Re: Theycallmejohn's AO-101 prints!

That is Z axis wobble. Aligning the Z-Axis connectors correctly will get rid of that too.

Re: What settings to use with Kisslicer on the TAZ?

Even if it was online the KISSlicer forum would be useless to you, it's been invaded by spammers for a long time. I checked it out last week and the amount of spam topics was staggering. Maybe the forum admin is finally doing something about it. I've read elsewhere that KISSlicer's future is in que...

Re: Would Like To See

Most likely that will not happen with the stock "print" functionality of programs as those send a 2D projection of what you want to print to the driver. What you would need would be a plugin for each program that can either send the 3D model to the driver to be sliced/printed, or slices the 3D mode...

Re: Can someone define the Profile Configurations?

Is there any high quality profiles for AO-101 series printers? Only if users create it. You should play with the setttings on a part and see what they do. I used their settings as a reference then made my own for Slic3r and it made it so much easier to use other slicers too. I use Kisslicer more th...

Re: Would Like To See

The current driver for the RAMBo and RAMPS electronics work well, since the printers are responding to standard gcode commands. Hopefully they choose to support the community driven formats. The reason they are doing the print functions the way they are is to make it easier for people to use 3d pri...

Re: AO-100 nozzle depth during print

I know this might be deviating a bit from the thread subject but what nozzle are you using and why did you choose it? I'm wanting to build a new printer that can do PP and maybe PVC eventually.. still trying to learn about thermoplastics.. I have 2 of their nozzles, one is v1.3 and the other is the...

Re: Extruder Struggling

Well now I did it... I messed up the nozzle. I tried to take off the nozzle without heating it up and I ended up stripping out the threads on the shaft. I think the nozzle is still salvageable. I am very frustrated with myself because this now mean I won't be able to print for another weekend!!! Do...

Re: AO-100 nozzle depth during print

One more.. it's been a learning experience and when i graduate to a smaller diameter nozzle, i'm sure the prints will be nicer with a slower print speed. http://imgur.com/a/IbJrE#1 That's for sure, print speeds with a smaller nozzle grow rapidly. I used to use a 0.25mm nozzle, but my draft settings...

Re: Nozzles clogging

In slic3r don't set bed and nozzle temps, do them manually. If you use Kisslicer, then set your bed temp and let it work up for a while, then you can start up the print. I normally warm the bed to 80c-90c before turning on the heater for the nozzle. Normally use 110c for bed and 220c-230c for ABS. I...

Would Like To See

I would like to see a Windows 8.1 printer driver, so that when more apps that allow 3d printing to work will have no problems. So far there is only one, but that could change quickly. Makerbot already has drivers available for their printer, as does Up.
