Re: Getting to stick

I find ABS juice on PET sheet works really well. About 60ml of acetone and 60 to 80 grams of ABS cut into 10mm lengths. I wipe the surface down with a tissue dipped in ABS juice. It hardly leaves any visible signs on the surface. Printing PLA with the bed at 50C and so far after 7 prints I still hav...

Broke my herringbone gears, and fried stepper motor?

So I think a small piece of filament must have landed between the herringbone gears as a few teeth on one side of the small gear have crumbled off. I love how these parts can be printed to fix and upgrade the machine, but I don't have any friends with 3d printers. Looks like the Lulzbot spares http:...

Re: Plowing on 0.15 layer for some areas

Printing a few on a plate to allow it to cool more will help for fine "spire" like parts. Do you mean print 3 or 4 together so that by the time it comes back to the first part the previous layer would have cooled a little? I Played with some settings and getting some straighter shafts on my last pr...

Re: Plowing on 0.15 layer for some areas

The two thumb screws on the idler are 10mm from top of screws to the plate they first meet. I followed this from the manual -I think. I've attached the Slic3r config (config-200s_jason) for my first print in the photographs. I reduced the infill width thinking it would prevent the excess plastic on ...

Re: Plowing on 0.15 layer for some areas

I tried with 0.2 layer height and reduced all speeds down to 30mm/s and I'm no longer getting plowing. But now it's not extruding anything and the hobbed bolt is starting grip deep into the filament, almost chewing it. I'll try to find a middle ground with these settings tomorrow or am I on the wron...

Plowing on 0.15 layer for some areas

I'm using the Planetary gear model as a reference (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:23030/#files), specifically the part at scale 150% which holds the 3 planet gears in place with 3 thin shafts. When printing at 0.15 layer height the base comes out beautifully but as it comes to the thin shafts it a...
