  1. I originally posted this in the wrong section: I've been having that dreaded clogging while printing Colorfabb PA-CF. I have a 0.4mm hardened nozzle in an E3D V5 head, printing with 0.2mm layers. I found somebody in Reddit who hit the nail on the head. He said that when the extruder retracts, the fibers that were inside the 0.4mm hole stick to the end of the filament as it pulls back. Then when the extruder primes again, those fibers don't always re-align with the 0.4mm hole and sit on top of it sideways, clogging it. Now if this happened with an unfilled filament, that sort-of tai

  3. I ended up just calculating where the M600 should be and threw it in the Gcode manually because I needed to get my job over with. I also noticed that the Gcode always starts at layer -6, even with rafts of different heights. I did not try it with brim, skirt, or none yet.
  4. I've been using Cura 15.04.6 with my Monoprice Maker Select Mini V2 (uses Marlin flavor) for about a year because I liked the simplicity. I recently downloaded Cura 3.5.0 because I had a project that involved embedding a steel washer in the print and the "Pause" plugin never worked on 15.04.6. Long story short, I figured out that my printer doesn't recognize the M0 or M1 command. It does, however, recognize M600 with no arguments as a pause command. I was able to use the "Change Filament" plugin on 3.5.0 with the filament retraction set to 0 to get the printer to pause, but it would never paus
