Hi all,

Its printed, finaly.

@gr5: Yes, I used the SD. USB is not working at all in combination with my Mac. I will contact support to solve the "skipping" problem Thank for your advice. Its rather inconvenient if it blows out after an hour printing.

@Iluminarti thanks again. Most things worked out. Hereunder the results.

It skipped again, but now after 30% of the fourth layer. It managed to come over it at the fifth layer so I didn't abort the print.

After it was ready you could see the effect on the side (bad bonding)

This morning however, it was ready. And I'm happy with the result

The print is pretty accurate to:

will It Fit

perfect Fit


it fits perfect, as designed o the z-axis of our little beast. Ends well all well.

    Glad you got it working! Hopefully UM will be able to help you fix the problems, so that the skipped layer weirdness goes away.

    As a test, I printed your gcode last night, at 230º, on a 60º bed, with well-spread glue stick. I was pleased how well it turned out - there was no skipping, no warping, and the surface finish was really smooth, with no signs of any feed problems.
