Re: Matter Hackers Build Series PLA - Profile

Writing down your profiles and what you’ve changed is definitely a good idea, especially with so many variables and combinations of all the settings. Some things you can do to speed up printing are: increase your layer height, increase your initial layer height(don’t go more than 85% your nozzle’s w...

Re: Mini Z motor grinding noise and binding

I had this exact symptom on my TAZ 6. This quick re-alignment/ synch procedure fixed me right up! Thank you for sharing this tip!

Re: Duel V3 Heat Creep Fix

This is the best solution to the heat creep problem on the dual v3 and I’ve tried all the other solutions with little to no improvement. With this setup I was able to print through a whole role of PLA within a week and printing back to back to back! Previously I was practically guaranteed a print fa...

Re: [Dual Extruder v3] Filament Stops Feeding, Ruins Print, Can't get out Easily

I can confirm that the 1.5 to 2 hour mark is about the time my PLA prints would fail on the Dual Extruder v3. I doubt turning up your speed from 40mm/s will make any real difference, I use the default profile's speed setting of 60mm/s and still experience failures around the same time you do. Both e...

Re: E3D-v6 changing filament is an issue

If you pull it out when its hot and melted there's a good chance the filament will cling to the components in its path like hot gum on the ground. Then that filament will cool and cause blockage with no good way to warm it up and soften it. Not a literal cold pull at room temp but rather a warm cold...

Re: [Dual Extruder v3] Filament Stops Feeding, Ruins Print, Can't get out Easily

Very possible! Definitely with PLA. The picture you uploaded looks like nGen filament correct? How long into the print? What's your printing speed? Are you printing with a 2nd filament in the other extruder? If not I suggest getting the Aerostruder print head with a silicone soc for single filament ...

You say TWICE but you don't show all the detail. Here's more of the section that you left out: T0 ; select this extruder first M82 ; set extruder to absolute mode G92 E0 ; set extruder to zero G1 E-15 F100 ; suck up XXmm of filament T1 ; switch extruders M82 ; set extruder to absolute mode G92 E0 ; ...

Re: How to replace aerostruder Thermister

1.) A soldering iron can melt the point where the plastic is on the heater block and then use some tool to transfer the melted plastic too. 2.) You can heat up the tool’s point(screw driver or hex key), then insert it through the plastic and unscrew. 3.) replace the heater block along with the therm...
