Re: Shifted Layers

First thing I would look at is loose bed or loose belt on the Y axis. I once had a print going on my 3DP-17 that started looking like that 5 layers into the print. Discovered all of the wing nuts for the bed on the table below the printer.

Re: Assembling a CR-10 - Any "gotchas" to be aware of?

I've used Blender to modify existing STL files, and OpenSCAD to design a few (look for me on Thingiverse). I tend to stick to the open (i.e. free) tools. I don't spend a lot of time on this part of the hobby, and can't justify expensive software when free works just as well.

Re: Printing miniature City - Is this feasible

I'm sure it can handle it, just haven't heard of someone doing what you describe. Nozzle wise, I think it can handle the larger nozzles as they are all the same thread. I have a variety pack with the largest being 1mm (stock is .4mm), but haven't tried any of them yet. The CR10 series printers aren'...

Re: Creality 10s pro

If I remember correctly, the printer just shows up as a serial port. Check to see that you have a new serial port when you plug in the printer. Then tell your program to use that port. Alternatively, get a Raspberry Pi (they're very cheap) and install Octopi on it. Safer anyway as with Windows, it c...

Re: Cura 3.6.0

I'm on an Intel NUC 6i5SYB with an i5-6260U 1.8Ghz processor, 32G memory, and 480G SSD. Both of my printers (one on either side) are attached to RPI3's running Octopi. I have them both setup in Cura (which complains with every update saying the configuration data is corrupt - ignore and carry on). W...

Re: Cura 3.6.0

Must be a Windows issue, as I just tested 3.6 & 4.0 beta full screen on a 3 monitor setup running Ubuntu 18.04. Went full on one monitor with menus just fine. I agree with the real estate assessment. Having that big toolbar on the top instead of on the side is not good, especially given 99% of print...

Re: Cura 3.6.0

@Roberts_Clif What OS are you running? I'll see if I can reproduce this on one of my dual monitor systems.

Re: Cura 3.6.0

@Roberts_Clif You need to make the Print Speed settings visible in the Preferences. From there, you can change the actual values. On my 3DP-17, it defaults to 60mm/s. I haven't honestly done any speed tests, or really much of anything with my 3DP-17 in several months.

Re: USB bottlenecks with OctoPrint?

Sounds reasonable. If you really want fast prints & octoprint, have octoprint download the gcode to the printer SD (very slow), then start from there. You lose most of your tracking, but ....

Re: Extruder wont extrude Hitop 3DP12

Are you buying 24V rated heaters? That could explain why you are burning through so many.

Re: Power Supply Smoked

Probably just a few blown caps. I've seen that happen. Back in the Pentium III days, there was a cap vendor in China that had a year of bad quality output. Thousands of motherboards and power supplies died that year.

Re: Assembling a CR-10 - Any "gotchas" to be aware of?

I use Ubuntu exclusively, and run Cura just fine. Not sure, but I believe Simplify 3D also has a Linux version, but that app isn't free. There are others to be sure, but these are the two top slicers, and Cura now has CR10 profiles (not sure how accurate they are, I have had my own for a year). Firs...

Re: Power Supply Smoked

If I weren't sick, you are somewhat close and I have a spare 24v PS for my 3DP-17. I'd run it up to you.

Good luck on getting back online.

I also have a spare 24v controller if it turns out that has a bad circuit.
