"Wait a moment for the printcore to cool down" for minutes and for no reason

Recommended Posts

Why do I have to wait for that all the time? Just changed print core. Apparently the machine though it had filament in (and asked when filament got out of printer). I changed from an AA core to a BB core - i.e., there IS no material in the core otherwise I could not change. And the PLA that once was in the printcore would of course not be used with a BB printcore for PVA. So - stupid it thinks is has material and stupid that I have to wait minute after minute for it to cool down when I just want to move on and add material to the core, where I have to wait for it to heat the printcore. Come on. Everything is so much faster on my cheap Chinese printer.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
