    Sorry to hear that but I am interested and sending you a PM.

    Nah dawg :) the only thing that printer cares about is the chip on that cartridge. If the material code filament type on the chip matches the material code filament type in the print file, it will...

    I'd like to get a hold of that modified version of Eko firmware. Did you find it on this forum? I tried using the Cube Toolbox on a number of Eko firmware versions but no luck.
  6. Oh, you were able to use the toolbox to modify...

    Oh, you were able to use the toolbox to modify the EKO firmware so the cart never goes down? I wasn't aware that was an option! It absolutely works for the Cube 3 but I was under the impression that...

    Cool!

    I would advise that OEM ABS = good but OEM PLA = bad. PLA is made out of corn and is compostable, even if it's been sealed in mylar for the past 5+ years it's very brittle. And there is no...

    Ohhh, 200 micron (.2mm) print resolution. OK, in that case it looks like you have a partial clog, damaged/swollen internal PTFE tube or are using retail ABS that doesn't work well with the OEM...

    Yep, I use Elmer's purple for all but large PETG prints. It's almost as warp friendly as PLA.

    For firmware swaps, I recommend:
    EKO -> Cube 3 OEM -> Cube 3 modified (PLA, ABS and INF chips at 98%...

    Awesome! Just in case you weren't aware, you can easily swap between EKO and Cube3 firmware. I put a video showing how to do it out on YouTube when you're ready to knock down some PLA or ABS parts.

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    I am assuming you're using Simplify3d(?) based on your settings statement. It appears to me that you are under extruding. 6 top layers is plenty to get a nice...

    Oh no, sounds like there is a disconnect between you and S3D there. First of all click the "Show Advanced" button in bottom left if you are seeing the simple GUI.

    I haven't messed around with PETG in my pro yet but my Cube3 PETG profiles are set at 250C and a feed rate of 1.07 (vs. 106 for PLA). I would start around there and lower the chamber heat...

    Hi Wiz, awesome news. It sounds like you are well on your way to fully unlocking that Cube3.

    I personally use Elmer's Purple with PETG but I will use Cube Glue for the bigger prints. I will also...

    +1 to tossing old PLA.

    PLA is made out of corn, is compostable and decays. If that cartridge is nearly full, you'll need to spend 8$ in new retail PLA to make up for the amount being tossed.

    If...

    I would be surprised to hear that there is any measurable flex in gantry or any other part of the assembly. All framing components are machined to very tight tolerances. I've pulled a few frames...
  17. [ HOW TO ] Fixed temp issues on 2 Cube3s with a spring loaded center punch (no really)

    If anyone has a Cube 3 that cannot get up enough temp to print ABS or PETG (temp errors), I tripped over a solution that resolved that issue on two printers. I used the below tool to "fire" the...

    Elmer's purple glue sticks work great for me but.... I use Simplify3D and enable the function that tells it to wait until the chamber is up to temp before starting, which can take around ~30 mins for...

    Yep, that was a concern of mine initially also but no issues pressing PLA through at 260C. There are other good reasons to have lower temp versions though. For instance, anyone who is plagued with...

    [ THING ] Autoloading print files for Cube3

    For anyone with an open source solution that is still hand feeding filament into feed assemblies, I built off of MajorOCD's old work and created custom print files to load then purge filament. I also...

    RicciEU, I've recently seen a similar issue and after completely pulling the print jet apart found the internal 4mm X 2mm PTFE tube was "swollen" at the end near the print tip. It looks to me that...

    “the only big issue is that it kind of screws up the xy dimensions” - This sounds like loose belts to me. I would start by tightening them up.
