Re: OctoPi produces weak prints

The right power supply would make some sense.

I know I bought my Raspberry Pi 3's as a bundle with SD and approved power supply
Here's the one I bought several of and suggest to others looking to get into Octoprint

Re: Where Do I Start?

Remember that with Octoprint/Raspberry Pi/USB connections, most 8 bit boards struggle to keep up with the data sent to them. Their IO just isn't that powerful. I print slower (40 mm/s) with Octoprint and quicker with SD Card. I asked about this last year on the Octoprint forum and got some really de...

Re: ColorFabb XT-CF20 Carbon Fiber Filament

I'd be curious of the wear on your extruder gear I haven't used the material on my CR-10S's simply because I only have the 2.85mm version of the material on hand. Have you done a lot of small test prints to dial in the material? I had to, in order to find the right temperature range. It's a mess on ...

Re: Anyone with an M3D printer?

Re: MAXTEMP BED Error

We had a board do this recently on a CR-10S 500 at work. We thought it might be a bad thermosistor then the bed temp started reading wrong too.

New board was the only real solution. I was surprised the board had to go but something on it just isn't right.

Re: Creality CR-10 S4 or Ender-5 Plus, Which To Get?

I suggest people learn on something smaller or well known...like a CR-10S. Get the hang of using the slicer, printing and then as you gain experience , then move on to something larger

Re: UM2 and IRobertI feeder - filament snaps behind bearing

How annoying

I didn't go that route, i did the [expensive] UM2+ extruder upgrade. That's worked very well.

Re: UM2 Heater Blocks

Good question....I wondered about upgrades to my UM2+ With so many out there, I was curious if someone offered some hot end upgrades or even a board upgrade to utilize better drivers (i.e. no Salmon Skin effect)
