  3. Hello Forum, im printing the same file in both printers (u2, and u3) basically is an extruded HEXAGONAL grid. each cell has an 2 mm perimeter. the problem I'm having is that in the U2, the hex cells looks really like hexagon, the corners are really sharp. but the same file on the U3 the cornes are somewhat rounded... liking more like circles than hexagons.... both printers at 40mm/s. do i need to tweak the erg values on the U3/? many thanks in advance...

    U3 Stops to print randomly while printing with WIFI

    hey Daid: im using Cura 2.4 and the Firmware is the last stable version - 1) until now it only happened while WIFI printing. - 2) Yes, cura was Monitoring the Printer - 3) the Printer doesnt respond, ist frozen. - 4) since the Printer is frozen, any reading is impossible. - 5) im going to send the logs, i have to wait for the Problem to happen again, it is random.

    PVA not Sticking to PLA

    thanks, now it works better, but theres no other support material that can be dissolved in water? i mean after all, is not so easy to print with PVA, and what i hate most is that i need to clean the nozzle so often! because it doesn't sticks properly, the nozzle catches the PVA that wasn't attached properly to the layer, and it stays there in the outside of the nozzle and it turns dark and sticky.

    PVA not Sticking to PLA

    yes im using standard profiles for PVA, that means in numbers : speed 60 and temperature 225 C, which ones are you using?

    PVA not Sticking to PLA

    maybe using Scaffold there more chances of bonding?

    PVA not Sticking to PLA

    at the beginning the combination PLA/PVA worked like a charm, now im having adhesion problems (PVA printing on top of a PLA layer). is it related to hardware problems or is just the PVA filament is affected somehow by humidity (i store my PVA spool on a ziplock bag and TONS of Silica bags)

    U3 Cores

    hello Forum. in the past (U2), it was a good idea to have a nozzle set for each the of material (PLA, ABS, and so on), because to the different material characteristics... now in the U3, we need to do the same? does anybody knows if printing normal PLA and Bronzefill with the same core will lead to problems, (i.e. clogs) best.

    thanks! it worked! but then for remote control of the printer then we will need to wait for that App? cheers!

    i mean to buy a u3 build plate and use it with a u2+ what about the retractions options while printing on a u3? i think Im blind! i cannot find them on the menu screen!
