Re: Please help me to fix this print.

@LePaul I hadn't looked at the spec on the ApolloX site (and you didn't specify). Thought you were having a senior moment. :P

(No offense, I get them too).

Re: Bubbles under Build Surface

Sounds like heat expansion created the bubbles. I've never printed with ABS before, but you are running at boiling temp, so any air/moisture trapped under the tape will expand greatly.

Re: Please help me to fix this print.

The nozzle size looks unusual? I've never used a nozzle that small...I checked...they exist for super high detail, so that could be part of the problem? Actually, 0.4mm is the normal size for most printers (including all of yours, LePaul ). Looking at the images, it appears you are using a fairly r...

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

My CR-10S has been offline for almost a month (clogged and no time to work on it), haven't used my 3DP-17 in several months. On a non-printing note, My wife found Ikea (new entertainment center wall cabinets, new wardrobe for the livingroom, new gaming table, etc). Also, I quit my job at Intel and l...

Re: Polymaker Polywood filament

Have you tried different temps for different layers? Hotter tends to darken (scorch) the filament, lower temp is lighter color. Worked for me on my Hatchbox Wood PLA (although I had to sand and polycoat for it to show).

I've been to https://goo.gl/maps/oPsSXLmVd712 back in 2011. Was great. Plan on being in a meat coma for a few days.

Re: Has anyone seen the new Duale?

Ugh, also looking at the new Mosaic Palete 2 series. Can't decide. One is a whole new printer to play with, the other would work with both of my existing printers.

Decisions, decisions....

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

It will iron everything it considers to be a top layer, essentially any layer that doesn't have anything directly above it. Not just the highest layer of the whole print.

Re: Make GCode (starting script) Commands wait for G28 and G29 to finish before continuing?

I assume you have the EZABL provided firmware loaded on your printer? Otherwise, G29 will likely be disabled. Does the autolevel actually work? It should move the head and test Z 0 in several locations (matrix grid). Also, you should heat the bed prior to running autolevel. The headed bed can warp a...

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

Weird, on my Cura (3.4.1 Linux edition), the default is to print the infill before the shell and my prints come out great. I think the surface quality could be better if you turned on ironing mode. I have seen a surface quality improvement in doing so.

Re: The Twins

I'm surprised you didn't mount them from the top facing forward so you could see at a glance how much filament you have left.

Has anyone seen the new Duale?

Hictop released a dual extruder version of the CR-10S called the Duale. I see that the price just dropped significantly (it was $899 last month). My stock sale happens next week, may have to budget for it (I need a 3rd printer anyways, right?).

Re: Config.h for a 3DP-15

I recognize that control panel mod. :P

I did a quick google scan because I remember they had changed one minor thing on the 3DP-17 and relisted it on Amazon as the 3DP-14. It is highly possible that his is also like this, just a rebranded version.
