    No jams, just stopped like it was completed but only half was way finished. I tried on the right side filament and it worked.

    A 30 second chip disconnect can also stop a print.

    How long does this usually take to print? I loaded it up on my Cube and it said it was going to take 20ish hours? For the cap and hub. Does that sound right?

    That seems really long... if you are printing at 70nm...perhaps?

    Printing at 200nm should work well.

    :-)

    Nah it was actually at 200. I had everything set on the "quickest" settings I am pretty sure. I will reload everything tonight to see if maybe I just goofed something up or something. I AM still kind of a noob with this printer so

    There are a number of ways to trouble-shoot this.

    #1 Make sure the object in flat on the Z plane (Y is 3D software...).
    #2 Re-export the .cube file.
    #3 Make sure the file is centered, only one object at a time.
    #4 Rotate the mesh 90 deg in Z (Y is 3D software...), make sure it remains flat on the build plane.
    #5 Try setting WO supports....?
    #6 Perhaps try to print an object of similar size...?
    #7 Try slicing in Windows, vs OSX.
    #8 Use a different slicer....maybe. If you are unsure of what you are doing with may be difficult.

    Cheers

    zugok; what pitch did you end up with on the cap thread?

    Hey TommyDee, thanks for asking.

    I did not add the thread you suggested/provided to the top of the nozzle yet, sorry. I am not sure what existing tip thread pitch is, I made several adjustment during print tests to get it work with PC+.


    The Nozzle in my Cube 3 is still seems to be working fine, with almost constant printing since last Saturday. The longest print so far was ~18hrs.

    i finally got the clip to print. Had to rotate it, flip it, spin, etc to make it work but I got it. I tinkered with your nozzle to accept the M5 push fitting. of course, dropped the nut from the hotend so Im at a standstill till I find it.

    Which nut did you drop, Todd? I don't see a nut in the build pix.

    I was just only curious to see if I could have a triple start pitch about the same. Turns out yours is a 1.5mm pitch. I am planning to test a 3.6mm triple start pitch. The 4.5mm pitch is works nicely.

    And no worries about implementation. Post what you like and what works. I doubt I'll ever be able to print in PC+.
