Re: TAZ 5 Stops Mid-Print

New observation on an old problem. In the past this has been blamed on everything from bad sd card, usb cable, power fluctiontions, etc. Everything short of phase of the moon. Quick summary -- I've gotten new sd cards, don't print via usb, got ups backups, yet we've continued to have these rare, in...

Re: Starting a 30 hour Dragon 3D Print

S3d is awesome, love it and I have found their support structures vastly improve my print quality. The pic attached is a before and after clean up Minions chess set (chess set was designed by Steve Haines, got it off grabcad). The hair, arms and legs improved because of the supports with this print,...

Re: preparing a new SD card

Okay, the official diagnosis was "wonky SD card." Reformatting fixed the pause issue and I am back in printing business. (Y'all can breath again) :roll:

Re: preparing a new SD card

Fixed it... my bad, had the SD formatted to FAT64 instead of FAT32. The 32GB is recognized now, fingers crossed that the fix is as simple as this and my print won't stop after 90% done. For those of us who do not know what we're doing, I guess this amounts to an SD card reboot.

preparing a new SD card

Neophyte question here. I've been printings some fun stuff, but recently encountered an issue where my prints would print about 90% and then just stop. Bed and extruder heat remained on, it was as if the print had been paused. I tried pausing and restarting, nuthin. I re-loaded onto the SD card, sam...

Re: Should I get Simplify 3D??

I love S3D and have found it easier to use as a newbie than Cura, I personally have gotten better results, but that may be because I find it easier to use? I just printed these purple Minion chess pieces (designed by steve haines from grabcad), it's hard to see some of the detail, but the hair and a...

Re: Temperature Controlled Enclosure

I've been considering building an enclosure too and find myself wondering just what exactly is needed/useful? Looking around I see everything from cardboard boxes (way to ugly lol) to some really sophisticated endeavors (the Hot Box comes to mind... I'd let the designer build me a house). I'm still ...
