    Using old Cube Material

    My Cube Pro Trio broke (belt) and I don't think I am going to fix it. It and its spare parts will probably go up on government eBay eventually.

    I am trying to make use of the material I have in my other printers. Are the default temperatures used by the Cube listed anywhere? I tried running some Cube ABS in my MakerBot and it kept jamming after about 10 minutes

    That worked so long as it never stopped printing. The Methid printed the first layer with the ABS no problem and the switched to SR30 for a couple layers. Then when it swapped back to ABS I got the jam error again. I unloaded and reloaded the ABS and it printed fine for the rest of the part. So it looks like I need to find where MakerBot hid standby temperature and increase that as well

    I think 3DS uses 210C for standby on their ABS.

    I wasn't able to raise the standby temp above 200C but that was enough to fix the issue. Thanks

    Next I need to try the Cube PLA and Nylon I have

    Cube PLA is fairly generic. It gets old though and layer adhesion gives up after a while. Be sure to only use it on static prints as tension will fail sooner rather than later.

    I still have some nylon I'm afraid to open. All ears on the results if you could share.

    Ok. Good to know. I have like 17 spools of ABS, 14 spools of PLA, and 4 spools of nylon. The ABS I used today had a manufacturing date of 2014 and it printed fine once I got the settings right
