Re: Print issues: stringing

Yeah wood filaments are notoriously stringy
As is PETG

Each filament does require some fine tuning.

Re: Print issues: stringing

First, if you havent already, do a PID autotune

Stringing is going to be one of two things...or a little of both...temperature or retraction.

Re: Dual pro head from Zmorph

That print head is impressive looking...I wish @Neotko, @Anders Olsson , @drayson . @Amedee and @Meduza were around for some input! We don't hear much about UM2 hacks like we used to!

I love my UM2+ but do wish I could make some changes for things like an all metal hot end and other tweaks!

Re: Creality Cr10s - BlTouch makes my printer not turn on ! Please help !

I wonder about the TH3D firmware tho...since they obvious sell a competing product....not that they would disable BL Touch or the like...but there may be some additional steps required.

I've not used ABS on any of my printers. My friend has and the smell was awful

Re: Dual pro head from Zmorph

Izzy is back! I was wondering...but you comment on my Facebook posts, so I know you are out there! I hope you have better luck with your Geeetech than mine. Mine should have failed whatever quality checks they do (or clearly do not do...like power on the machine. Had they done so, the knob not work...

You might toss this question out to the TH3D support group on Facebook. I'm not sure where to start with those listed issues

Re: Cura 4.0 Beta

I'm just so used to exporting from Cura, or Simplify3D, then uploading.

I just make a directory on my computer "Octoprint for FT-5" or insert another printer name :)

Re: Cura 3.6.0

I use my laptop as my desktop...so usually Never Off On Power on everything. I didnt go with the Xeon, it was a bit more than I wanted to spend

It's a beast of a laptop and I love the huge screen. I could never go back to a 13 or smaller...I can endure a 15"

Re: Cura 3.6.0

I just recently installed Ubuntu on a one-year old laptop, I hadn't thought to try Cura on it.

Sadly, Cura runs slow on my brand new Lenovo P72 laptop. Intel i7 with 6 cores! They really need to optimize their code
