  1. Here is my first successful 90+ minute print, here is hoping it's not my last! It's a copy of http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:25357 , printed using Cura, 1.2mm wall and base thickness, PLA, 45mm/sec @210C. This machine sure gives great results when the bowden tube stays put!
  2. I'm trying to add duplicate .stl to my print area. I'm trying printing 4x Owens belt tensioners ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:12513 ). Is this something I can do inside Cura, or am I better off creating a new .stl with multiple copies then slicing this with Cura? If modifying the .stl is best, what software would I be best off using? Thanks again, CT.
  3. Thanks for the advice guys. I'm getting a strange intermittent problem, every now and then the nozzle dries up and the print gets really sparse. the thumbscrew on my extruder is pretty tight (almost to the bottom) and it indents pretty heavily into the filament. What is a good rule of thumb for how the extruder should be set? I've dropped the temp back to around 205C and for the most part it's running fine. Maybe the temperature is too high to compensate for what I'm doing with the extruder? I feel like I'm adjusting too much at once to know what's wrong, but any suggestion would be welcome.
  4. Hi Guys, Here is my second print, and the first one that's worked well. It's an owl ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:18218 ). I scaled it down to 50%, and printed through Cura on normal quality. The only thing is that my temp is set to 218C on PLA, seems high, but the print quality is great. Should I try dropping it down a bit, or is this ok? Thanks all.
