  1. I just wanted to make sure I have this right. Let's assume the nozzle is touching the bed right now. The distance between the bed and the bottom of the rod is 32 mm. So my Gantry Height would be 32 mm? If that is the case then the Gantry Height is the vertical distance between the tip of the nozzle and the rod holding the printhead? Thanks!
  2. Also wanted to add, Octoprint connects just fine to the printer.
  3. @Torgeir @wjbdesign @gr5 @GregValiant All of you have given me much to think about. Thanks! I have done a few more things: -flow rate has been adjusted to 95%. I am confident in this value. -the gantry (I think that's what it's called; the thing that moves the nozzle up/down on the Z-axis) was slightly lopsided. It is now square. I will check it again after printing. -the print head does not wobble. I need to check a few more things that were mentioned. Will report back. Adjusting the flow rate has had a significant positive effect btw. To be
  4. I printed a little box that didn't come out as nice as I had hoped for: So I thought that maybe this was all related to the TMC2209 stepper motor drivers I had installed so I decided to switch them back. But before that I printed the cylinder on the right (2209) and after switching to the stock drivers I printed the cylinder (same gcode file was used) on the left. All the bumps/pits are identical on both prints so much so that if this was a court case, there would be a conviction: It's hard to see in the picture but I'm not exaggerating in how identical the bumps/pits are
  5. I'm unable to connect Cura to my printer. I've tried sudo adduser xxx dialout sudo usermod -a -G dialout xxx Neither help (I replaced xxx with my username of course). I have to boot into windows to update firmware which is annoying. Anything else to be tried?

  6. @GregValiant I'll keep the Z Seam Alignment in mind for my next print. I have calibrated my extruder; it extrudes 100mm (+/- 1mm, this is the closest I can manage) when told to do so. I have also adjusted the flow rate. I'll report back on my next print. Thanks all!
  7. So I estimate that this was occurring at layers 120 to 200. I looked at the gcode and I don't see this maneuver taking place. Does the gcode contain ALL movements of the nozzle? I don't get it :/
  8. Hi there, I'm new to 3d printing. I noticed that during an x-axis print maneuver, my printer would stop at a certain point, move along the y-axis without extruding filament, return back and continue the x-axis maneuver. There was seemingly no purpose to the maneuver because no filament was being extruded. The steps are marked in yellow in the attached picture. This resulted in an artifact in the print marked A. Any ideas as to why this was happening? Thanks! davidramiro v1.4.6 firmware (Marlin 1.1.9) Anycubic Mega S Cura 4.8.0 Manj
