Re: Is Lulzbot PEI sheet better than generic?

I agree that the 1mm PEI is the best choice. Its strong enough to flex the adhesive outward rather than bending and bubbling under heat. I replaced my original sheet with 1mm and have run at least a dozen 1kg spools of HIPS, ABS and PLA on it since, including giant box shaped prints that take up all...

Enclosure Epiphany!

I put my printer downstairs where it is pretty cool, so I began building an enclosure by setting a card table on top of the larger table where my printer sits and covering it with blankets. As I was doing so I happened to spot my kids old toddler tent! Its got some windows in it that need to be seal...

Re: Cura 2.6.63 Brim Settings

Took me a good while to learn to do it efficiently in Blender, and I had to redo it to make it thicker than the depth of a layer for Cura to pick it up and put it in as a slice, but I think its going to work great.

Cura 2.6.63 Brim Settings

Happy to report that I'm back to printing great prints, the Taz 5 is tuned in beautifully... but that puts me back in the Cura quandary. I have a design with many small feet all through it. Its basically an expanded version of the design below. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2750715 I print this ...

Re: Just downgraded back to Cura 20.01

Resolution: 1) Cheap material is more like 3.00mm than 2.85mm and harder to push through the heat tube. Since I have a bunch of it (and a backup head) I drilled it out a smidge larger as an experiment. I used a #29 drill, which didn't take out much material at all. 2) Broken tensioner... I don't kno...

Re: Just downgraded back to Cura 20.01

Thank you for the reply. And for the Cura clue-in. I get the ABS advantages. I have some. I’ll give that a shot, it’s just weird that the print was failing repeatedly in the exact same spot mid print. Seemed software-like. My trouble might be material related after all. I’m going to struggle along a...

Re: Just downgraded back to Cura 20.01

Update: Same issue with Cura 20.01 as 2.6. Looking into other factors now. Nevermind me.

Just downgraded back to Cura 20.01

Checking into the website after leaving my Taz idle for a while and picking it up again I saw Cura 2.6 and downloaded it and upgraded. I have printed many parts successfully in Cura 20.01 even recently. So I tried to print the Aerostruder backplate in PLA using Cura 2.6, I had not successfully print...
