I have spent about 15 hours in total calibrating and attempting to print with the new V2 Dual Extruder. I can’t get consistent results. Anything larger than the size of a quarter fails catastrophically. The first print that I tried with support material ended with a solid block of ColorFabb nGen surrounding both extruders. I have leveled and re-leveled my bed countless times, checking all 4 corners for exact distances before and after leveling the extruder head assembly with the screw at the front. I have had my bed so level that both extruders were dragging over printed layers. Each print that I have tried has had major issues with the exception of one small keychain widget. Tech support can’t seem to provide me with any solutions other than re-leveling my bed and making sure that the extruders are level. To redo that once more at this point would substantiate the definition of insanity.
“Dragging” of extruders causing delamination, imperfections on side walls of prints, catastrophic stringing, and layer separation.
Ooze. Even with Ooze shield and wipe & prime tower, the ooze coming from high end filaments like co-polyester at lower than usual temperatures comprimises the quality of the prints.
The combination of the two issues resulting in birds nests of filament forming around extruders and destroying prints.
I am nearing my 30 day anniversary of ordering this tool head and I need to make the decision whether to keep it or return it. I really can’t afford to spend any more time calibrating this thing without results, but it is a shame to even consider returning it after so much anticipation and implied possibilities.
So what I’m asking for is success stories. Is there anyone in the community that has had good, consistent results with their Dual V2 printing large, high detail parts? Did you experience similar issues? What solutions did you implement to overcome the issues?
Thanks to any and all that can provide some insight.
