PVA issue and Print stop not functionning

Recommended Posts

Hello,

We've had this issue with our new Extended 3 (see image). The printhead hit a pile of accumulated PVA and was knocked open. The ambient temperature and humidity are within the operating range and we've been using the default printer settings for the BB head + PVA. Still, the PVA accumulates on the print surface and the printhead knocks the print over. It would only mean a failed print if it wasn't for the capacitive sensor + auto stop not functioning. We'll try to replicate but did anyone else have problems with the auto-stop not functioning? Is there a firmware update in the works?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
