problem at the hobbed gear. What hot end and extruder drive are yo...

Re: FSR + DuetWifi

I've never used KISSlicer, but you have to change it to actually use the coordinates you want to use. It will output completely different extrusion commands all the way through the G-code as a result of the mode you select. Putting the command in the start G-code just makes sure the machine will int...

Re: Possessed Printer

That dip happens too quickly to be a real dip. I'm still saying thermistor wiring problem, which can also produce the noisy region and the sudden jump back up over the setpoint when clean contact is restored.

Re: Possessed Printer

The noise, decouples, and some of the print quality issues will probably be because of an intermittent connection somewhere in one or both of the thermistor circuits. That needs to be fixed.

To opine on the printed part it would help to know what it was supposed to look like.

Re: What happened??

Every time it starts building the part in a different plane, it's losing track of where it is. This can happen if a belt or gear slips or if the nozzle catches on something and causes a motor to skip.

Re: PID values for HotEnd

I don't remember what the graphic in the manual shows, but full power during ramp-up would be normal. You might log the values and do some more tuning to try to kill that 10C overshoot, but it's not horrible the way it is.

The image of the drill bit was my way of performing the chambered edge on the bowden.

I used several bits of larger diameter as I stepped the wall thickness down ...

My experience has been that PETG has inferior temperature resistance compared to ABS. I melted a PETG dashcam mount when I left it up in the summer sun. Its ABS replacements have not met the same fate.

Re: H2 Hacker Z axis not moving...

M119 doesn't change anything. It just prints the endstop states to the console. I don't use it often enough to remember the convention, but the states are High or Low and they should all be the same when the endstops are not triggered and reverse when the corresponding endstop is triggered.

Use the gcode console to pass it an M119. An open on the endstop will cause that axis to think the endstop is triggered and it may not move or move only subtly. Just to rule out that possibility...

If you are running the stock hot end and haven't messed with the thermistor settings in the firmware it sounds like a wiring problem. If you unplug the temperature plugs from the board and check the resistance at the leads you should get something near the 80-100 kohm range depending on your room te...
