Re: Considering the Ulitmaker 3.

Just been to a fair in which Ultimaker had a demo zone. I must say their prints are very very precise, resolution is great. On top of that, the machine is extremely silent compared to the TAZ. If you get one, there are several options. Paying a little more gives you a 24/7 1year warranty on all part...

Re: hexagon hotend slow to heat up

Do you have your filament cooling fans turned on? If they are going full blast it will take along time for the heater to heat. Try heating with them off. If it still takes that long, you either have an over powerful barrel cooling fan, or something is starting to fail (probably the heater core or t...

hexagon hotend slow to heat up

Hi guys, Have anyone experienced this issue with the hexagon hotend? It takes about 10min or more, for my hotend to reach 240, and everything above 160 seems awfully slow. I did the PID tune and still there is this problem. Maybe I have positioned my cooling fans too close to the heat chamber, or is...

Re: micro blower fan to regular axial fan change

The micro fan was barely adequate when it was running at 100%. Anytime the fan started to fail and blow slightly less air, folks printing heat conductive plastic like PLA would have heat creep jams in the cold section. That and the fans are hard to source and expensive are the reasons I imagine the...

Hello,

Re: Cura LulzBot Edition test packages

What's your current retract setting? It could be that you are retracting a little bit too fast, resulting in lost steps and therefore a blob during prime. Or you are priming to fast, then it squirts out the molten filament inside the nozzle (like a spray flacon). It's 3mm length 35mm/sec speed trav...

Re: Cura LulzBot Edition test packages

No, and that's a good one. If you need extra length on restart, that's a sign of something going wrong and no solution.. Hey that's actually the opposite of what I need. I was hoping that there are built in settings for extra length on restart, because I would have liked to turn them off :) I seem ...

Re: Cura LulzBot Edition test packages

Hi,
Anyone knows if Cura has 'extra length on restart' option?
I am talking about retraction
