Made on 3.6.12 Cuar with a modified Mini 2 machine (see above comment).

Have you dried your Nylon for 12+ hrs?
It looks like moisture to me but a dried reel would be a better tell.
Has anyone using a mini seen this recently? Hanna hasn't had any LCD freezes since she started working with 2 minis that have newer FW. (about 3/4 weeks of daily printing)
Has anyone else noticed this recently? I haven't been running minis.
Yes, I made sure to reset to default settings afer each flash, just in case.
The new .135 FW is working really well for me without an issue.
The shared settings such as bed temp and layer height will average when they differ from each other. I set it to 80-90 C because that was in the middle of all material temp needs (50-110) and it wouldn't adjust ABS or other high temp materials to a too low bed temp.
@karrad, do you think we should adjust the bed temp of No Material to best suit a specific material, (if so, which?) or should we just have our customers adjust it to their needs?

Update: @tutley created an improved fan mount, I will be testing and updating the PLA profile very soon, thank you all for your patience and feedback.

@alexei, I didn't see this until now, Ill get on it first thing on Monday, Thank you so much!
Thank you for Photos! :D
Polyflex is in "Experimental" can we update it while its in there or can we get Polyflex moved to "All"?
Alloy 910 only has 2 profile qualities. Can we get Standard duplicated into a High Detail Profile for updating?

@Hob Ill have some updates trickling in for PETG, ABS, and Polydissolve. Ill tag you when I post the Polydissolve Updates.
Try these bed temps, I double checked in the exported file.

has there been an issue with PLA not sticking to PLA?
Update: @tutley and I have been rapid testing an altered profile for Polymaker Polylite PLA.

I have noted that the "Support Extruder" will stay Default Hot End 1 and the Prime Tower Position will be defined by machine.
Support Layer Thickness and Build Plate Adhesion Extruder look good on my end, Thank you for looking into all those for us! 😄

@karrad The profiles need to have a final model test run, I was wondering if you'd like me to wait for the filament runnout setting in cura to run that test and then post or if I should run the test with a manual change of the fil runnout setting and then post.
All settings are saved and accessible in my Quiver settings spreadsheet.
@karrad and @tutley, I have working Profiles for ninja and I feel this is worth testing now. Shall I wait for the Cura update to test the new setting or just go ahead and set it manually and test it that way for approval?
@tutley ^^ This would be very useful.

Agreed, doing it in the the profile would be really nice and convenient but if not, some form of communication to the customer is needed.
I suggest turning your sensor off if you are printing flexible material, I do not have it on when i am testing it, I eats up too much time.

Here is a preferred order of movements:
May 16 2019
v5 (average diameter=9.469mm)
I have been experiencing this also, it used to happen very infrequently but has been getting steadily worse. my quick fix I am using for now is selecting "Recommended" and then re selecting "Custom".
My build was made yesterday after the revert of 3.6.10, however, I have seen this on all builds in the past at least once.
May 15 2019
I emptied my "dist" folder and rebuilt after we reverted, it opened and is working for me now.
I was able to verify this happening as well.
Last night I cleared my cache, and did a full new fresh build. No terminal errors:

I have been creating newer profiles not using Combing, it is working well and retractions are good. I have been unable to determine a significant difference with retractions when combing is off or on. I will reopen this if I gain more relevant info, otherwise I will assess for individual material needs in the future.
How has Quiver testing been going since the updates a couple weeks ago?
I am going to leave it at that location for now unless we hear something significant from our customers. In my experience I cannot get cosmetically decent parts with a random Z seam.
Closing this ticket, we can open a new one for future development and testing.
Closing this ticket. We can open a new one for future wiper development/testing.
@adam, We still waiting for this material with new packaging or can I close this?
I am still unable to Edit these settings on 3.6.10:
There are some nozzle switching issues on the first 2 or so layers.
May 10 2019
@karrad I havent notice an issue like this on my newer builds, I feel good about closing it down. We can make a new ticket or reopen if more reports pop up.
May 2 2019
Update about 3.6.9:
I am now able to Create new profiles and Update most profile settings. Thank you!!

