  1. @neotko. I really liked the spring explanation, it talked a lot to me.

    Btw, for now I will have to wait for the nozzles to arrive. Then I will clean/tune/install (both of my printers). And I will do it carefully and using all the topic's information. Also I will take pictures (some relevant ones, and some generic ones in case). Hoping very hard it is a "crap nozzle issue".

    Thanks again guys and see you at the end of the week!

  2. Because I trusted the shop... I did want to pay more than 10€ for a no-name nozzle (Makershop) so I asked my local shop. It sold me a 5€ no-name one but which has been used by them. So I trusted it =). But I do think it comes from AE...

    Btw, I searched a bit about nozzles to be able to answer properly to your questions and I was wondering if buying this nozzle would be a good idea -> NOZZLE

    Alternatively, I was wondering if this block combined with this nozzle would help me printing with more reliability... As I have to make lots of parts.

    Honestly, I am not comfortable with my current nozzles, and even if the problem is elsewhere, I would be able to know it is not the nozzle!

    Next thing I doubt about is the glassplate, and again, I find the 35€ non-official neither tracable one from Makershop a bit expensive...

  3. Ok, the second one is making the same thing now, not as worse but still, there are gaps getween the infill and the outline!

    I am so desperate... I spend more than 5000€ for these two and after a year of PLA printing it's like I just have to dump them and buy new ones! The fun part is that you are 2 very experimented guys, I am a mechanical engineer, the shop that sold me the things is involved and still, it's not solvable... I really do not know what to do!

    (Oh, I am very grateful about you helping me btw, thanks again).

  4. Looks like it is coming from an un-tuned chinese prusa i3... too bad it cost me like 2500€ more ahahah :p

    The filament is RepRap EmotionTech, PLA green, 3mm (good quality I guess?). Stored in plastic bag with silicate and inside a piece of furniture with an electric (peltier) air dehumidifier. I bought it 6 month ago max. I used the "Pla 210 190 F100 Test5 Ulti Arjan", directly put on the sd card.

    The fans are working OK yes, I mean they are OFF the first layer and ON after. And the one to regulate de nozzle temp is working OK.

  5. So the feeder wheel is in good condition for you? No need for change? About the tension, I lightened it a bit because I had to force so as to insert my filament. Is there a rule to tune this properly? I guess it is a rule of thumbs where you need marks but no skipping or grinding... I will try to have the bites twice as marked as on the pic and to print the thing again!

    Thanks for the words about the motors, basically you are saying they are heavy duty piece of hardware and that we are far from heavy use :p

    (I re-tag @ultiarjan because I think it did not work on your message).

  6. I think you are going to laugh a bit... I printed the test file yesterday night!






    And I was wondering if the feeder wheel could be damaged? It seemed it was not but as the printer ran with a 1.75mm nozzle, smg must have been harmed in the process, musn't it? For me it is fine regarding the pictures, but I prefer to let you be the judge:




    Oh and you know what? I noticed the same problem started to occur on my other printer... (very sligthly) Since the moment I knew about the nozzle I was wondering if it could have harmed the extrusion motors? As it put a lot more effort to push the filament?

    Thanks =)

  7. Do you think it would be a good idea to continue playing with the slicer's parameters? I will receive proper 0.4mm nozzles soon to continue with them, as it emphasize the issue it would be easier to see...

    Also I will try to get a glass plate made by a glass worker (not borosilicate but it would be a cheap testing solution to see if there is a plate problem!).
