  1. The full scale PLA version came out fine. 19 hours. The stepper motors are hot, but I've printed longer (48+ hour) prints before. Maybe need to add some heat sinks. I think my next step is to try the Semi-Flex again with slightly different settings or try Cura.
  2. I printed a half scale PLA version and it came out perfect. Now I am in the midst of printing a full scale PLA version to see if I get same shift. Hopefully it doesn't do anything too crazy in the middle of the night.
  3. Here is my second attempt. I slowed the print down a little and I reduced the amps to the XY motors. And it still shifted at the same height! It did shift a little more this time. Since it shifted at the same height, I am now thinking that this is an issue with the slicer. Also, when the print finished, the bed did not lower and the downward fans stayed on (all night). I am going to post this question to the S3D forum as well.
  4. I have a LONG 30+ hour print going. The material is semi-flex. I sliced it in S3D. But it shifted mid print. Boo. It looks like it is still stuck in place on the bed. Everything looks fine and normal in the slicer preview. I know a lot of people have asked about this already and step one seems to be "check all of the set screws on the pulleys". But if the pulley set screw was loose, wouldn't it be shifting all over the place? Not just once? I have a fan blowing on the controller board. Any ideas other than the set screws. I will check them when the print is done.
  5. Version 1.0


    This is the first bad print I have had in a long time, and it sure was spectacular. It was an over night print that went out of control. Luckily all I had to do was heat up the nozzle and pull the blob off. Clean up the tip a bit and started a new print. I was really surprised that this didn't caused a nozzle clog.
  6. Version 1.0


    This is a random part for a machine at work. We were very impressed how it turned out since it has thin walls and big overhangs. I used the FAST settings in S3D with a few modifications. The filament is 3D Universe PLA.
