    Print 1 succeeded, as expected. Print 2 also succeeded, with is a first in a long time. Print 2 was also a longer and more detailed print, since Print 1 provided me with the last of the small...

    Couldn't find any thin diameter metal pipes this morning, as all the shops that would sell to hobbyists or dairy industry (who use the < 10mm pipes here) were closed. Managed to find some short...

    Wonder if that's all it needs to fix my problem. Man I'm gonna feel like a muppet if it was something as simple as that. Will go hunting this weekend for something

    Yeah. I've got two semi-circles drilled in the cartridge, one for easy access to feed filament and one cause my Dad drilled the wrong side (I don't have the tools, so bribed him to do it over...

    Here's an example of the problem. I was thinking lengthening the shorter tube so it runs up through the new tubing rather than terminating within the bulkhead may discourage the filament from doing...
  6. Sorry for the confusion, I do indeed have the...

    Sorry for the confusion, I do indeed have the thicker outer tube in-place. The filament jams are bending that, and the inner tube, and acting as a pressure relief valve. This has happened with 2...

    That comment on the sharpie is great idea. I did use one when fitting the tube originally, but not as part of my QA regime.

    Aye, I suspected this melt wasn't anything unusual which has...

    From the look of my issues, the filament is getting fat in the last X mm of the inner PTFE tubing and not donuting between the tube and nozzle tip. That said, I have no way of knowing if donuting is...

    Hmm alright. Frankly i'd be fine with strings if the parts would just complete.

    I swapped to my friends filament which feels quite different to the fingers, it feels harder and more abrasive. Not...

    What colours do you rate from them? And what's wrong with the silver metal one?

    Marvle3D Filament (1.75mm)

    1st impressions
    My first filament reel was black, and I used it successfully to print scenery parts for Warhammmer 40k. So things like concrete barriers, cargo...

    Artifact being the blobs your review thread mentions at start and end of layers? Or jams like my Marvle3D filament? I can't seem to get most of the same filaments here you lot have been reviewing,...

    Even at 220C, reduced retraction, and reaming of the nozzle between prints I am still having poor luck with this filament. I really don't want to change and have to go through this process again,...

    Interesting observation.

    The maintenance you refer to, is that your drilling out the nozzle & acupuncturing the tip (and shoving the bike spoke through the tubing) routine I've read elsewhere? I'm...

    I'm already seeing a bit of stringing in my prints at 215C and 300 retraction, but it's fine enough a quick rub with a thumb cleans it right up. I'll try iterating 220, 225, 230 and increasing...

    Alright so that pane of the editor is not as simple to use. Will put my request for explanation in the appropriate thread so the answer is more readily apparent to others.

    The numbers in the interface for retraction were not editable? Is there a menu option to enable that? I am, however, able to edit the temperatures in the interface with ease.

    G'day all,

    In another thread Tommy recommended I cut my retraction by 2/3 of the original value (i.e. a 1/3 reduction). From what I can gather from this thread, I need to configure the...

    I was a bit surprised to see how far up the tube the bulges were begin pulled during retraction, I'm getting a good 1 CM of bulge with ~ 2-3mm of tube free below it - given the tube doesn't go all...

    Looks like a retraction got blocked, there was a wide part of the filament in the tube within the hotend, and none at the nozzle tip as all that could leak out due to heat and gravity did. I left one...

    Aye, I turned over the print and it says "By Dom" on the bottom. Cheeky bugger making everyone's printers autograph his work xD

    In case some people need cartridges, the place I get them from in New Zealand is trying to clear their stock of ABS Cartridges. Prices range from $10 to $100 NZ (so $6 to $64 US). I'll probably snap...

    Ran 2 cores, 2 hotends and 2 cooling towers at once and the central cores are much better formed, the grooves are more pronounced both vertically and horizontally. Also the kebab skewers seemed to do...
