    PVA Issue

    Having an issue with supports. Why is there support outside of this model. There is no overhang at all?
  2. Existing file prints fine (pre-15.1 gcode file). Made some minor adjustmets to the supports in the print with Cura 15.2 and now i'm getting some overlap on some of the edges. Tried re-leveling and reloading filament but still prints the same. Take a look at the picture at the link below. https://www.dropbox.com/s/rmu7sqzd2p0hwqc/2015-02-28%2023.26.30.jpg?dl=0 Settings- Layer height: 0.15 Shell thinkness: 2.0 Bottom/Top Thickness: 1.2 Fill Density: 20 Print Speed: 40

    at a complete loss

    I have been thinking about printing a new feed but i'm lost on how to do it. I can download and print but do I need any additional parts that aren't installed on my existing feeder?

    Is this normal

    For the last couple of days when I'm doing a print there is a faint grinding or could be a belt slipping. Not causing any printing issues but I want to take care of my machine. I've included a video that you can watch. It only happens when moving from right to left and it happens in this video twice. https://www.dropbox.com/s/y62z20lf4c8cjoc/2014-12-24%2013.27.06.mov?dl=0

    Stringy Print 1st layer after Support

    Think I fixed the problem. Changed Layer Height from 0.20 to 0.15 Changed Print Speed from 35 to 40 I was originally printing in two parts but I was worried about durability. The tip on the top slides into a belt clip. Never thought of putting threads on it! Also having some issue getting Cura to print the parts separately even though "Print one at a time" is check.

    Firmware update

    You can create a Process and call on it anytime you need it. Processes are the same as the settings within Cura but you don't have to load a profile from somewhere else on your computer. it's saved in Simplified3d. It's a really neat feature.

    Firmware update

    It would be nice if you could save the profiles in Cura kind of like Simplified3D does it. Tried Simplified3D and had a lot of accuracy issues.

    Stringy Print 1st layer after Support

    It would be when the first layer of shell is printed over the support layer. the second layer is sticking fine but the first layer that is touching the support material is stringy.

  10. I am working on a project that i'm printing an octagon and i'm using the follow settings: Layer Height: 0.20 Shell Thickness .8 Bottom/Top Thickness: .8 Fill Density: 25% Print Speed: 35 Bed Temp: 62 Nozzle Temp: 205 Support Type: Touching Buildplate Lines 90 degree 15% infill X/Y Distance: 0.5 Z Distance: 0.15 The problem that i'm having in that the first layer that prints over the support material is stringy.

    Drive Motors Hot

    Drive motors very hot on both sides. Anything I should look for? Does't seem like it should get this hot from moving some belts. Let me know...
