One Hell of a time with stringing

Post by drewaustin »

What's your malfunction Joe? I'm just looking for help and you post garbage like this?

Well realistically, it doesn't. The text before each image is exactly the same. The only time the reader would see a difference is if they clicked each google drive link to see what the image was. You might want to try attaching the images directly to the post - and make sure the descriptive text is different. ;)

I don't have the time to do the whole click-wait-view-read dance, so I'm going to suggest that you have a rapid travel speed of 250mm/sec, 2.5mm retraction length, and a 4mm Z hop/lift. You might also want to back off the temp a little bit - say 190 and work your way up from there. Keep your print speed around 30-40mm/sec - you can run it faster once you've got a good handle on how it works when printing slowly. (the whole walk first, then run trope. :D )

Thanks Geneb, I hadn't realized I pasted in the same setting for for each one. Joe was a fantastic introduction to these forums, making think maybe I should seek out friendlier, more helpful, less obtuse arena for support. Your reply is helpful though as it a) identified my mistake, and b) gave some helpful pointers in spite of that.

I'll try the settings you suggest above when I get home.

Touchy. I merely stated I could not make sense of what the content of the post implied. I'm sorry you took offence.

Joe, part of the problem was your appear to have been a little too terse with your response. Pointing out the shown settings are the same, or that the pictures don't show well would have been more helpful, and largely better received. And while brevity is the soul of wit, small-talk is the heart of conversation.

Nah, the main problem as that the original post does not make sense, and Drew, instead of editing his post to make it clearer, goes off on Joe. Joe gave a short reply, Gene took the trouble to explain the problem with the post. Drew has not clarified his post.

Way to break it down Mac. Glad you're on the case.

It's very common to have a "hockey puck" because the bowden tube didn't make it all the way down.
