Re: Lulzbot Mini requires huge maintenance

... what the problem actually is. I'll do that. Also, if you have not tried a different brand of filament, do that. I have not had good luck with makergeeks, if that is what you are using. Hatchbox is low cost filament that prints well and is easy to source. I suspect that will help, yes. Unfortunately ...

Re: Lulzbot Mini requires huge maintenance

... from the same manufacturer, I'll have to tweak the nozzle temperature a little bit when printing some colors. I don't have any experience with MakerGeeks, other than a week of excuses why they are unable to provide a MSDS for their "FDA Approved" material, but have read enough horror stories ...

Re: Makergeeks filament, ugh, the struggles

I have seen and used worse filaments, but they were pretty regularly on out of spec for me two+ years running. PLUS material makeup consistency(glass transition temp) varied too much to stay with them. :(

Re: Makergeeks filament, ugh, the struggles

Yeah, ya know, I had 3 spools of the maker series PLA prior to this order, and I printed the F1 OpenRC project with them. It was flawless. Then this fiasco. I just can't afford, nor have the patients for such varied quality. What really did for me was when, on the THIRD replacement shipment, I told ...

Re: Makergeeks filament, ugh, the struggles

I've been using their Maker Series PETG from the grab bag almost exclusively for the past two years. My diameter is almost consistently 2.8 and it prints really well, here's one of my recent prints holding up to Texas Summer heat:

Re: Makergeeks filament, ugh, the struggles

Yeah, stay away from MakerGeeks, their stuff is garbage. I have a bunch I'm burning through on BS prints just to be rid of it. It took me considerably longer to learn my lesson, unfortunately. Poor tolerances, poor formulations, look ...

Re: Makergeeks filament, ugh, the struggles

... MIGHT work, but seems too thick. For small prints, it may not build back pressure, or get bound up, but for large prints, I wouldn't trust it. Makergeeks was very responsive and apologetic, but in the end, at least from their "grab bag" material, I can't recommend them. I will be moving on. ...

Re: Makergeeks filament, ugh, the struggles

Update #2:

They sent replacement spools, NEXT DAY!. What great service!

However...

BOTH SPOOLS ARE OUT OF SPEC!! (2.94 - 3.00) :shock:

Contacted and told them either send refund, or have someone test the next round of spools they send. They said they would test and resend.

Will update.
