Re: Ripples in the surface layer of my prints, Help!

That could be what is called "pillowing", as mentioned...not enough top layers

Re: Irratic extrusion(?) on modified Ender-3

How interesting that the same model is still giving you such awful results?

I also use a z hop on my printers, especially my Ultimaker 2+

Re: Old Brittle Filament

Honestly when I have material like that, I toss it. The cost of materials isn't super high and while there are some ways to "freshen" your brittle filament, I haven't used them. I would forever wonder if I can trust it to complete a print without issue Everyone has their preferences, favorites and b...

Re: First timer

The Tevo Tornado has an AC bed and due to their "cheap at all cost" mantra, I would avoid it. I have one. It's in the corner waiting for my electrical friend to verified its completely grounded and safe. If you don't need that sort of volume (300 x 300 X 300), the smaller printers such as the Ender3...

Re: Irratic extrusion(?) on modified Ender-3

I'm wondering about your extrusion multiplier (also called Flow Rate) Have you checked your esteps on the extruder? If you manually extrude 100mm of material, do you get 100mm? More? Less? I used Simplify3D and generally run an extrusion multiplier test print on every new filament I use. I use this ...

Re: What's everyone working on

Well an ad appeared in my local Facebook Marketplace Gentleman selling a new CR-10S. Just not his thing. I really don't *need* a third one (or a 10th printer!) But...I couldn't pass up a good deal. The print farm is getting a little bigger. I'll upgrade it to a Bondtech and not sure if I will do the...

Re: First layer problem in a Tevo Tornado with Prusa slicer.

First, I'd slow down to 40mm/sec to debug this

Have you made sure the flow/extrusion multiplier is right? I don't use Prusa slicer but that looks too close to the bed and over extruded

Re: RepetierHost. Webcam and printer setup and remote access

Raspberry PI / Octoprint works so, so well.

Just don't try printing over 50 mm/sec The USB controllers on most printers can handle it faster and steps could get skipped. (This is due to the weakness in most of their UART/IO buffers)

Re: What's everyone working on

I had Matterhacker brand spools do that repeated breaking in the feed/bowden. Their Pro PLA and their PETG. I won't buy "their" brand stuff anymore.
