Re: Mini 1 having strange layer shifts

If the shifts are in the Y-axis, and given that you said you just added a dampener to the Y axis, re-check the set screw on the Y-axis pulley. A loose set screw or loose belt tension may be the culprit.

Re: Difficulty tightening washers after modular heat bed upgrade

You should have received with the modular bed a set of 10mm spacer tubes to replace the old 8mm spacer tubes on the original bed. I recall reading some others saying they got the wrong spacers (8mm instead of 10mm) -- if that's the case, or if you're using the old 8mm tubes from the original bed, it...

Re: E3D V6 heater/nozzle socks

Didn't know they made them with a larger cutout. They do, generally same price. Here's a link to one source https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Silicone-Sock-Original-Pack/dp/B077TKBKR3/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=e3d+v6+silicone&qid=1557418932&s=gateway&sr=8-4 . I mainly use them to keep the block clean, but t...

Re: E3D V6 heater/nozzle socks

I use the socks, and recommend them as well. Like @Keepbie81, I prefer the type that exposes the entire nozzle rather than the type pictured above. I have had *some* (not a lot) of trouble with them coming loose. I finally solved that by securing it with safety wire around the top of the sock. It's ...

Re: Lulzbot Mini Print Quality worsened after firmware

>> I did save and restore the z-offset and e-steps from the calibration sheet. Are you sure you didn't restore the E-Steps for the standard extruder (original calibration sheet), instead of the Aerostruder? Default for Aerostruder is around 420 as I recall, which is much different than the Standard ...

Re: Looking for better PEI to Glass bed adhesive 200MP 468MP fail ABS temperatures

Just to follow up... I decided to go with a 0.020" thick PEI with pre-laminated adhesive available on Amazon. The install was quite a bit harder than with the stock 0.010" sheet. First, because the 0.020 sheet is stiffer it is more difficult to apply and get all the bubbles out as you gradually lay ...

Re: PEI Film Woes

Cool- For glass, Taulman recommends 45C bed with PVA when printing 910. See the link below for more details. The A910 is really great stuff - just make sure it is really dry, as any absorbed moisture will cause bad layer adhesion and popping/bubbling. If you have any trouble, Taulman is really respo...

Re: PEI Film Woes

The PEI sheet gets lumpy after a few prints Would like to replace it with solid glass print, so that prints always have flat botom https://www.matterhackers.com/store/l/glass-plate/sk/M9HHF5ZW?rcode=GAT9HR&gclid=CjwKCAiAsoviBRAoEiwATm8OYHXQdw6mTuF-6qefCFTa9ruJERw4fXJ-BWWFjltfEcJyTcbP4J410hoCCxkQAvD...

Re: Looking for better PEI to Glass bed adhesive 200MP 468MP fail ABS temperatures

Just remember to adjust your Z offset to compensate for the increased height of the bed. That isn't making sense to me... The washer thickness sets the distance from the PEI when probing. The washers sit on top of the PEI, so the relative distance between "probe contact" and "PEI surface" should be...

Re: Looking for better PEI to Glass bed adhesive 200MP 468MP fail ABS temperatures

@coparatech - Thanks for the links! I found a seller on Amazon selling a "set", 8"x8" of the 1mm/0.040" PEI and 8"x8" of the 468MP adhesive, so I think I'll give that a try. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074XJLWL6 I wish the sheet/adhesive came "assembled".... The same seller offers the thinner...
