Well, it looks like my resolution was premature. It worked well for a couple of weeks, then started failing nearly every print. So, over the weekend I printed a new shroud, and installed a new fan Monday morning. https://www.thingiverse.com/make:262362 Alas, even with the new fan and shroud, I'm sti...
Well, it looks like the desk fan solved the problem. My cover managed to print this weekend, so I've fired up another print this morning. Time lapse of the print is at: https://youtu.be/9Y1Sfq2Sqy8
PLA? If so, try pointing a small fan at the printer. If that corrects the problem, you probably have a faulty hot end cooling fan. I have had massive problems with those small stock fans. Yes, Push Plastic brand PLA, in red. I suspect the print fails when you move to the side walls because the amou...
OK, so I'm having trouble re-printing a part. I printed this part a few weeks ago, and it was by far the best large print that I've done. Since then, I've tried 5 or 6 times, and it's always failed as it makes the transition from the large horizontal bottom to the vertical sides. The failure that I ...

[snip] Fot printing, the ability of the hot end to melt enough filament per second and the quality you want to get are the limiting values. In reality, they should be absolutely equal. Anybody looked at how fast the hexagon hot end will actually melt and extrude filament? What would be a reasonable...

Anybody had adhesion problems after upgrading to Cura 19.12? I upgraded yesterday, and had nothing but trouble with every print. It looks like the initial layer line width is now set to 100% (based on going from quick print to expert and copying the settings over). I tried changing this to 125%, but...

You need to duct cold air into the electronics enclosure. If you don't have cool air flowing to that box, it will cook the $150 rambo board. You do not want the power supply inside the heated enclosure for any reason ever. It will melt. Build an acoustic foam noise baffle box separate for it if you...
