I agree that this is a slice or model issue, which is why I put the ticket in. The rest of the parts that are printed on the same printers have no tolerance issues, so it would seem that we either have too tight of a tolerance and thermal swell has not been accounted for, or we have another issue with the part. I am unsure of the ultimate cause for this, but we will need to look into it so that production can build the assembly without issue. Thanks
@tutley The tightness is in the X position on this part. It does appear to fit in the Y position, but the X is so tight, that you have to use pliers to get the The AS-PR0124 metal piece in the printed part.

@EricNugent Could you take a look at the file and see if there is a difference that would cause this issue between the Gladiola and Hibiscus printer. It appears that Hibiscus prints fine.
This may be just a gcode error that has crept in.
Please let us know and we can test the file again, perhaps pull the file from Gladiola in the meantime.

@tutley . I apologize, but I am not sure what you are referring to. I only made a comment about a fail rate.
Addressing the last log from @zachah "only 4 out of 50" fail is almost 10%. That is far too high!

@DaniAO we have gone through back stock. hopefully we caught all of the parts. If any pop up we will get them fixed. Should be able to close this.

This morning the re-slice did not pass the force gauge, but it was the first parts, so we will see what comes next.
Just a note: new parts with bushings installed still have some drag (far less than previous) so will probably still require broaching. Not an issue, just an observation.

all OHAI's will need to be updated with the actual positioning and any changes made to the procedure so that any tech that needs to build a part will have clear instructions.

Thank you Eric! The issue that we are going through now is that many of our parts were mad e long before that. We are currently with the help of MER going through all the inventory parts to verify that they have the proper orientation.
Cluster techs know now what the proper orientation is and I will let the weekend techs know about this issue also, so that we can ensure this doesn't happen in the future.
The process for making all of these pads is extremely inadequate. We will continue to make these pads until we can get it changed over to the acetone pads. Please bag and red tag whatever doesn't work.
Hopefully the process will change soon, or this will be a standard for this production.

@tutley we can set that up. I will need to know where the file is for the fixture.

@tutley Thanks, I believe that this is the ticket to figure out what is wrong with the alignment. The broaching is simply to make the parts work on the line right now so that we don't throw away all the printed parts. MER should be trying to resolve why we have the issue. Perhaps they could get some help on it.
The reamers are changed regularly and we are reaming slowly. The last information from MER was to do a 3 reaming pass (slowly) to see if it assists at all with the issue. We will be glad to print with a solid fixture when that is ready and we can see if that will help with the issue at all. Just making things work while the issue is figured out.
@oliver that is because of the amount of drag that has been on all of the parts. To get them to be okay on the printer they have needed less drag than the spec, so we have been broaching all parts. They are all checked for drag before they leave Cluster, and only once inserts are put in does it appear that the drag increases. This has been an issue with the parts since we started printing them, but the issue seemed to get worse some time ago (perhaps 1 1/2 months). We should note that the drag is not due to the bushing that is installed. it is due to the orientation of the 2 parts once they have been assembled and tightened down on the printer.

I will check with the techs to make sure that they are doing them more than once.

I apologize, I thought that the issue that we were trying to fix was the center sagging. I didn't know that we had any perimeter sagging.
@west We need to move away from that type of bed corner. It takes far too long to print and we are already at requiring 3 days time to print enough printers for one day of assembly. The support in the middle should work well as the corners that are there should keep the perimeter from sagging. We have seen it work on the Taz 5 and measurements that MER has been doing have indicated that it will work. I would like to see the smaller bed corner with the center support used if the testing comes out okay.

I believe that the photo above was the last slice for Quiver. Haven't we removed the triangle? This is the PP-GP0396, correct? If we are going to change then we will need to test and remove backstock?
Mar 27 2019
make sure to let Cluster and inventory control know, so that we can remove the old and start printing the new (once the file is in Cluster Fleet).
Is the part number PP-GP0369?
Mar 14 2019
@kent , I don't know why we print from Cluster Fleet instead of drawing from an individual repo. This is the way that it has been as far as I can recall.
We can always make that different/better if you know what will work best.

The ticket is about multiple prints that retain the skirt. That is what the Cluster techs will be adding part numbers to the ticket for.
We will observe the prints and only add numbers that have that issue.
No I don't. @EricNugent would probably be the best person to ask about the design of the slice.
Dec 6 2018
I will have Cluster print 2 PP-GP0330's on Gladiolas and 2 on Hibiscus tomorrow. Then we will line up the holes and see if it is a printer type issue. I will post the results here on Monday and then we can proceed from there.

There is a document that Josh created:
That may be a good location to add all of the weights to. It has all of the parts, the part numbers and a display of the part. Very handy!

When @EricNugent gets back, we should talk about implementing this. It may reduce the workload in the future after we do all of the initial data entry.
