I was able to drop the printing temperature by 10 degrees, and the adhesion was still great, but the stringing remained. @anolen How much did you guys reduce the printing temperature before you saw adhesion issues? Also, is there any chance that we can get a roll of Xstrand to test up here?

nathan added a comment to T3988: Wiper location tolerance stackup.

I have been working with the dual wiper pad for a large majority of the printing that I've been doing with the Dingy, and it does a good job of cleaning the nozzle a bit more thoroughly, and it has yet to miss anything. I also like it because it seems to keep less fuzz on the tip of the hot end, which is really nice when working with the larger nozzle diameter.

With petg, the prints are coming out pretty well. Good layer adhesion with the standard .6mm setting. A fair bit of stringing, but nothing terrible, mostly what you would expect from petg. I do think that we could try reducing the printing temperature by 5-10 degrees to counteract it, or increase the retraction distance. I'll post some pics of some prints here in a bit.

nathan added a comment to T4202: Banded 0.8 printing feedback.

As noted already on the Dingy ticket, the print speed will need to be lowered to speeds like the Taz 6 Moarstruder, as the ones that are set currently are too high. Aside from that, I found that a few other settings allowed for a better surface quality, and that there is an issue with sharp corners that I have yet to really nail down. Here are some photos. These were done on a Mini with firmware version 1.1.9.23

nathan added a comment to T4203: Dingy 1.2 printing feedback.

On both the Cutworm and the Tiger, we need to slow the printing speed way down on the Mini and Mini 2. The standard speed settings are at the Aerostruder speed settings, which is way too fast for good layer adhesion and print quality. After lowering the print speeds to reflect a Taz 6 with the standard Moarstruder, the prints came out much better and were actually able to finish printing. I have a bit more tests done on the Tiger, but I have seen this on both heads, so I'll not this here, then add more notes on the Tiger ticket. Photos will be incoming.

nathan added a comment to T3780: Mount Adapter Testing.

Prints are coming out really well when they stick to the bed (my fault there mostly). I've been doing a lot with ABS, which prints wonderfully with an enclosure. Inova-1800 works great with nGen or ABS settings, but the gluestick seems to actually inhibit the bed adhesion to the pint of somewhat consistent failures. Flexible filaments do really well, just be sure to print it in the PEI with (or without) gluestick, the little bit of additional adhesion is a life saver. With the z-offset, I have had to do a fair bit of adjustment, either raising or lowering the offset by about .2 every other print. Mine is currently at -1.8. Probably just due to an issue that I am making for myself. Quality wise in the prints, vertical surfaces are pretty good, but any sort of banding/binding is made immediately appearant, as the short layer height will show any and all changes in heights from one side to another. A quick banding resolution works great though. One note, all the prints I have done are on the Mini.

nathan added a comment to T3253: Update Achemon Z offset in Marlin.

A lot of the prints that I have done so far with the Achemon have required changing the z-offset. I have found that the best way to get the best z-offset is to use a brim and change it while watching for when it sticks best to the bed. I can't remember the point where it was the best, but it was usually pretty flat as far as first layers go.

nathan added a comment to T2748: Bug: V3 Dual Skirt allowed to print outside of build volume.

@karrad The skirt issues happen regardless of the tool head used for them, as it is encroaching into the safety zone. The second issue that is pictured above happens to the E1 nozzle, due to it being the only active extruder during the print. However, the gray zone disappears when the generate support and build plate adhesion are turned off, allowing the E1 extruder to get close enough to allow the fan shroud to go over the homing button and wiping pad.

nathan added a comment to T2748: Bug: V3 Dual Skirt allowed to print outside of build volume.

@karrad This issue comes up when it is being used as a Dual extruder as well, you just set the skirt or brim to print out with extruder 2, then get the brim to be in the grayed out zone on the left side of the build plate in Cura. I didn't test the right side, but the only things to run into there are the leveling corners. But you are correct that this happens when printing at the ends of the plate in the x direction.

I have done a good portion of this profile so far, and it looks like there is an issue with the heat bed being too high, as well as flat surfaces not laying down properly, although that could be an atmosphere thing. Also, the bridging is not great, but I want to test this a little more. I will continue tonight and see how it goes.

The crate print in high detail grinds out the filament every time. I think that the number of retractions and the speed of the retractions may be too low, as the high speed profile produces the crate print just fine.

I agree with Bobby, the retraction rates on the crate print alone caused the file to fail consistently, but only on the Mini. There was also some poor first layer quality on the prints that had thin parts on the first layer, like the negative space test and the crate print.

I have been running into issue for the profiles with the WIP-More supports print (the little robot) and with the Splatbag on the Taz 6. They auto level just fine, but about 2-3 layers in, the print cycles out, but the heat bed and tool head remain up to temp. I tried multiple reflashes of the firmware, but the issue continued. Everything else printed fine (albeit a few nozzle clean errors).

On the Math print for the standard profile may have an error in the Gcode, as both of these prints failed on the same layer in the same way. The tool head would reach the point of the error, then go off to the left side and maintain the heat of the tool head and bed without moving. This is happening when using the SD card.

Profile testing completed for the standard. All the prints turned out fine with great outer surface quality and it has great overhang quality. There is some weird initial surface quality where it bubble up and slightly fold over, creating small irregularities in the first layer. After the first layer however, everything stabilizes and prints without a problem. Great quality filament!