@tutley that makes sense on my end. I think a focus on the quality improvement would be a good idea, if we tout higher speeds that our customers cant use when actually printing we may get a backlash.
Yeah, I dont think this is a good idea. We can claim the speed of the mechanics but we WILL NOT be able to make those speeds printable or usable for our customers. The issue isn't our machine, its the science of the material. Our machines already move faster than our materials can extrude from the nozzle in a controlled usable manner. We could increase temp and speed but we would completely lose control. If you reduce temp and speed, you increasing control, but you risk losing strength and speed. Its about the balance, not the limit.

Looks like settings need an update, not sure if this is something we missed a while back or something we accidentally updated inaccurately.
@karrad can we do a mass update to the Dual V3 settings for all materials?
SCRATCH THAT! I had the wrong material selected. it looks like I CAN recreate this. Im not sure what happening here but I will check out the settings and get them updated if needed.
I tried to recreate it here but realized that our "recommended" settings don't actually include a prime tower being set to default, did you change settings and then go back to the "recommend" option or was this straight from start up?
@Yahuba , Can you click on the "custom" selection instead of "recommended" and post what it says under the setting subheading "Dual Extrusion"? I would like to see if, in windows, it is pulling out of date info for the "recommended" settings. If you select the same profile quality in "custom" but it moves your tower position, then it is pulling bad info.
I was able to update printing temperatures on one of my created profiles. I am unable to update the layer height and support settings, those two are shared between nozzle. There could be an issue with the shared settings. When trying to updated settings I did make sure both nozzles had the newly created profile selected before I tired to update and it did not help the shared settings.
Confirmed on multiple materials for Taz Pro
Apr 29 2019
confirmed it is happening on the T6 Dual V3 also
Seems to be for all materials in all categories, I have confirmed "Experimental" and "all"
Confirmed for bridge nylon as well. look like all materials are having this issue
Also for PA-CF
only happening in Taz Pro as far as I can tell

Please clone these settings for Chromastrand ABS

@logan and @oliver, this makes sense to me too, I have been needing to up the flow rate on our more malleable material profiles (ninja, bridge, etc.). I am going to test this here soon and report back.
So we got it to fail due to the filament sensor.
I then used the LCD in "Change Filament" to extrude filament from T1 and I notices that it did begin to extrude filament right away but every couple cm the extrusion would vibrate like it was being extruded at too low of a temp. I had this issue with 2 of my 3 Alphas. When I took the toolhead off to check the wiring I noticed this:
After taking it apart, here is a better look.
I rewired that section and it seems to be extruding consistently now. @matth Let me know if you have issues with it in the future.
Apr 16 2019
@jebba oh! I misunderstood. I recently ordered some Black PLA, I am unsure why he is getting errors with a PLA, I haven't heard of that from anyone else that I can think of but Ill keep and ear/eye out and let you know when my Black Polylite comes in and I have a chance to check updates on it.
@kent, yeah, the only way I can verify an actual strip out for Ninja is by removing the filament from the toolhead and looking at it. If there is a dramatic kink in the filament it indicates the feed gear had been working on that area for too long and it is indeed a strip out.
I have been doing A LOT of Ninjaflex printing to figure this out. From what I can tell the weight of the reel is VERY significant to this. When feeding ninjaflex through your fil tube, notice how tough it is to pull through, there is so much more resistance on the path to the nozzle than we ever have had before. While this is incredibly significant it did not solve the issue mentioned earlier about ninjaflex not extruding 2 layers in. For this I discovered it was isolated to the opaque ninjaflex colors and not the translucent ones. So you are going to have a harder time with Black, Purple, Red, etc. All the colors that look opaque when extruded. Other colors like Ninjaflex's Blue, looks translucent when being extruded and does not have the same extrusion resistance.

@oliver oh!! Good to know, I wasn't sure. Thank you

@logan, there have been a few Cura updates in the last few weeks that might have improved several things but that also meant that the Poly PLA profile might have need some updating. @tutley and I did some testing with a modified profile and most up to date cura over here and got these (both have .109 FW) :
Can you try this gcode and post back how it prints on your end?
There is no M425 F1 S0 so you will need to go into the LCD "MENU" -> "ADVANCED SETTINGS" -> "BACKLASH" -> and make "Smoothing = 0.00mm" and "Correction = 100%". This is something we can set in the firmware so we wont need a customer to go into the code and add the M425 for a repeatable calibration test.
@karrad, Maybe you could try it too? Since this is so critical I would really like as many eyes and machines to try it as possible.
