This is inserting the ABS into a system that had just printed PLA extrude a amply amount of filament to purge PLA. May need to up the fan s...

Re: Bleaching Colors

It sat on the porcelain bathroom sink basin for almost a year no stains their.

Re: HIC i3 - current firmware development information

It Appears that the "G28 Z Forbidden" is given when you home Z while At Home.

While using OctoPrint If I am at home and home Z in OctoPrint I get the "G28 Z Forbidden".
If I first home XY and then home Z in OctoPrint it works fine.

Re: Marlin 1.1.5

Not sure if this is the same but found a reason for "G28 Z Forbidden". While using OctoPrint If I am at home and home Z in OctoPrint I get the "G28 Z Forbidden". If I first home XY and then home Z in OctoPrint it works fine. In most cases only use Octoprint mainly for Preheating and video streaming,...

When in front of Red I can see the Blu's spool, and in front of Blu I can see the Red's spool and can be center and See both spools. However may try a different filament than PL...
