Re: Suddenly getting hairy stringy prints

My print shown is the hip of the Braq dragon, in Polymaker's PolySmooth, I'm about to test some retraction and fan settings for this material, there's stringy and hairy but this is ridiculous.

It's a pity you can't fit him with a taser or pepper spray to get them back, perhaps a capacitor discharge on a flexible PCB track.

:-) it's a language barrier problem, some things including humour don't translate correctly, it can be tricky between English and Dutch, but English and American is a whole new can of worms :lol:

Re: Has anyone used NinjaTek Cheetah?

Yes but you may get some drips, another thing to do is add a little sewing machine oil to reduce filament friction in the Bowden tube, the nozzle heat is high enough to burn it off and I've not noticed any real degradation of the printed part.

Re: Has anyone used NinjaTek Cheetah?

Looking at the spec it has a narrow temperature range but it is likely that it would print from 220,
Speed wise I would stick to 30mm/s for all and reduce retractions to about 1- 2mm enough to take the pressure off.

Re: Simplify3d basic guide

In S3D, On the machine control panel there are 3 macro buttons you can program, I did set them for atomic clean temperatures so Macro 1was heat nozzle to 210, macro 2 was heat nozzle to 96. Was ideal for atomic cleaning when having to do a lot of cleans with a messy filament. But because i didn't kn...

Re: Simplify3d basic guide

Re: Keeps clogging, filament pulls out faster than stepper motor pushes

Another good bit of kit is an electric adjustable heat hot air gun, I've used it a couple of time to help unclog micro nozzle of 0.1 and 0.15mm, a lot easier to use than a flame. You can precisely control the heat to soften and remove.
