Re: SL .25 Micro printerhead, proper tension?

I straightened out the issue for awhile. (Coming back now to close this.) Your solution of slow incremental feed is definitely a useful process. For other people's data: I've been using up the last of my 3mm MakerGeek PETG, switching over to 3mm Filastruder PETG. I've been using a flat 230 degrees f...

Re: Quality on Mini 1 with SL .25 toolhead

I use the SL .25 on a 1.04 Mini - sometimes print .05mm layer height...usually stop at .1 for miniatures.

A Myconid Rotguard from Thingiverse - the tiny one was printed at .05. Image

SL .25 Micro printerhead, proper tension?

The stock printerheads (Mini 1.03/1.04) are pretty forgiving, but I've been having trouble getting a good tension on the filament feed for the Micro head - grinding off filament, where the filament can't feed anymore. I've experimented with tight, loose, and everything between. Once I start seeing t...

Re: changing nozzle size

I put in a new hotend assembly, which comes with a .35mm nozzle. A developer edition Cura threw up some red flags about a new printer head — and it won't say when you've successfully updated firmware. There are some things that you might need to dig through in Cura/Octoprint, beyond just changing yo...

Re: Hotend having a fluctuating temp?

Relaying information, in case it's useful for others. I installed a new heater cartridge. (I was going to do thermistor as well, but I think the store sent me the wrong part - a huge barrel-like thing with a couple of wires.) Didn't know how the original thermistor wire was supposed to look, running...

Re: Hotend having a fluctuating temp?

Thanks for the feedback, I'll look at learning the replacement process for a thermistor.

Hotend having a fluctuating temp?

From Octoprint: https://imgur.com/18j4q4e I've been printing with MakerGeek PETG for a little over a year at 230 (the attached shows 240, one of the experiments). The Mini just turned 2 years old...it's been a solid workhorse. Lately, it's been temperamental. Filament wouldn't extrude properly, sudd...

Re: Cura freezing on Mac during long prints

I've had this problem for the past year, on OSX 10.9 (currently 10.9.5). When the job starts, it kicks off a second Cura graphic in the bar (always). If the job goes beyond 2 hours or so, you can kill both of them separately, or just kill the primary. If you need to stop your printer beyond that poi...

Re: PEI sanding or alternate cleaning method?

Did the steel wool seem to have a lasting effect on the bed? Do prints stick to it more often now?

Thanks for the suggestion!

PEI sanding or alternate cleaning method?

I'm about 2 months into hobby printing - I just switching from my first kilogram of PLA to my first kilogram of HIPS. The changeover was fine - there was a fine tutorial on [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpT5j2pZVeQ[/youtube] by the folks here at Lulzbot. The PLA was a little tough to pull...
