Re: Major PLA curling issues

Wet sanding has always been superior to dry sanding. You only need a little water, either dip the sandpaper in water or use a spray bottle to spray on a little water. Of course, do this with the printer off. Dry sanding you may end up with dust on your electronics and axis rods, so.... choose your c...

Re: Major PLA curling issues

What's your Z-offset? It might be too far away. Mine is set too -1.50. I bottom out at 1.56. Also, It sticks too much, sometimes its hard to get the print off the bed at 60C. I set my bed at 55C. Another thing is if your PEI surface is too smooth, wet sand it with 1500 to 2000 grit sand paper. The c...

Re: Removing filament from the Aerostruder

I extrude 10mm, click on cool nozzle, watch it cool to about 160, push back on the spring and pull it right out no problem! For those who are experiencing stripping their filament, try turning that silver thumbwheel screw in the back next too the mounting plate (I think counter clockwise is the loos...

Re: Filament grinding

Why don’t you just chalk it up as heat creep is a problem with PLA and move on? No sense on mentioning that you should print with PetG or T-glase and all your problems will be solved cause you know damn well your problem will be solved only not with one type of filament, PLA. Have you read the this ...

Re: Filament grinding

Yeah I’m just saying that there’s been sooooo much discussion here on these forums about failed prints with PLA filament. Let’s understand that PLA has one of the lowest melting points of the most common filaments and is one of the cheapest filaments price wise. Unfortunately it’s melting point is j...

Re: Filament grinding

Upgrade your print head to the Aerostruder and be sure to purchase and put on the silicone soc. I’m able to do 12 hour prints with PLA with this print head (and this is with a .2mm nozzle) Filament is really easy to load with the aerostruder print head too. The stock printhead would often fail in ab...

Re: Cura 3.2.23: pause at layer

Where is this plugin? How do I get it? How do I toggle it?
I'm using Cura LE 3.2.23
Installed and Browse Plugins doesn't show a "Pause at Height" plugin
