Re: Layer Shifting

Yes. I turned combing to 'skin only' per a few comments I found buried in a topic. Makes sense because the head was making moves that didn't retrace, but were long distances, and left filament behind that then built up. Trying to start over and find really good retract settings for my e3d v6 using P...

Re: Layer Shifting

As for print size I'm printing at 60% I just thought about something. The extra amount on restart (retraction)...I have that set to something like .4. Should that be -.4 (cura turns this orange)? It doesn't specify if positive means it pushes extra and negative means it holds back. If that is the ca...

Re: Layer Shifting

My travel speed was 120 but I bumped it up to 160 because 120 is sad. I'll try using z-lift and see what's what.

Haha I also have purple! I printed an elephant for my son about a year ago and it came out great. Hmm if you happen to go to the post office I'd definitely pay for the shipping + some but I don't want you to go to any extra effort. That does look pretty good.

Re: Layer Shifting

Err...what do you mean by sprockets? The little gears on the motors? I checked everything I could for tightness but that was just the jiggle-test.

Using Matterhackers PLA. I can try 200 again.

Re: Layer Shifting

No fans while printing PLA *aaaaaaaahhhhH!!!!* I can try that for sure. One last bit of information: Shifting only really happens on wider prints. Oh and I noticed that the hot end temperature, though set to 196, seems to drop to around ~193. Probably nothing but still not cool. This article is inte...

Re: Layer Shifting

Important update: When moving the effector around to feel for a snag I noticed something funny. My Y tower would slip back down if I went toward it so that the Y-carriage was considerably higher than the others. It would fall about 1 inch. I tightened it up to where it would only slip a little at th...

Re: Layer Shifting

Well I tried lowering the acceleration and jerk and it seems to be about the same. At around the same height, things shift pretty hard then it straightens again. So I tested the towers, moved the effector around and figured that one tower was a little tight, one a little loose. I reset to Z position...

Re: Layer Shifting

Thanks for the advice. Wasn't sure if that was what I should do. Set it to the 155, 155, 155, 165 values which I believe is where it should have always been. I can try bumping slightly more, because it seems to be 'better'. The result of the change is that it is a little wigglier all the way up, but...

Hi there, I have an issue with layer shifting with my Rostock Max V2. I have researched this issue for weeks without much in the way of results. Little changes here and there and still bad results. About a quarter inch from the plate, things shift to the left. I messed with the belts and it seems a ...

Had to reset everything and now it seems to be printing far less material than before. Flow rate is 100%, Heat at 200c, I che...

RMV2 - Control knob half-works

Hi everyone. I'm back. A few months ago I got my printer finally, after 2 years, nearly printing well. It was almost awesome! Then the SD card stopped working. So I swapped out to a new LCD and updated the firmware. The SD card worked...ish, but it set my origin to a weird setting so that the nozzle...

Re: Sudden stop during 1st layer, 0 deg -> Killed

I adjusted the height of the nozzle through the control panel but it thinks it starts at 178. Actually I started it after being off for a while and it thought it was at 0. It's haunted.

I'll go try to set the max_z now but haven't actually seen that on the lcd before.

Re: Sudden stop during 1st layer, 0 deg -> Killed

2 things to further the fml-ness of 3d printing: 1) I bought a raspberry pi. 3B+ because it was the newest. And the TFT. Of course, the old tutorials for setting it up are for the 3 or older, and the TFT doesn't work well with my old 3. Okay but enough about Octo...I got a non-GUI server running but...

It would be, except printing from MatterControl always gives worse results, even when using CuraEngine :( I'll work on it.

I have. I upgraded to a SanDisk. Now here's the funny part. I just successfully printed using MatterControl. The results are garbage by comparison to using CURA + SD, but it worked.

Re: Sudden stop during 1st layer, 0 deg -> Killed

Oh and thanks for these settings. I'll start fresh and see where that gets me. I have a lot of differences such as I'm using E3dv6 and a different effector plate which changes the offset, but most of this should be good.

PS - Are you using the 12v heated bed? Your PID is soooo much higher than mine.

Yeah Ultimaker uses 2.85. I do really like Deltas but dang this thing cost me a lot of money to have printed maybe 5 good models in 3 years. I got it just before my son was born. Life changed and I have no time to spend time on my printer!
