  1. Hi BJohan, I am not able to reproduce this issue. Could you save your project as a .3mf file and upload it? Jos
  2. Hi Pong, If by fix you mean, static, like it won't change, I would suggest adding an IP reservation in your DHCP server. Good luck, Jos
  3. Hi Tojiero, To me it seems like the problem you are describing could be caused by a number of things. From my experience the main things causing fragile crumbly like parts are; Under extrusion. Old filament / Improper storage. Under extrusion itself could also be caused by a number of things; Extruder jamming or skipping. Incorrect material profile, or slicer settings. Clogged or contaminated nozzle. To identify the root cause of the problem I need some more information. Have you always had this problem printing this material? Do you have the same problem when printing other materials? Have you ever printed with any abrasive materials? How old are the materials you are printing? And how are they stored? What kind of slicer settings do you use? Did you experience any issues with the extruder while printing? Material grinding, or step skipping? Thanks, Jos
  4. Hi Chacaman, If you really want to do this you could add custom 'end G-Code' to in the printer settings that retracts the filament x-amount after every print. This will cause the purge extrude no material. You can find the 'end G-Code' settings under Settings>Printer>Machine Settings. You will need to add something like M83 followed by G1 E-10 or something. I have to say that I would not recommend doing this. Since the purging process is actually designed to make sure the flow of material is stable before starting the actual print. In addition to this the purging will prevent the material from 'curling' up and sticking to the nozzle when the plastic starts coming. The amount of plastic lost during purging is very small so I wouldn't worry about it too much.
  5. If you have access to dual extrusion you could try printing the support with PVA, and dissolve it in water once the print has finished. It might still leave a rough surface finish on the blades. To get the blades as smooth as possible I would suggest using a variable layer hight. This setting is called 'Use Adaptive Layers' in Cura 4.5 and can be found in the 'Experimental' settings.
  6. Hi chaylensedam, Please take a look at the following topic: Did this help you resolve the issue? If not could you upload a picture with the fan cover removed?
