  1. Thanks! I try not to change it randomly, I usually run the test using printurn with the extruder hot.I just tried puting it down a bit, but apparently its some other problem.
  2. Hi, I am having a problem where my machine is simply pulling too much filament. It happens with Cura and ocasionally if I use RepG. Truth be told I don't want to go to SF, because its way more complicated and I'm getting good prints with Cura (as long as they are small). I mean, they have to be VERY small. If the printing is over 10 or 15 minutes the pressure on the Bowden tube becomes inmense, causing it to pop out of the clamp, or something else. In one ocassion the extrusion wheel got sort of "eaten" by the extruder motor plastic gear. I tried changing the steps per e, but still, I'm down at 800 right now. Also my filament density (in preference window) is 1300, and the packing density (in the print config tab) is 1. Is that okay? What is the difference between those 2? My filament is 2.89 exactly which is the value I'm using. Is there any other setting that controls extrusion in Cura? Something like flow rate?? Thanks!
  3. Hi, I'm printing with 3mm PLA, usually with Cura or RepG using sf 50. However I'm not sure how to calculate the cost of my prints. In Cura I was able to set the price/kg preference and it makes an estimate when I slice but not sure how accurate it is. There is also a price/m feature that I'd like to set but don't know how to calculate how much plastic (in meter, mm, foot, whatever distance measure) is there in a kg (or lb for that matter). Also, the default filament diameter in Cura is 2.89, but I haven't been able to measure it exactly since I don't have a scaliper or micrometer, is this really important?. So is this Cura estimation good? Anybody is using something more precise? Thanks a lot, Arg3D
