Re: Autoleveling with PETG

Like said before by mwester I closely watch probing when printing with PETG, retract enough before probing, clean it.
I do it manually with fingernails when PETG is hot (180C), it comes off like gum. it's hot but doable if done in one swift move ;)

Re: Linear Advance

Ha... I may end up there. I do have Slic3r PE installed, have tested it a little but haven't spent the time to really dial it in or create profiles for everything. Well, you can use mine as a start? Mind that I use bleeding-edge Slic3r builds from https://dl.slic3r.org/dev/. Be careful that wipe co...

In Slic3r, where do you embed the K-factor? Do you just add a M900 in "filament settings, custom g-code", or is there some other spot specifically for K-factor?
Exactly there.

Re: Linear Advance

update: first PLA test shows best for K50 and it's quite apparent! Does layer height affect the calibration and K-factor? I suspect it does, since layer height affects volume, but haven't tested. I used 0.25 for the calibration test I did -- what layer height did you use? I (only) used the default ...

Re: Linear Advance

I've used Lin Advance ever since I built Mini firmware myself and am quite happy with it... @mrvanes - Since activating this is just uncommenting one line and compiling... I have to try it. What is a good starting K-factor for the Mini? Sorry for late reaction, was busy last days. I never did the c...

Re: Linear Advance

I discussed this with Marcio while debugging the new Mini firmware and the answer was simple: "Test, test, test, test, time". My reply that K0 would turn off Lin Advance for those not interested was that that wasn't tested (enough) ;) I've used Lin Advance ever since I built Mini firmware myself and...

Re: Endstop Triggering on Lulzbot MINI

This just happens too often, AO should really rethink the hotend/heater design: https://forum.lulzbot.com/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=6219&p=35958#p35958 In my case it was not the insulation that was penetrated, but the fact that it is loose and moves up away from the heaterblock exposing bare heater leads...

Re: Option to wipe hot end periodically during print?

I dialed down the extrusion multiplier (Slic3r, 0.95) untill there was negligible build-up of PETG on the nozzle while maintining build quality.
