Re: Hobbed Bolt Clogging & Filament Stuck

Well mine has not plugged yet but I will try the suggested method first. I have worked around some pretty expensive and complex machines and would not have a problem removing and re- installing an extruder nozzle. Yes I can re-torque to 30 inch pounds. I have seen a lot of things screwed up by DIY ...

Re: Hobbed Bolt Clogging & Filament Stuck

Try this out with ABS... and see if it helps with your clogging issues?

Re: Better Print Quality

That's wild!!! IMO, to fall within those specs, you're looking at one of those non-consumer/high $$$ grade printers... :? Given the size, I was impressed by what you have accomplished this far!!! I'm by no means a pro, so please take my remarks with a grain.... ;) But my first thought is to swap to ...

Re: Unable to Print 148x148 Square on Mini

Good question... :? I've never actually tested the print size.... Being that even Cura doesn't like it, I would say that there is something dicked with their specs on their site.... "Print Area" should be just that.... and their printer and shipped software should support it. On the other hand, can ...

Re: No extrusion - etching on printer bed

I'm thinking that it's time to EBay this Mini, and move on... The more I print with it, the worse it gets... and being a super-duper nerdy 3D printer/hobbyist, is NOT what I'm after... :D Good luck... I'm tossing this one as a bust!!! What really sucks, is that I spent a good dime on 3MM filament, t...

Re: No extrusion - etching on printer bed

I had the same thing happen to me, and am also curious about the best way to go about repairing it, as well as prevent it... Although my printing has of yet, needed PLA, but I've stayed away from PLA just because of the clogging issues I've read about with LB's... I would guess that mine happened wh...

Re: cleaning routine problem

How much was it digging into the wiper mount?

While probably not the solution...

There is quite a bit of "wiggle" room with the mount, so you could possibly just loosen the two screws and situate the wiper pad to have it not hit the mount?

Revenant wrote: also i edited the standard start gcode in cura: the second to last line: G1 Z2 E2.5 F75 ; extrude filament back into nozzle
i changed the value for E, so more filament is extruded before the print starts.
Out of curiosity for a starting point, what did you change "E" value to?
Thanks

Re: Prints Starting with no Extrusion(Cleaning/Wiping Routin

The mini fan is running.... Thanks HTiLewis!!! Playing with the skirt does help!!! I tried to work around it, by putting a "band-aid" on the extruder idler design... This actually helped my blank extrusions(although not 100%), and seems easier to change filaments.. http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/...
